Digital health represents the convergence of healthcare delivery through multiple digital platforms including mobile applications, data analytics, genomics and artificial intelligence. Digital health is also among the key phenomena which drives the next cycle of transformation in the healthcare industry especially with the changing role of the consumer and healthcare landscape. The phenomenal growth of digital health warrants the next generation of health specialists to be equipped with knowledge and skills essential for evaluation and administration of appropriate digital solutions to their health settings. The course will stimulate thinking on digital health (at macro level) with a focus on the implementation and evaluation of these new technologies (at micro level) at the health facility (e.g. local health district or a health network). The course will also provide an in-depth understanding and critical evaluation of digital health applications, inter-operability standards and framework including key topics such as governance and ethics. In addition, there will be an exploration of the theoretical principles in evaluation of digital health interventions in this course.

Interested students, who are not enrolled in a Masters program offered by the School of Public Health and Community Medicine will need to contact the course convenor, who will assess whether they have the appropriate background, before enrolling in this course.
