Banner ehealth is the answerCurrent university and other partnerships

eHE provides course development guidance and, in some cases, course delivery directly into university programs, reducing their risk by allowing the university to offer highly specialised eHealth course material provided by experts without the need to have these individuals on staff.

In the new digital environment it is essential to have well structured electronic health records (EHRs). The Australian Government is committed to e-health and is facilitating the transition of paper-based clinical record keeping to electronic means for better information exchange.

Universities offering any health professional program need to ensure that future graduates are well prepared to enable them to make the best possible use of available technologies and to contribute to future system development and implementation.

Health Informatics is interdisciplinary and the discipline is not well suited to University infrastructures as Faculties focus on delivering education in well established health, business and computer science disciplines. There is an urgent need for Health Information Data Governance and Management improvements and clinical informatics course content to better fit the health workforce for today’s digital environment.

Curriculum Guidelines

eHE staff the credentials to assist any University based curriculum committee to review existing or develop new curricula that incorporate the necessary content to ensure desired graduate HI competencies are achieved based on the Australian HI Educational Framework and International HI Education guidelines.
eHE is available to develop and/or offer suitable e-Health courses for the inclusion into any University’s degree programs in a manner that meets their accreditation requirements.

European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

eHe use the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) for the purpose of allocating credits to many of the short courses and subjects offered. The system is used across Europe for credit transfer (student mobility) and credit accumulation (learning paths towards a degree). It also informs curriculum design and quality assurance.

60 ECTS credits are attached to the workload of a full-time year of formal learning (academic year) and the associated learning outcomes. In most cases, student workload ranges from 1,500 to 1,800 hours for an academic year, whereby one credit corresponds to 25 to 30 hours of work. Many eHealth Education short courses offered have been allocated ECTS credits.
