About the project

Health Information Systems training and certification implementation for higher education (HIS4HE) project addresses the education and labour market needs of medicine students in higher education schools, users of patient data systems, such as doctors, nurses and healthcare support staff, etc. The project is founded within the Erasmus+ program of the European Commission.

KTU coordinates the 24 month lasting project from October 2016 till the end of September 2018.

Target group

Learning products will be designed for existing and future health sector professionals seeking to develop and certify their qualification in HIS usage. In the sectoral perspective, target group is health students and trainers.
In labour market perspective, implementation of ECDL Health module will increase professional qualifications of young health specialists and help meet health sector requirements.

Background

According to the Digital Agenda for Europe one of the action areas is the sustainable healthcare and ICT-based support for dignified and independent living. The Digital Agenda for Lithuania (2014-2020) states currently a lack of modern health-related electronic services and ICT products in Lithuania and importance to introduce ICT in the national healthcare system. Most educational institutions in Lithuania haven't any health information system (HIS) learning subjects in their curricula.
