There is considerable evidence of substantial current and projected need for clinical and management staff in hospitals and other health services to upskill in the areas of health data analytics and in the applications of digital health technologies. There is also a very urgent need for currently practising health professionals and managers to upskill in digital health and analytics in order to work effectively and safely in the clinical digital health arena. The Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Analytics (HCHCA) provides specialised introductory knowledge and skills for individuals working in the area of health data analytics, and for those who wish to enter this field or who wish to upskill.
