The Online Course for Basic Digital Competence in Healthcare

Since 2012, the Bavarian TelemedAlliance (BTA) has been engaged in education and knowledge dissemination in the areas of health telematics, eHealth, and telemedicine. Its goal is to increase acceptance and knowledge of these topics so that everyone can benefit from the diverse potentials of digitalization in healthcare. To achieve this, the BTA also relies on specific continuing education and training opportunities.

Do you want to expand your knowledge in the field of healthcare? Digitalization is increasingly making its way into the fields of health, medicine, and nursing. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important for all stakeholders in these fields as well as for patients and all interested population groups to have the necessary knowledge. This is imparted by the online course “Digital Health Course.”

Relevant topics include: eHealth, telemedicine, telematics infrastructure, ePatient record, digital health applications, health apps, eMedication plan, ePrescription, robotics, big data, artificial intelligence, AAL, and much more.

The content is structured in a way that makes it easy for laypeople to understand, thereby creating a basic terminological understanding of telemedical elements.


In a total of 12 teaching units, the theoretical foundations, applications, implementations, and the project landscape of the digitalization of healthcare provision are presented in detail.

  • eLearning course (required: PC, laptop, or tablet PC and internet connection)
