Digital technologies have an enormous impact on individual health and society’s well-being. New digital solutions and services are needed for better personalisation, prevention and improved patient care to better respond to the future challenges of rapidly changing health care delivery. How can we better prepare for the challenges that occur with any kind of change? Can we prevent some of the struggles that occur before, during or after the change?
During the programme, we will explore how to support the transition and build a bridge between the old and new realities in the healthcare field and the interaction between healthcare research, education, and business. Based on real-life use-cases that focus on the prevention of change related challenges, participants will develop products or services for improved health systems in order to make them more efficient, accessible and value-providing.
In 2 weeks, the teams will have developed real-life prototypes for solutions that tackle some of the most burning problems in the field. Participants will have a first-hand experience of how innovation works in the unique market of healthcare. Ideas generated during the summer school may also inspire partner organisations to pursue further development towards products and services.
As the program has a focus on business innovation and entrepreneurship, there is no need to have specific technical background to join our Summer School.
Local healthcare institutions will contribute business cases to give a starting point for the idea development. Representatives of medical centres and institutions, insurance, doctors, and nurses will be supervising the participants' work and contribute their expertise.
The summer school will be organised by Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech).
Accommodation can be provided by the TalTech campus located close to the Summer School: https://www.academichostel.com/en/. By submitting the promocode 'eitdigital' the price for the twin-room is reduced to 32 EUR per night.
Local school organisers will provide you with all support and info you may need.
