eHealth (also known as Health Informatics) is defined as “The knowledge, skills and tools which enable information to be collected, managed, used and shared to support the delivery of healthcare and to promote health” (taken from the UK National Health Service). The objective of the program is to produce Masters level graduates with high quality training in the broad interdisciplinary area that eHealth encompasses, emphasizing industry-relevant academic research, development and evaluation.

The program is based on a collaborative partnership among the Faculties of Health Sciences, Engineering and the DeGroote School of Business. It is administered by the DeGroote School of Business. Three Academic Units are major collaborators in the program: the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (Faculty of Health Sciences), the Department of Computing and Software (Faculty of Engineering), and the Information Systems Area in the DeGroote School of Business. Many additional faculty members with eHealth interests from other departments also participate in the program.
