Health care delivery is changing rapidly. Digital technologies are having an enormous impact on individual health and society’s well-being. Innovations are needed to solve the future challenges of health care delivery.
Digital Health master’s programme gives you the skills and interdisciplinary knowledge to implement new technologies in health care and provides practical examples of health care innovation and digitalisation.
The studies include best practices of e-health implementation from Estonia and abroad and provide you with the relevant change management skills to contribute to health care systems’ improvement.
There are many great examples, where digital and e-health services operate well and bring value. For example, the Estonian digital prescribing system provides seamless prescription management to the whole population and the country-wide EHR connects 100% of all health care providers for efficient patient data sharing.
