The University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO), one of the four main University of Nebraska campuses, houses the Peter Kiewit Institute of Information Science, Technology and Engineering, a dynamic alliance of education and industry that focuses on information technology and cyber security research. Experts at the Peter Kiewit Institute and health care professionals at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the Nebraska Public Health Laboratory developed the Secure Telecommunications Application Terminal Package system (STATPack™). STATPack™ is a secure, dedicated, HIPPA-compliant web-based network system that supports telecommunication connectivity of clinical health laboratories to increase preparedness for bioterrorism events. This system consists of a computer and high resolution camera that photographs culture plates to send to a hub health laboratory for consultation regarding unknown organisms or suspicious packages. STATPack™ systems are located in Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Kansas.
