Technology in the hospital


Over the course of just a few years, information and communication technology has become the backbone of the Hospital Information System (HIS). It is no longer possible to imagine a hospital having a vision that does not incorporate technologicalgovernance and a technological strategyandvision. It is therefore technology as the driver of change in hospitals which is at the heart of the "ITMED ExecutiveMaster's degree",and the ability to understand the systemic, technical and functional aspects of such technology.


It's worth spending some time on this question! In the course of its three years of existence, the "Digital Patient" Community has put several hundred healthcare professionals - whether from technological, managerial or medical fields - in contact with one another. There is a vast amount of material to be tackled andthe questions asked frequently require a deeper examination or an iterative reflection. This is the spirit of this Executive Master's course which, while making a record of the central questions concerning the evolution of HIS, wishes to open up the way we think about aspects of methodology, standards and good practice, but also about feedback and immersion within the Community's partner institutions and companies.

In practice


The "ITMED Executive Master's degree course" consists of 300 hours of tuition spread over a period of 18 months at a rate of 3 to 4 days per month. The training covers nine distinct areas and part of it will be carried out within the partner hospitals and companies, with Master's students also taking part in the activities of the Digital Patient Community.
