Digital Health | Harvard University

Millions of health-related data points are captured every day, from individual-level information collected by our personal devices and tests at the doctor's office to population-level data about disease prevalence and treatment outcomes. Digital technologies have transformed how we buy and listen to music and how we plan our travel. Can health care be next? 

Throughout this online course, you’ll take part in a fictional hackathon, working alongside other learners to determine which digital tools to invest in. With the help of real-world case studies and protagonists, you will become the judge and evaluate how well the hackathon competitors fit the needs of patients, physicians, payers, and, ultimately, future health care ecosystems. In doing so, you’ll consider the impact digital tools have on patients, providers, and payers to understand how data tracking and digital technologies can improve patient care, enhance communications between doctors and patients, increase employee benefits and happiness, and share data to track health trends and develop solutions.

Can you transform health care with the touch of a mouse?
