Working Group on Digital Skills and Technology in Healthcare and Education
Co-Chairs: Mrs. Rachelle Blake and Dr. Val Kozmenko
Digital solutions have the potential to radically transform health systems and education by providing better outcomes, service and quality through technopolitical advances. Europe faces increased demand for health services due to ageing populations, rising patient mobility, and a diminishing supply of health workers caused by retirement rates that surpass recruitment rates. Digital technologies, including eHealth advancements, aim to tackle these issues by creating smarter healthcare process, allowing services to be delivered closer to patients, and reducing the workload of healthcare professionals. However, health professionals’ digital skills often fall short of the required level to use such new technology. This working group assesses this issue and aims to find educational solutions to issues related to new technology and digital skills.
