Subject outline

In this subject you will be introduced to the role of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the delivery of healthcare. Beginning with an investigation of what is "digital health", you will become familiar with the most common digital technologies utilised by healthcare professionals. The benefits and challenges surrounding the introduction of digital health for both health professionals and consumers will be explored. The common enablers of, and barriers to, adoption will be identified. You will research the technological, clinical, social, legal and ethical impacts of the digitisation of health care. Past successes and failures, and future trends in digital health, will be explored along with the international and national drivers for a digital health strategy.
