Due to the increasing demand for eHealth applications from patients, the growing supply of ICT solutions, and the value of big data, the healthcare landscape is changing rapidly. The department of Medical Informatics developed the first online master programme in Health Informatics which prepares healthcare professionals for a future with ICT.
Students learn to make rational and theory- or evidence based decisions about health IT projects in clinical practice. The programme exists of 10 modules (ABAN accredited) which can be followed independently or as part of the NVAO accredited master program. Examples of modules include essentials of informatics, e-Health and self-management, decision support systems, big data, privacy and information protection and much more. Because all modules are offered online and part-time, with motivating exercises and deadlines to keep the student on track, it is possible to combine the programme with a (full-time) job.
