Course summary

With the advances of mobile technologies such as chatbots, wearable technologies, Internet of Medical Things and the continuous boost in smartphone penetration, digital health helps to improve the healthcare delivery by making it more personalised as well as helping it to predict and prevent healthcare issues for its users before they even arise.

The aim of this course is to build a digital health workforce to bridge the knowledge gap between healthcare and computing. In doing so, we will help you to become a graduate with the skills needed to address today’s and tomorrow’s design challenges in developing digital health solutions.

We want to help you become a critically informed, agile and resourceful graduate with a critical understanding of advanced theoretical knowledge, methods and concepts of relevant digital health technologies required for supporting healthcare and social care services and products.

You’ll develop the specialised technical knowledge and practical skills to take a professional approach to the planning, design and management of digital health products to address real-world healthcare and social care problems.

If your first degree is computing or healthcare-related, this course will give you the required knowledge and skills to become a visionary digital health technologist, and provide you with a potential ‘fast-track’ into the healthcare and social care profession. Our course is distinctive in producing graduates who are able to understand the healthcare and social care perspective and create a strategic view of digital health product development, and who can also manage and lead the development of such products and services.

Having completed the course, potential career opportunities could include health systems and service designers, data analyst, application and systems developer, information governance manager, user experience consultant/practitioner, clinical information manager or planning and performance manager.

Careers

Upon completion of this course, you will possess the practical skills and theoretical knowledge necessary to enter the business computing profession, regardless of whether you currently hold any IT qualifications. As Information Technology forms a core part of the business function for many organisations, you will enjoy a wide range of career opportunities in a variety of industries.
