Digital Health Systems

University of Strathclyde


Digital Health is one of the fastest growing economic sectors worldwide. It's creating jobs twice as fast as any other economic sector in Scotland and globally (Financial Times 2018).

Digital Health arises from the intersection of health and care services, information technology and mobile technology, and encompasses digital products and systems that can monitor, analyse, educate and improve health and care (Deloitte 2015).

You'll learn about state-of-the-art devices (for example, sensors, wearables, apps), systems (for example, electronic health records, remote monitoring) and methods (for example, co-design, machine learning and data analytics).

You'll also learn about health and care implementation and innovation and how to deliver real world digital health solutions in context and at scale.
