Miscellanea This module communicates the fundamentals of IT-driven innovations in eHealth. Upon the successful completion of this module, students have a basic understanding for the possibilities of IT-driven innovations in international healthcare markets. Students will be introduced with the cornerstones of healthcare markets (history, financial models, regulation, stakeholder) as a fundamental basis for developing appropriate areas for improvement. Furthermore, students gain a fundamental understanding of the use of information technology in the area of health care provider and the associated resistance against technology ("Technology Resistance"). Thus, students obtain the ability to analyze success and failure factors of eHealth applications.

The students will:
- understand the specifics of different healthcare systems and the impact on introducting innovation and reforms
- be aware of current trends & directions with respect to IT / innovation in healthcare markets for different stakeholders and on a national level
- be able to discuss and apply models for user resistance and their effect on national eHealth programs
- obtain an understanding on privacy and security issues within eHealth implementation programs
- be able to apply the expertise with a team of students to a specific problem
