Health Informatics and technology (HealthTech) plays a critical role in modern healthcare, driving changes in the availability and delivery of health information that leads to improved patient safety and higher level of care. The increased dependency by physicians, nurses and other health(care) professionals on Health IT systems coupled with the lack of qualified and experienced health informaticians translate to high demands for professionals working in the healthcare eco-system to be trained in basic yet comprehensive health informatics knowledge to maximize if not leverage “the new possibilities” – to serve as enablers.

The Mini-HI™ is designed to empower you be that enabler

A unique program, the Mini-HI™ goes beyond an essential or basic course (which often leaves participants walking away thinking Health Informatics is IT, resulting in failed implementations) by “Bridging the eHealth Divide” among professionals working within and around Health Informatics (which in the modern world – means everyone working in health, healthcare and medicine), empowering participants to apply the relevant concepts, theories and practices to real-life situations, helping them decide, design, implement and/or adopt Health IT, Information Technology etc. as an enabler to achieve better health outcomes in their facility.
