It is a good course on understanding the basics and getting started. The various aspects of Health IT are explained and the talk on health systems was good to understand where Health Informatics lies in the structure.

I went in with very little knowledge of Health Informatics and come out thinking of ways to help in the innovation stages of health Informatics.

I am impressed by this course. The focus is fairly limited so may not be of interest to the broader public but I for one am very interested in the broader adoption of eHealth tools and fully support the initiatives presented in this course.

The course was very insightful and above all innovative in its presentation by incorporating experiences and challenges form real professionals into the course lectures. This gave a very good contextual richness to the materials taught. Thanks to all the professors and PhD students who presented lectures during the course. Sufficient care was taken to present lectures in a way that even students like myself from a different cultural background could easily grasp concepts easily without confusion. The course was well organized! Thanks! Please develop an advanced level to this course offering. It will be great to have an online group for members of this course who plan to continue in eHealth (research, practice, development, etc) to continue to share resources and innovative solutions. We could even collaborate online and develop a universal app!

Very good course on an important subject. Realistic presentation of the issues that arise was most helpful. The references were also helpful. It would have been interesting to have a list of all the countries and where they are (or not) on having a national e-health policy - and maybe where to find it.

Great Course. Excellent presentation of a somewhat dry topic in an interesting way. Strong focus on system wide factors. European/nordic focus but also some international examples. No complaints on the technical aspects or level of language etc. The addition of a peer graded assignment would be an interesting consideration for future courses.

The course was good. Video and text was working Ok. PPT that was showed in the presentation was not given to the student this can be improved. The level of the course was Ok and the people who made the presentation know what they were talking about, good! In some questions it was difficult to know if one or more answers correct, in some places it was stated that more than one answer can be correct but in some not. It could be different groups for different interest to be able to continue discussions after the course. The time to finish each moment in the course could be longer to finish as time is difficult to find. Maybe it should be possible to log in and make the course in summer when people have more time.
