LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Computing and technology students from Cameron University met with Comanche County Memorial Hospital to present a program specifically made for the hospital.

Students from several departments worked together to create a special tracking system they call the "Bone log." The system will allow the hospital to keep track of surgical and transplant material from arrival to implant. In addition to giving the hospital a new way to catalog and track materials, the capstone project also gives students experience with professional-level programming and design.

"These students are absolutely fantastic, they have worked four months on a project that would sell for $50,000 - $100,000 if it were to sell," said David Smith, instructor.

This is the second time CCMH has partnered with the university for a programming capstone, but Cameron University has also done projects for the City of Lawton, CASA and the Lawton Police Department.

The school plans to work with Fort Sill for next year's project.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
