Our 2020 Transformative Digital Skills for Healthcare (TDSH) programme included ten modules, covering core areas of digitalisation in healthcare. Candidates were able to select the modules most applicable to their work. The programme was structured to address three central needs.
To successfully lead a digital health strategy in your hospital you need an understanding of the economics of implementing digitalisation: cost savings and service improvements. You also require an understanding of the project management methodologies used to implement these programmes. The TDSH programme provided participants with the necessary tools to take on this leadership role.
There are many elements of digital transformation: new technology and new processes for using it. Healthcare professionals need to understand what changes may be proposed and make appropriate recommendations for how these can be implemented in their area.
Through our real world scenarios, showing implementation across a range of specialities, participants were be able to see what challenges lie along the way and how new technologies have been used to provide improved patient care.
What skills do you need?
The TDSH curriculum is divided into three main sections:
Transversal skills: a broader, cross-thematic set of skills necessary to understand and enable the digital transformation of healthcare.
Technology: specific technology applications that have a direct impact on healthcare.
Management: designed to meet the needs of healthcare professionals with management responsibilities.
The modular structure allows participants to focus on individual learning paths and choose the most relevant skills to support the own learning journey. A combination of different modules is highly encouraged.
