The Digital Health Summer Course's mission is to empower health professionals to move forward the digital transformation in their institutions. In particular through the acquisition of skills to develop innovation and detect new digital health opportunities that allow new forms of work.
Focused on improving the quality and delivery of health care, through Digital Health (DH), the course explores new strategies for the creation and implementation of successful environments in Digital Health.
With a diverse team of professors from universities in Portugal and Spain and institutions related to Portuguese and Spanish health, it is aimed at different origins of health professionals where it is intended to enrich experiences.
We provide a comprehensive view of the digital health theme from how to make an organizational transformation to how to design a Digital Health project adopting technology and even ethical and legal aspects, giving the opportunity to learn, through immersive workshops directed to follow the needs of each participant, from theory to practice.
These co-creation and co-design workshops cover the entire life cycle of technological development involving end users, empowering them to ensure the usability and usefulness of solutions.
The course will have two main parts, a more theoretical first, which will address the concepts needed to better meet the objectives of the course, ending in a first practical workshop of design thinking
And a more practical second part, in which it is intended to give a series of tools to design the potential idea of Digital Health, ending in two immersive workshops:
The course should provide participants with the fundamental knowledge to be able to implement a Digital Health project.
More specifically, at the end of the course, participants will be better able to:
Student who seeks to know what the digital health world is but who has an entrepreneurial spirit and who wants to innovate in his organization, do different and make an impact inside and outside the organization.
Focus on Health Professionals: physicians, managers and professionals with decision responsibilities
It is organized by a School with a strong tradition on Public Health training and by Nova IMS; was designed by a group of national and international experts including NOVA NSPH, Nova IMS, SPMS, the Patient Innovation Association and links to schools such as IESE Business School and research combined with knowledge transfer with the Technological Center of Catalonia - EURECAT.
Each programme module is coordinated by recognised experts from the respective area (see Detailed Programme). Two modules of the course will be dedicated to immersive workshops, one in Lisbon and the other from Barcelona. In each of the modules we want a participatory and immersive teaching model.
DHSC will be on-line with presential option on the workshops.
