Washington, DC (May 30, 2012) -- TechChange and the mHealth Alliance today announced a four-week online certificate course on mHealth: Mobile Phones for Public Health. This first of its kind global online certificate course will run from November 12 - December 7 and will overlap with the 2012 mHealth Summit in the Washington, DC area.
The Mobile Phones for Public Health course will examine how mobile technologies are revolutionizing approaches to patient management, health education, diagnostics, and logistics. Through case studies, guest expert interviews, multimedia tutorials, interactive exercises, and live demonstrations of tools, participants will explore topics like SMS (text message) communication programs, smartphone applications, and health information systems for data collection and management.
The two organizations have partnered to provide the course based on pervasive interest in the topic of mobile health (mHealth) and the need to develop more skills and exchange of best practices among practitioners in the sector.
