What is TIGER?
TIGER (Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform) is an interprofessional grassroots initiative focused on education reform, fostering community development and global workforce development. The spirit of TIGER is to maximize the integration of technology and informatics into seamless practice, education, research, and resource development.
TIGER’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is a one-stop online eHealth/health IT education portal offering courses and resources to integrate into your curriculum, plus live and on-demand webinars.
Global Health Informatics Recommendations
Health informatics recommendations on competencies and education underpin the design of curricula and courses, but they cannot inform educators on how the content can be customized for local needs and requirements. The TIGER International Competency Synthesis Project (ICSP) and the EU*US eHealth Work Project, funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 innovation grant program, were executed to empirically describe and validate the TIGER framework of health informatics competencies for a broad range of health professionals and their interprofessional collaboration. Watch former co-chairs of the TIGER International Task Force, Drs. Ursula Hübner, Professor, University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück, Germany and Beth Elias, Associate Professor/Founding Program Director of Health Informatics, Mary Balwin University, present these important project findings at HIMSS19.
