Health & Technology

New communication technologies have become essential pieces of our health care system. For example, new technologies can support delivery of health care to rural and remote populations through telemedicine, encourage healthy behaviors through new media campaigns and health-oriented video games, and enhance efficiency in the health care system through electronic medical records. Our courses in new media design and social impacts of media help prepare students to contribute to the effective use of communication technologies to improve health care. We also offer specialized courses in health and technology, and conduct research that guages the effectiveness of communication technology interventions in health care settings.
