September 18, 2007

Purdue University has received another shot of money to find ways to use engineering principles to improve health care.

The Regenstrief Foundation has donated $2.45 million to improve cancer care, patient scheduling, and phone- and internet-based health care, Purdue officials announced this morning.

The Indianapolis-based foundation, which helped launch Purdue's Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering in 2005, will invest $1.35 million in a joint cancer care- engineering project involving Purdue, Indiana University and the Veterans Affairs Hospital.

The Regenstrief Center at Purdue also will receive $1.1 million to research a more systematic approach to patient scheduling to reduce no-shows at hospitals and clinics.

The Regenstrief Foundation also provides funding for the Indianapolis-based Regenstrief Institute Inc.
