How can technology make you healthy? Learn about the design, application, implementation and evaluation of eHealth.[+]
eHealth refers to the use of technologies to improve well-being, health, and healthcare. It is an umbrella term that captures concepts about the health context, technology, and people. In this free online course, we will provide you with insight into the domain of eHealth, describe methods to develop eHealth, and explain theories that enable behavior change and facilitate implementation. You will also understand how eHealth technologies are developed and used in practice, using a variety of case studies, assignments and examples. This course pays attention to the perspectives of the eHealth developers, patients, healthcare professionals and healthy people who want to improve or maintain their health and wellbeing. These perspectives are applied to the three main topics of this course: During Weeks 1 and 2, we will introduce eHealth and show you how eHealth technologies are used to enable or improve self-care and prevention, supportive care, and societal health. Weeks 3 and four will focus on design. You will learn how to design eHealth that fits the user and the context and can seduce or support people into changing their behavior. In Weeks 5 and 6, we focus on the diffusion and evaluation of eHealth technologies within the intended context, and among users and other relevant stakeholders. After finishing this course, you will have new knowledge about eHealth, acquired relevant eHealth skills, and gained insight into the use of eHealth in practice.... [-]
