The NIST website outlines the role of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in establishing standards that enhance many areas of American life, including the health care industry, for example: statistics, calibration and other measurement tools, screening and diagnostics, information science and optical physics. Drilling down to division level, one can read about the various research projects under way and some full-text articles on these are freely available. NIST is also the source for official, precise time in the United States.
