HI 201 is a core subject in MS Health Informatics.
The course description for HI 201: spectrum of health informatics domains in the Philippine healthcare situation. Course credit is 3 units.
A few weeks ago, I met my students to tell them what I meant to do with Health Informatics 201. I had proposed that the course will use project-based learning, which Wikipedia defines as,
“use of in-depth and rigorous classroom projects to facilitate learning and assess student competence (not to be confused with problem-based learning).”
I proposed an assignment for each of the 16 weeks of the semester – an ambitious undertaking which we hope to document here on edublogs.org. Each week will be dedicated to a theme and a project which will have a driving question.
- E-health in the Philippines
- Diffusion of Innovation in Health Care
- Evaluating Health Information Systems
- Challenges for Electronic Health Records
- EHR Implementation and Evaluation
- Clinical Decision Support
- Personal Health Records
- Messaging Standards
- Terminology Standards
- Imaging Standards
- Privacy, Confidentiality and Security
- Knowledge Management and Information Retrieval
- The Internet and E-Health
- Legal and Regulatory Issues in E-Health
A driving question is defined by leadingpbl.org in this manner –
A Driving Question is one that focuses all other questions towards a solution or product. This question is complex, requires multiple activities and the synthesis of information from numerous sources. Driving Questions serve to organize and drive activities; and these activities result in a series of artifacts, or products, that culminate in a final product that addresses the original question.
Assignments will be uploaded to our Moodle site at http://www.moodle.ms-healthinfo.net. Moodle is a closed space so this class blog is our way of sharing our products with the world. 🙂
