Exponential advances in science and technology have led to profound opportunities in healthcare — new treatments, new care delivery models, and expanded access to services, support, and tools that profoundly improve and save lives and deliver care to a growing population.
Northeastern University has paired faculty practitioners with industry experts to create a unique training designed to fit within a busy clinician’s or healthcare professional’s schedule, with short online modules allowing a participant to learn at his or her own pace.
The Professional Certificate in Telehealth offered by Northeastern University’s Bouvé College is an 9-module online program designed for clinicians of all practices and healthcare administrators who understand the importance and timeliness of a virtual care model. The program consists of the following topics:
This module considers how to enhance the skills of clinicians using technology to communicate with each other when they are not physically face-to-face.
We explore the use of social media applications as adjuncts in care delivery through enhanced understanding of social networking.
How do we develop a better understanding and use of teamwork in care pathways by promoting coordination, collaboration, communication and decision making to achieve optimal healthcare outcomes?
In this module, we look at the use of technology platforms for performing or enhancing tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.
