Studies

The goal of the Master's program in Digital Health Management at MSB is to train a qualified healthcare professional with in-demand interface knowledge for the integration and networking of medical data. Graduates of Digital Health Management understand and shape the digitalization of both products and services in the healthcare industry. They acquire the necessary skills and knowledge in the field of sensors, computer science, and the statistics of large data sets (“big data”) and are able to create basic software applications (e.g. small apps) themselves and understand, explain, and evaluate more complex digital applications.

Their technical competence is supplemented by knowledge of the economic and legal environment of digitalization in the healthcare sector. Therefore, as a graduate, you are familiar with the essential regulatory framework conditions and the peculiarities of the national healthcare system and European health systems. The medical competencies imparted enable you to understand diseases and know the potential need for patient care and digital improvement.

Study content

Building on a first academic degree with a focus on health or economics, the Master's program further internalizes scientific concepts and critically reflects and evaluates them in the context of various occupational fields. You can also apply the insights to new and unfamiliar situations in business practice and deepen your knowledge and skills independently.

You gradually develop a holistic view of the individual areas of value creation in the healthcare industry. You are able to collect, evaluate, interpret, and integrate relevant information in complex initial situations. You also develop communication skills to be able to exchange with experts in the scientific community as well as with professional practitioners.

The Master's program in Digital Health Management is determined overall by four competence fields, which you will find presented in detail in the module overview:

  • General subject competence
  • Specific subject competence
  • Occupation-related action competence
  • Methods and social competence

In the practical and theoretical modules, aspiring Digital Health Managers are comprehensively prepared for the various fields of activity in the digitalization of the healthcare system. In the area of general subject competence, special, building economic competencies are conveyed.

In the context of specific subject competencies, topics are treated in depth in the context of the healthcare industry and with a view to industry-specific actions.

In the competence field of occupation-related action competence, you can apply your knowledge to a variety of occupational fields to novel and unusual questions of a company and master the concepts and tools necessary for this.

Career

The federal government wants to embark on a digitalization offensive - and the Berlin metropolitan area is to be strengthened in particular. The plan is to develop the capital region into a model region for digitalization in the healthcare sector. From 2020, Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) wants to test the use of selected digital applications, such as health apps, in practice in Berlin and the surrounding area - before they are rolled out across Germany. Spahn: "Germany can become a driver of innovation in digital health. We just have to dare to." The model project "Future Region Digital Health" is to have a central anchorage in Berlin/Brandenburg.

Digital health managers can mediate at the interface of product and healthcare system and help digital applications gain market access. Possible areas of application and fields of work include:

  • Medical technology companies
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Software companies (app developers)
  • Statutory health insurance and private health insurance companies
  • Hospitals, outpatient healthcare facilities and nursing homes
  • Public/state institutions (authorities, associations)
