There is a fundamental skills gap in the field of eHealth and the integration of Big Data within healthcare. As these fields move constantly every day, the ability for professionals to keep abreast of the latest research and how to apply methods in product management is challenging. The purpose of this course is to help address this skills shortage by providing ICT professionals with the tools to certify knowledge and have the confidence to design, develop and deploy solutions to impact public health.

This course will enable participants to understand the emerging trends and issues in Big Data and how to manage initiatives that produce innovations to impact digital management of healthcare information.
