|Contents:||This seminar is about the development, implementation and evaluation of IS/IT in the health care domain, which can be labeled as 'medical informatics' but also 'health IT' or 'e-health'.
Compared to the previous courses, this years' seminar will focus on medical apps. This is anexciting field that is full of opportunities to explore and evaluate. It is about apps to help doctors in their clinical work, to help managers to govern their hospitals, to help patients to cope with their diseases. Three knowledge fields are combined in this course:
(1) Health care: what are the current challenges of health care, how do clinical and organizational processes in health care look like, how do health care systems, organizations and professionals work?
(2) Mobile health: what types of mobile systems are applied in health care, what type of apps do doctors, nurses and patient use - or want to use?
(3) Medicine: What are the pathology and treatment of (choronic) diseases?
(4) Evaluation studies: what are principles and models to evaluate if apps and games in health will work? how to review apps in different stages and from different perspectives?
The different fields will be addressed and integrated in this course. After this course, you have gained more knowledge about both the drivers and barriers in medical informatics, and of medical apps in health in particular.|
|Literature:||For more information see the website of the course.
We will also use papers published in the main IT and Medical Informatics journals. In addition other materials from grey literature, conferences and events will be used, that are downloadable from websites to be announced.|
|Course form:||A seminar, as a course form, implies that students actively participate in all activities and will study the concept by themselves. Meetings are dedicated to practice and present their knowledge. This includes regular lectures and guest lectures by health informatics and healthcare professionals, reviewing apps, interviewing patients and professionals and studying/reviewing literature to find a gap in health care and inventing a new app for improving that gap. Finally, students will write a research proposal that provides an in-depth study and method/societal effect of a specific app in the medical domain. This is done individually. After the midterm, we jointly work on the building blocks of the proposal, By doing so the paper is monitored, and then will be presented for a jury at the end of the seminar.|
|Exam form:||Passing the 4 mini exams during the course. Studying and presenting the medical informatics concepts and delivering a satisfactory research proposal. Presenting and defending their idea in front of a jury and completing the assignments for the lab session.
Important: The course of the medical informatics will start on the 13th of February due to the master introduction of the graduate school of natural sciences. Be aware that the first lecture is compulsory on the 13th of February. If you do not show-up, you cannot follow the course.|
|Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:||Om aan de aanvullende toets te mogen meedoen moet de oorspronkelijke uitslag minstens 4 zijn.|
