Health Education England has partnered with Yale University in the United States to support people who want to work in the international digital health industry.
People who want to explore health and social care internationally are encouraged to allow for better collaboration and better outcomes for patients to apply for the Digital Futures Program.
The International Digital Leadership Program offers a comprehensive learning experience that includes experiential learning, access to extensive curricular resources, and interaction with top academics from both the UK and the US.
Patrick Mitchell, Director of Innovation, Digital and Transformation at Health Education England, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for any senior leader in health, social care or local government to better present and understand the digital agenda. and how it develops they can transform your organization and expand your thinking from local to global. “
The program has helped alumni better understand the importance of collaboration, as well as advanced digital programs that have stalled.
Anita Sargeant, head of the School of Allied Health Professions and a midwife at Bradford University and a graduate of last year’s program, added: shared, systematic and strategic can be summed up in one problem … important, as a health educator, we have a role to play in the transformation of health systems.
“I would recommend the Digital Futures Program as a space to share learning between disciplines and professions that provide extensive experience and knowledge to take advantage of. It’s been good and it’s been a lot of fun. “
A locomotive transformation (MSK) team from Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin used the program to advance their project that had stalled, with an important component of the transformation based on digital solutions.
The health, education and local government team used the need to establish new ways of working during the pandemic to generate “digital confidence” and devoted the time available during the closure to working online to further develop confidence. professional and personal among stakeholders.
They developed a collaboration strategy in the STP cloud and implemented a number of digital tools that were needed to support new ways of working during the pandemic, but which also adapted to the needs of the MSK transformation project.
Consecutively, the clinical head worked with stakeholders to further involve the MSK forum to evolve into an online stakeholder governing body for the project.
This combination of interventions has renewed the project, ensured a total and adequate commitment and commitment, has made it possible to close and commit to implementing the new clinical model, including digitally enabled solutions.
The deadline to apply for the Digital Futures Program is June 30, 2021. You can find more information on how to apply here.
