COURSE PRESENTATION
This course aims to train health professionals to implement projects in telehealth and patient telemonitoring, using patient-centred principles.

Participants will understand the basic concepts and technological parts related to telehealth, as also the most relevant issues related to outcomes measurement and data management and security. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment, in a hands-on session, the use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, mobile apps and remote patient monitoring services.
 
During the course, the main challenges for digital innovation in healthcare will be discussed. The discussion will be supported by a journal club and the presentation of three case studies that are being applied in the real context of healthcare.
