Who is this programme for?

The Digital Transformation in Healthcare programme is designed for:

  • Mid-level business/functional managers and C-suite executives looking to future-proof their teams and strategies with a practical understanding of key uses of technology for advancing healthcare system goals

  • Clinical leaders interested in advancing healthcare service delivery, patient outcomes and operational productivity

  • Consultants or entrepreneurs looking to identify strategies to advance healthcare system goals and provide innovative products and solutions that directly address critical healthcare opportunities

Playbook activities and simulations

Having the opportunity to simulate healthcare scenarios by changing different care parameters can provide an illuminating look at the effect digital innovations can have on healthcare outcomes.

Throughout this programme, you will:

  • Use the Simul8 platform to complete an ongoing disease progression simulation focused on sepsis, a condition that’s more common than heart attacks and one that can be difficult to diagnose and treat.

  • Test different improvement interventions, and anticipate the impact they will have on factors such as length of stay, cost and mortality.

  • Discover best practices you can take back and implement within your health system.
