A new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is available to support NSW Health staff harness clinical health data for better patient care.

NSW Health, through eHealth and HETI, have partnered with the University of Sydney and the Digital Health Cooperative Research Centre to deliver a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to support NSW Health staff harness clinical health data for better patient care.

The new MOOC explores how clinical practice is being transformed by the tremendous potential offered by growing pools of data captured in digital systems such as the electronic medical record (eMR) and the Electronic Record for Intensive Care (eRIC).

It demonstrates the emerging role of data in decision-making, evidence-based practice and quality patient care, and explains key concepts of working with data in a health setting and common activities throughout the data lifecycle.

Available on My Health Learning, the MOOC titled ‘Using clinical health data, information and knowledge for better healthcare’ comprises more than 30 videos and associated learning resources.

It provides an engaging 12 to 25 hour self-directed learning experience that can be completed over four to five weeks.

The course has been published in My Health Learning, and is also freely available via the online learning platform Coursera, with learners having the option to purchase a certificate of completion.
