Transformative Digital Skills for Healthcare

Drive the future of healthcare

Transformative Digital Skills are vital to shape the future of healthcare to provide better services at lower costs, allowing allocation of more valuable time for patient treatment and reduction of administrative workload. The Transformative Digital Skills for Healthcare program is specifically designed to make that happen by enabling health professionals to drive technology-driven innovations. 

The program is composed of interdisciplinary, technology and management modules

The modular structure of our program allows participants to choose an individual pathway to acquire the most relevant skills for them to drive digital innovations in healthcare.

The program consists of online modules with self-paced learning content, virtual live sessions and individual/peer project work. The average learning time for a module will be 15 hours in a 4 to 5 week period. Upon successful completion of a module, you will receive a certificate of completion.

This online program enables you to design and implement technology-enabled initiatives to improve health care with relevant knowledge, tools and strategies. You will be able to:

1. Understand emerging digital technologies

in order to anticipate the impact on your own workplace and the health care ecosystem

2. Support innovations in digital healthcare 

to improve processes, structures and cultures

3. Be prepared to apply good practices and insights from the program

to your day-to-day work and business

4. Measure the value and benefit of digital technologies in patient care

in order to improve the health and care sectors

5. Engage with your peers and experts/trainers of the program

as a supporting network of knowledge, inspiration and feedback

“Transformative Digital Skills for Healthcare” is developed for healthcare professionals who are determined to seize the opportunities offered by digital transformation. Clinicians, nurses and hospital management will benefit from this program as well as change agents at payers, provider organisations, medical device, pharmaceuticals and supporting professional service providers. We will bring together the healthcare ecosystem to drive technology-enabled innovations and change initiatives.
