DS4Health will design and deliver an international Master’s programme in digital health. It will address the key applications Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Data, Robotics, and Internet of Things. DS4Health will improve higher education for healthcare professionals in digital skills and deepen insight in design, use, and development of digital technologies to form a modern, ethically responsible, efficient and citizen-centred healthcare. The programme considers specifically soft skills, entrepreneurship and a citizen-centred, application-driven co-design approach supporting to aim the digital agenda, and societal challenges as addressed in European Pillar of Social Rights principles on health, inclusion and care and Sustainable Development Goals. The application digital health has significant growth potential and is one of the domains of strongest societal need for digital specialists. The present programme will help closing the gap by enlarging its contents especially to countries with a low Digital Economy Society Index. The DS4Health consortium will establish new digital healthcare professionals with up to 450 students to be trained per year. It will significantly enhance currently established programmes by modular collaborative curricula. Identification of needs, understanding of the medical and procedural needs of healthcare, and processes and interoperability are key elements. DS4Health will increase the options for students to be trained in advanced technologies with a clear view on digital transformation of healthcare towards a clinical digital ecosystem. The programme brings together a unique composition of our experienced consortium that will create a world leading, multiple location training programme to specialize in digital for healthcare. The consortium will strengthen collaboration in a sustained structural cooperation, bridging training needs, scientific excellence and development of technology in and for the digital health market.
