Teaching Methods

Presentation of the concepts, principles and fundamental techniques.
Examples of real situations to illustrate the practical interest of the techniques and its application to real cases.
Practical classes (2 hours per week)
Practical problems addressing the theoretical concepts, analysis and implementation.

Learning Outcomes

To provide the students with the main concepts and technologies to build and integrate information and decision support systems for clinical applications. Namely, the goal is to teach the main clinical informatics protocols and approaches for clinical systems, architectures and technologies for telemedical health solutions (namely
for pHealth systems) and diagnosis algorithms applicable for clinical decision support.
The course will contribute to the acquisition of the following competences:
Instrumental:
• Analysis and synthesis of complex problems;
• Problem solving, namely in the area of Medical Informatics.
Personal:
• Team work;
• Critical reasoning.
Systematic:
• Self-learning
• Research.
