Abstract
Advantages of digitalization are understood, but implementation to healthcare is slow. Cost savings and quality improvements are needed in healthcare. Continuous education of healthcare professionals is essential for quality, and digital education (DE) enables that cost-efficiently. The aim was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of a DE for wound care by comparing it to lecture education (LE). DE enabled a slightly better learning outcome than LE. However, combination resulted in superior outcome. DE provided best cost-effectiveness.
