ASSIGNMENT QUESTION

Please read the context and then complete the tasks.

CONTEXT

Duke Global Health Institute (2016) asserts that;

At the heart of Innovations in Healthcare is its network of 50 innovators from around the world working to expand access to affordable, quality healthcare. Every year, the organization identifies and recruits entrepreneurs with promising models of healthcare to apply to join its network as innovators. Through a highly competitive process, it then selects the best organizations to join. It helps connect these innovators with opportunities, information, and contacts they need to scale up their work.”

A perceived fear of using online health consultations is that personal data may not be secured. However, Dr. Thom is an innovative App that has robust data security features and therefore can facilitate medical and other healthcare consultations via an online process.

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

Your answers to assignment tasks will be assessed against the module learning outcomes indicated; LO1 or LO2 with reference to ARU level 5 marking criteria in Table 1.

Table 1: ARU level 5 marking criteria

Level 5 reflects continuing development from Level 4. At this level, students are not fully autonomous but are able to take responsibility for their own learning with some direction. Students are expected to locate an increasingly detailed theoretical knowledge of the discipline within a more general intellectual context, and to demonstrate this through forms of expression which go beyond the merely descriptive or imitative. Students are expected to demonstrate analytical competence in terms both of problem identification and resolution, and to develop their skill sets as required.
