About this Unit
Patient-Centred Digital Healthcare introduces students to consumer engagement and consumer informatics approaches and many other examples of innovations using data analytics and digital health strategies in clinical, community-based, and home-based settings. Students will learn about the role of Patient-facing Technologies to empower patients and improve safety and the importance of standardisation of the electronic management of healthcare information and the automation of clinical processes in delivering patient-centred care. Central to fulfilling this role is ensuring that care is delivered in a safe and effective manner. Students are encouraged to identify, articulate, reflect upon, and value digital health technologies in their local health services.
