DataCamp: Data Literacy Learning Platform

At all levels of AHS, people use data, expertise, and evidence to inform decisions and improve outcomes for patients, populations, and the health system. Data and Analytics (DnA) is excited to offer an easy to use, self-directed, low pressure, data literacy learning platform (DataCamp) to help everyday users feel comfortable working with, accessing, understanding, and communicating data. 

DataCamp makes it easy for everyone to learn new skills specific to their role – gain confidence in interpreting data, join tables in SQL, or automate processes using Python. From data concepts to coding, all training is interactive and simple to start using. There is no installation as all learning takes place in your browser, where you will have the opportunity to follow expert-led courses, complete bite-sized exercises, and receive real-time feedback. DataCamp will help us as we adopt new cloud technologies and refresh existing skills (Snowflake, Python, SQL, Tableau, Alteryx, R, and more). This online platform is free and is intended for frontline managers, leaders and physicians who use data on a daily basis; it is now available, through to the end of October 2024.
