Leerdoelen Learning outcomes:
• Describe the current state, and the key developments leading up to this state of E-Health, including providing a categorization of E-Health applications.
• Identify contextual factors, including key actors, existing technical infrastructure, and novel innovations, that influence E-Health efficacy, efficiency, effectiveness, and ethical aspects and explain their relevance.
• Analyze the design characteristics of an E-Health application within its context in terms of its efficacy, efficiency, effectiveness, and ethical aspects.
• Reflect upon the appropriateness of an E-Health application in use in terms of efficacy, effectiveness, efficiency, and ethical aspects.
• Translate research findings into recommendations for practitioners to improve efficacy, effectiveness, efficiency, and/or ethical aspects.
• Present and defend outcomes in an appalling and convincing way to a panel of expert practitioners and scientist.
• Apply academic knowledge from multiple sources and relevant to the empirical case assigned in a team setting.
Omschrijving During the course students will get familiar with the developing landscape of E-Health applications, their uses, and the reported effects in the literature. They will critically reflect on E-Health’s usefulness in practice. The course will focus on two main areas:

1. The interplay between specific design requirements and strategies, the evolution of E-Health applications, and the role of key actors during this process. First, by acquainting the student with perspectives on technology design, students learn to suggest a design strategy to arrive at a fitting design for a specified set of actors. Second, by tracing back the evolvement of an E-Health application, students develop the skills to analyze expected E-Health outcomes based on past successes and failures. Finally, by analyzing key actors’ current perspectives on E-Health, students learn about the complexities surrounding E-Health use.

2. Outcomes in terms of efficacy, effectiveness, efficiency, and ethics. Students learn about the difficulties regarding the assessment of E-Health related outcomes and are introduced to evaluation perspectives that may help to overcome some of these difficulties. In particular, students gain knowledge about ethical aspects of E-Health use, e.g., socio-economic barriers to E-Health use, E-Health literacy, privacy and security of health-related data.
