The Trans Atlantic telehealth research Network and Centre for Innovative Medical Technology at Odense University Hospital have organised a 5 days PhD Course, the subject is research methods in innovation processes for Digital health Technology. Other participating organisations are Aalborg University Denmark, CITRIS and the BANATAO Institute, the University of California and University of Southern Denmark.
The aim of the PhD program is to give a comprehensive introduction to research methods used in different phases of the innovation processes for Digital Health Technologies such as Telehealth, home monitoring, mobile health, video consultation, artificial intelligence and electronic health record. The course focusses on current and next generation of the digital health Technologies research methodology health community and models of digital health and have interdisciplinary faculty and students from policy to medicine and Engineering
The 2019 course will have a special focus on research methods used in assessment of the outcomes and value of digital health Technologies and on implementation of this technology in Healthcare organisations. Digital Health Experts of from around the world will evaluate the following digital health Technology at Odense University Hospital
– Home monitoring of COPD patient’s,
– telemedicine for patients with Diabetic foot ulcers,
– mobile health application for patient
– video alternative for outpatient treatment at the hospital and
– treatment at home for premature infants
Academician and researchers in digital health from MGUMST, Jaipur are invited to participate in this 5 days PhD Course work. Senior academicians and researchers from Centre for health Technology, University Of California Davis USA; a department of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School, department of health Science and Technology AALBORD University will evaluate the different digital health interventions.
5 days workshop will be done with an interdisciplinary team approach to innovate digital health Technology. Team members from industry, academia & research spanning across the disciplines will work on
– assessment of clinical outcomes
– safety assessment of patient acceptability
– assessment of clinical AI Technologies
– health economic assessment implementation
– science barriers and
– facilitate a discussion on implementation of digital health Technologies
About the Course: (Source)
The Transatlantic Telehealth Research Network (TTRN) is arranging the third Ph.D. course at the Center for Innovative Medical Technologies (CIMT) at Odense University Hospital (OUH) and University of Southern Denmark, August 12-16th 2019.
Aim of the Course
The aim of the Ph.D. course is to give a comprehensive introduction to research methods used in the different phases of the innovation process for digital health technologies such as telehealth, home monitoring, mHealth, video consultation, robot surgery, artificial intelligence, electronic health record systems, POCT (Point of Care Testing) devices etc. Thus, Ph.D. students will during the course learn about relevant research methods and their strengths and weaknesses in the design, assessment and implementation of digital health technologies. During the course the students will examine the possibilities for using the methods in their own Ph.D. project.
The course focus on current and next generation of digital health technologies, research methodologies, health communities and models of digital health care, and have an interdisciplinary faculty and students from policy to medicine and engineering. The 2019 course will have special focus on research methods used in assessment of the outcomes and value of digital health technologies and on the implementation of these technologies in healthcare organizations. Thus, the course will give students tools to ensure that new health technologies are implemented and adopted in healthcare in practice and used in large scale. Different types of research methods and designs in assessment of clinical outcomes, patient perception, health economics and organizational impact will be discussed during the course.
OUH is a leading European university hospital with regard to research in and practical use of telehealth and digital health technologies. As part of the course students will each day meet and talk with researchers, doctors and nurses involved in different telehealth programs at the hospital.
Examples of digital health technologies at OUH:
– Home monitoring of COPD patients
– Telemedicine for patients with diabetic foot ulcers
– PRO and mHealth app for patients
– Video as alternative for outpatient treatment
– Hospital at Home for premature infants etc
