The d-HealthyLife project developed 3 training modules for digital health developers, with a number of practical applications forseen:
- Co-creation processes
- Motivation and behaviour change
- Innovative business models
The modules were deployed in different pilot training course editions of 3-days, 1.5-days and half-day format:
- Barcelona, September 12-14th
- Brussels, October 3-5th
- Barcelona, October 17th (Game Jam)
- Barcelona, December 13-14th
The 3-day pilot trainings started with a common topic on “Co-creation Processes in Digital Health”; after this, participants attended the module of their preference (specified in advance) between the training topics “Motivation and Behaviour Change in Digital Health” and “Innovative Business Models in Digital Health”. Those interested in training in all 3 topics continued for a third day.
For the 1.5-days and half-day format, the training was developed as an on-going process through group dynamics, working directly on the development and market placement of a d-health solution.
In addition to the interactive learning activities in these topics, the pilots also included specific networking opportunities to meet and engage with other professionals working in Digital Health from multiple sectors and backgrounds.
The d-HealthyLife pilot courses are branded as EIT Health Campus activities, with an estimated value of 900€. Participants in the pilot courses in September, October and November were able to attend free of charge. Lunch and coffee breaks during the training days were covered by the organisation, but participants were required to arrange and pay for their own travel and accommodation, including any visa arrangements.
Our targeted learner profiles include individual and small and big company-affiliated digital health developers, health project managers and entrepreneurs. Ideal trainee candidates have proven academic and/or professional track record in Digital Health, in particular mHealth development, and are familiar with the basics of the user-centred design approach.
