Developing, Educating and Advancing the eHealth Workforce through a Foundational Curriculum

Virtual Event

Mar 27, 2018 10:00am - 11:00am CDT
TIGER Virtual Learning Environment

Culminating the 21-month EU*US eHealth Work Project, the Foundational Curricula is a global introductory online course in eHealth. Drawing on the findings of the Survey of Current Trends and Needs, the Gap Analysis, and the Case Study Deliverables from the Project, as well as other resources available, such as tools from the TIGER (Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform) Initiative’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) Curriculum, the globally applicable curricula course provides baseline and basic health competencies upon completion. The course equates to 60 unit hours of education which cover 40 different areas of competency, includes objectives, activities and exercises, and was designed to function seamlessly in physical, online and hybrid classrooms in the US, EU as well as globally. This course also aligns with certifications such as CA-CPHIMS. Join us for this exciting unveiling of the Foundational Curricula!
