Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is a key component to ensuring quality, safety, access and efficiency in healthcare. This course introduces current approaches and future directions in e-health and the use of ICT in healthcare in general, as well as key concepts and tools from the underlying discipline of health informatics.

Topics include: electronic health records (EHRs); hospital and primary care and public health information systems; supporting clinical decision-making for health professionals through ICT; e-health in the community for preventive healthcare and for patient and career support; regulatory influences on e-health including management and governance, privacy, security, and confidentiality; the role of data standards, vocabularies, and nomenclatures in e-health; research and development in e-health.

Modalità di valutazione

The assessment will be based on a written exam, covering the two parts of the integrated course (Methods and Applications) at the end of the course, and on the projects developed in the laboratory part of the course. These projects will be presented to the instructor and colleagues at the end of the course. The scores of the written exam and of the project part, weighting each for 50% of the final score, will be summed to compute the total score. In addition, optional oral exam is allowed with a +/- 3 points range modification on the total score.
