Australia’s health sector has long demonstrated its commitment to utilising technological advances to improve service delivery and patient outcomes. This ability to adapt and adopt has been on display in recent months as innovations such as telehealth, the rapid collection and sharing of data, and major shifts in health care planning and delivery settings have played a vital role in our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The potential contribution digitally enabled healthcare can make to system-wide capacity and capability continues to be vast but keeping up with the unrelenting pace of technological change remains a challenge.
The Digital Health CRC has partnered with RMIT Online to deliver a suite of ground-breaking, industry-relevant digital health micro-credentials.
Each of the three courses - Technology Enabled Care, Healthcare Design and Digital Health Strategy and Change - will be a blend of learning and coaching by industry mentors and take just six weeks to complete, allowing participants to make an immediate impact in their own workplace and more broadly.
Delivered entirely online, the program is designed to fit in and around work and life commitments.
These courses will equip Australia’s healthcare professionals and organisations with the capability to integrate technologies such as apps, wearables, internet-enabled devices, virtual/augmented reality, AI and data analytics to improve delivery of patient care.
Recognising the opportunities created by ongoing expansion of local digital health expertise, the Digital Health CRC is pleased to offer 105 sponsored places across these three courses.
Expressions of interest are open from 4 August to 18 August and successful applicants will be notified in the week beginning 24 August 2020.
