The Erasmus+ DISH project

DISH at the 3rd Digital Health Society Summit

The 3rd Digital Health Sociaty Summit, organised by ECHAlliance, will take place virtually on November 23rd and 24th 2021.

The Summit, that this year will address the theme “Health Data for Society”, will focus on the acceptance criteria and technical prerequisites for societal trust in the use of health data and the most innovative citizen-controlled data sharing governance models. It will also give the opportunity to showcase pioneering regional initiatives on health data and data sharing and discuss strategies to accelerate investments in ready-to-market data-driven solutions.

On Wednesday 24th November 2021 at 12h CET, Ms Trine Ungermann Fredskild, head of Innovation and Digital Training, Research and Learning Department at the university hospital of Southern Denmark (DK) and Erasmus+ DISH project’s coordinator, will contribute to the panel discussion “Health in working and living environments – what skills and which data do we lack?”.

By establishing triple helix partnerships in the 6 countries involved in the project, consisting of healthcare providers, educational institutions and enterprises, DISH has developed three concepts aimed at facilitating the enhancement of digital skills and innovation readiness. The concepts, namely the Learning Innovation Unit, on the job training and the assessment of skills, are currently implemented and used by the DISH triple helix partners to offer training activities and related products and services.

The insights gained and results achieved during the implementation of the DISH project’s activities will add value to the panel discussion shading light on how professional education and training programs can support bridging the gap between the ongoing digital transformation of the healthcare systems and human adaptability capacity. Digital literacy and continuous education of health and social care professionals in the knowledge, use and application of digital health are mandatory elements to deeply embracing the transformational benefits that innovations in science and technology can bring for patients, staff and healthcare systems.
