Transforming e-health through e-learning

27 July 2012

Healthcare providers worldwide collect and use data for improved health outcomes. However, in many countries, the use of electronic health technologies is extremely varied, leading to what can become life-threatening gaps in information.

Intel and Futures Group are working together to transform eHealth in order to improve healthcare in Africa through information communications technology.

On August 2, the companies will join forces to host the “Transforming eHEALTH with eLEARNING in Africa” technical workshop.  Leaders from Kenya, Nigeria and Tanzania will come together to share current eHealth projects and national strategies and discuss the barriers they face in their eHealth programs.

Mindful of the wide range of stakeholders needed to affect this dramatic change in eHealth, the workshop brings together representatives from governments, the private sector, donors and the international development community. The workshop aims to formulate public-private partnership that advance healthcare information technology and support countries as they work to overcome challenges to eHealth implementation.

eLearning has the ability to transform eHealth and significantly impact global healthcare by putting the power of learning in the hands of the health work force. It also can be a cost effective tool for training health care workers. Workshop participants will discuss and demonstrate the use of eLearning tools to train health care delivery personnel on the use of eHealth technology. Domain experts will demonstrate practical eHealth and eLearning applications on proven technological platforms and create a forum for country domain experts to share experiences and formulate next steps.
