In the Bulgarian academic environment, this is unique online program in eHealth program as a concept and realization, in the form of a modern interdisciplinary solution, which carries the markings of the contemporary Internet concepts for education in informatics, medicine and health sciences. The training is based on the fundamental information / informatics principles for processes management, phenomena and activities in the field with high-tech processing and applications of polyvalent information in the healthcare portfolio, from selected locations and at selected time.
As in other specialized fields, the evolution of the term is related to the concepts of initial powerful technology and information processing, but today the emphasis is placed on the interpretation techniques - integration between algorithmic and programmatic and human / expert participations is sought. The most important is the understanding and explanation of medical manifestations and clinical conditions that have proven genetic (biological, hereditary) origin.
The science of medical informatics, as a theoretical basis of e-learning, provides knowledge and realization of applications of computer science and information technologies in the field of health and medicine. In the concept of training are joined three professional fields - Healthcare and Medicine, Telecommunications and Administration and Management.
They organize the didactic tools and additional electronic materials and resources in the relevant areas: algorithms, databases and information systems, web technologies, artificial intelligence and information theories, software engineering, data mining, image processing, modeling and simulation, statistics for generating new knowledge from biology and medicine, project management, standards and regulations, as well as improving and discovering new computer health models.
The program graduates are primarily oriented towards the information that ICT in all their modalities and variants can provide to support the generation, development and deployment of products such as knowledge, medical culture, health and healthcare policy and management
eHealth professionals have fundamental competencies in determining the requirements for specialized medical software whose activity is directed to the design and implementation of such systems.
