Temos and Deggendorf Institute of Technology launch cooperation
Global accreditation leader, Temos International Healthcare Accreditation (Temos) with its Temos Academy, announces the launch of its scientific collaboration with the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) in the fields of tourism, medical travel, and telemedicine.
Temos and DIT will work together to develop online education and training programs for students, healthcare professionals, and interested stakeholders in English and Spanish. The courses will be accredited by the University with appropriate certificates issued upon completion. By combining Temos’ expertise, knowledge, and experience as an international accreditation organization with the resources, faculty, and facilities of ECRI (European Campus Rottal-Inn), a part of DIT, new programs, course content, and other services will be offered to a global audience.
These two innovative organizations recently launched their first joint initiative: a free, online, on-demand course entitled, “Digital Collaborative Systems in Healthcare”, available to anyone interested in the topic. This course was developed by Anna E. Schmaus-Klughammer (LLB, hons) in cooperation with DIT’s Vice President, Dr. Horst Kunhardt. As a stand-alone course or as preparation for DIT’s Bachelor or Master programs, the 15-hour course is available in English. The Spanish version will be released soon.
Temos CEO, Dr. Claudia Mika explains, “During the COVID-19 pandemic, current and prospective clients experienced an increased demand for telemedicine and teleconsultation services but were faced with uncertainty regarding appropriate regulations and legal requirements for those services. This dilemma led us to develop the first accreditation standards on telemedicine and teleconsultation offered by an international accreditation body. Our team joined with experts at the University Deggendorf that developed an introductory training course on telemedicine and digital collaborative systems in healthcare. It is with great pleasure to announce that we can offer this course complimentary to our partners and we look forward to sharing our practical knowledge of healthcare with students interested in working in the sector”.
