The York Technology Association was established in 1983 as an economic development community supporting the growth of technology companies in the greater Toronto Region. The Association has evolved into a cluster of economic activity, drawing together technology and key service companies supporting sustained economic development. The YTA draws its members from the Region considered to be at the centre-point of Canada's most economically active technology corridor according to the independent Branhan 300 list of technology companies. The YTA provides a connection to more than 5,000 leaders and influencers of the technology cluster in the Greater Toronto Region in Ontario, Canada. The goal for the YTA is a simple one: to foster a healthy eco-system of inter-related executives, companies, technologies and services to build sustainable business success.A not-for-profit group, the YTA is a member-driven community offering peer collaboration, innovation, education and economic development opportunity key to technology businesses and their people.Membership is company based - with all members in an organization having access to the programs, services and events to help build community and support innovation and economic development.

The antimicrobial properties of copper have been used by civilizations for millennia. More recently, touch surfaces made from solid copper and its alloys have been granted a public health product registration by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), meaning they can be promoted as capable of killing disease-causing bacteria. This registration was granted after the materials passed a series of rigorous tests proving they kill more than 99.9% of certain bacteria within two hours. 490 copper alloys with a minimum copper content of 60 w/o are registered. A clinical trial conducted in the intensive care units (ICU) of three hospitals found that copper-alloy touch surfaces reduce bacteria by 83% on average compared with equivalent surfaces made from plastic, wood, or other metals such as stainless steel. This reduction in environmental bacterial load led to a 40% reduction in the hospitalacquired infection rate of patients hospitalized in rooms with copper-alloy touch surfaces.

The recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada brought about new technologies this year such as three-dimensional television without the need for 3D glasses, as well as new mobile phones, including the Google Nexus One, whose announcement was timed with the start of CES.1 Although many of these new and innovative gadgets appear to be geared for gadget collectors versus the practice of medicine, many of these innovations have implications for the medical office as well. This column highlights some of the upcoming hardware that will help the medical professional on the go. © MBL Communications Inc.
