Digital Health Rewired HACK DAYS
Hi OHHers - I’m running a 2-day hack next year, alongside the Digital Health Rewired event. If it’s anything like the Digital Health Summer School hackathon we ran earlier in 2018 it’ll be a great 2 days of collaboration, learning, and building tech.
Part of the event will be a ‘traditional’ hackathon event, starting with idea pitches and then hacking on ideas, building ‘proof of concept’ prototypes, and experimenting with new technologies and concepts.
Around this I will have a number of demonstration slots going on, something like a workshop or tutorial on particular healthcare technologies - with small groups (4-6) and hands-on learning (ie writing code on your laptop, not powerpoint and theory) - I’ve decided to call them ‘Hackshops’ - where you can learn a new skill such as integrating with a FHIR server, or building an NHS user interface…
Here’s a list of some of the hackshop contributions we’re expecting at the 2019 hackathon.
the openEHR Foundation - with a simple tutorial on how to interact with an openEHR repository like EtherCIS, through its REST API
NHS Digital’s GP Connect team - demoing their API for obtaining patient GP records from consumer systems
The NHS Spine team - with an open-access Spine test environment for learning to integrate with the basic NHS Spine services
We’re hoping to add more demos and hackshops here, and if you would like to run a hackshop then please PM me @pacharanero and we can arrange it.
[ We can’t guarantee you would be able to get around all the available hackshops - there might be limits on how many people can attend any given hackshop. It’ll be first come first served on the day, and a ‘teach-each-other’ ethos. Share the knowledge! ]
Date: March 25th-26th 2019
Venues: Novotel London West (moving across to the main venue at Olympia for the hackday presentations)
