Detailed curriculum information

Introduction to eHealth & emerging technologies

This module will examine the current landscape of eHealth technologies and discuss recent consumer trends in wearables and digital data management. This will provide a background for course participants to understand the current state of eHealth in practice, with perspective on advances in mHealth (mobile health), information technology healthcare, digital health and telemedicine.

eHealth Methodology

This module will examine methods in the design, development and deployment of eHealth technologies. Particular focus will be placed on key software engineering principles necessary in the design of eHealth solutions development.

Organisational dynamics in eHealth implementations

This module will use organisational behaviour principles to examine the issues faced when introducing eHealth solutions in organisations and within a clinical context. Key emphasis will be placed on the changes eHealth solutions introduce in view of privacy, management and implementation within a clinical, commercial and personal context.

Consolidation and eHealth Project Delivery

The final module will consolidate learning from the previous modules and provide a framework to allow participants to be able to plan, manage and lead an eHealth project.

Audience

ICT and medical professionals at healthcare organisations, looking to acquire new skills or certify their understanding of eHealth within their domain.
