Our Research Approach

Three principles drive Alpha IT’s research approach.

We leverage the diverse insights of our multidisciplinary R&D team

To achieve our mission, Alpha IT has assembled an unrivalled team of 35 in-house researchers, many of whom hold Doctorate or Masters degrees in such diverse fields as computer science, business administration, engineering, chemistry and clinical research. These research personnel are actively engaged in both basic research and applied research.

We follow a disciplined methodology that begins with basic research

Every basic research project we undertake arises from the observation of an unmet need or opportunity to enhance the practice of healthcare.

After rigorously defining the problem and proposing conceptual solutions, we review the literature and assemble the mathematical and computer-science tools we need to solve the problem.

In an iterative manner, we evaluate each conceptual solution and collect relevant data, conduct simulations and then revise our solution until we arrive at a working, validated prototype.

We conduct all research activity in Canada, not overseas

Alpha has always been deeply committed to expanding the capabilities of healthcare researchers here in Canada. Rather than reaping potential cost-savings from contracting overseas personnel to conduct our research activities, we hire the best and brightest new talent here at home, then offer these individuals the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills by working alongside the most experienced minds in healthcare research.
