The NITRD Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group (HITRD IWG) requests input to collect information on new approaches from industry, academia, and non-governmental organizations, to solve the interoperability issues between medical devices, data, and platforms.

Yet many authors confirm that there are weaknesses in research designs and reports that have rendered past educational studies less than helpful (Berliner, 2002; Burkhardt & Schoenfled, 2003; Kaestle, 1993; Lederman, 2003 ). Other writers have focused on the special problems reflected in studies of educational technology topics (Clark, 1983, 1985, 1991, 1994; Cradler, 2003; Roblyer & Knezek, 2003; Roblyer, 2004).

The Journal of Technology Research (JTR) publishes original, unpublished manuscripts related to contemporary issues in information technology. Although studies that employ experimental or qualitative approaches, as well as mixed-methods ones (Chatterji, 2004), can help researchers understand the effects of technology on student learning, an article reporting technology research should have a methods section that shows a good match between the questions being addressed in the study and the designs and methods used to carry it out.

Early stage technology development can be described in two phases: (I) exploratory proof-of-principle research to determine the best approach for a technology development project, and (II) the subsequent research and development that focuses exclusively on creating a working technology before application to biomedical problems is possible.

In order to realize these, Technology Research Laboratory will pursue social tasks through active cooperation with research institutions, universities and companies, acquiring innovative technologies, deepening the technology and integration, promoting new businesses from a mid to long-term perspective, and we will create innovation.
