|1||Max (Wylde) Burkeemail@example.com||@MaxWyldeThing||"A caregiver built with you in mind"||In a world where smart technology is common practice, why do service users still rely on technology that often seems impersonal and embarrassing? It's time smart technology was used to make all service users and services more reliable and relatable. Let's put the power back in the users hands.||Yes||Yes||Get in touch if you have any further questions.|
|2||Sam Winwardfirstname.lastname@example.org||@samwinward||banish the bleep||I am a junior doctor – say I’m taking blood/explaining a diagnosis to a patient/updating a family and off goes my bleep. I have two choices – stop what I’m doing and run to the phone to answer it, or leave the caller waiting and hope they’re still there when I’m finished. Both options are bad options. Do I need to interrupt my conversation to find out bed 9’s drug chart needs rewriting for tomorrow? With a bleep you never know, but most things can wait until your conversation finishes. The problem is the caller may not be there, and if they are, they’ve sat waiting by the phone unable to contribute to clinical tasks. Why are we still using this outdated technology? They are by far the most inefficient aspect of my day-to-day life. |
Instead of this inherent inefficiency, can we streamline the process using today’s technology to provide an updating list of jobs with improved handover and more emphasis on clinical need that is shared with all. I think this can improve doctors’ work flow, healthcare professional communications and ultimately patient care.
|4||Wai Keongemail@example.com||@wai2k||Better Blood Results||Blood results generate a lot of data and as doctors we constantly need to monitor them and derive insights to treat patients. But at the moment, the way we view these pieces of information is poor, prone to error, and more important we can miss important pieces of data that impacts on patient care. 10000 data points per patient|
|5||Devon Buchananfirstname.lastname@example.org||British medical English spelling dictionary||When I write about medicine on my computer it underlines a lot of the technical words I use with red squiggly lines and suggests silly corrections. This is because computers don't have medical English spelling dictionaries installed. The ones which already exists are difficult to install, and use American English. Therefore I'd like to create at the hack day a British medical English spelling dictionary which is easy to install.||yes||yes|
|6||Adhiraj Joglekaremail@example.com||n/a||CAMHS Inpatient Bed Finder||CAMHS beds are in huge demand. We have no real time data of vacant beds in region or country. We phone around and fax NHSE application forms to each unit. We will benefit from online real time bed availability and form which can be sent to selected units wih a single click securely.||yes||Yes||Outline of the workflow can be downlaodd from here -|
|7||Tom Doelfirstname.lastname@example.org||@tomdoel||Daily Pollute||High air pollution makes headlines, but even at "safe" levels, long-term exposure can have major health impacts. How can we give people tools to better understand and manage their exposure risk? We could build a smartphone app that collates their personal pollution exposure over time using open data for air quality. Personal geographic exposure hotspots could be highlighted. How would the individual use this information? Would this be useful for clinical management of respiratory conditions? Can increasing awareness of localised pollution hotspots push government bodies to improve air quality? I would love to work with clinicians, developers, researchers and anyone with interesting ideas!||yes||yes|

|10||Liz Feltonfirstname.lastname@example.org||@TheHomelyCoder||Help to Help Ourselves||Start with a severe shortage of specialist, psychiatric staff. Add in a cup of poor access, a strain on resources, and a pinch of self-help guides (heat to antiquated Comic Sans font and fax to your GP), and bake until a mental health crisis hits. Psychiatric staff know what helps, but time and resource constraints often make them powerless to deliver it until it is too late. Online mental health services have entirely disappeared, due to funding issues and poor optimization for the modern web. But the gap can be filled.||Yes||Yes||I brainstormed with my CPN prior to NHSHD. Consequently, I have a list of "oh my God wouldn't it be cool if -" requirements (she was very excited by the prospect). Open to delivery suggestions, and any further input from psych professionals :)|
|11||Chris Symeonemail@example.com||@chris_sym||Neuropsych mobile intervention||Patients with neuropsychiatric disorders can be severely disabled by symptoms, but they often have to wait >1 year for admission to specialist units in the UK. There is zero input from specialists whilst they wait for this – so they suffer unnecessarily with symptoms. In an ideal world, an app could be created to begin the process of education, monitor their symptoms and deliver a self-help type plan using CBT approaches to help the improve symptoms.||Yes||Yes|
|12||Carys Morganfirstname.lastname@example.org||Online Patient Feedback||Are there alternatives to current mechanisms for 'tripadvisor style' online patient feedback or engagement that would allow healthcare providers respond to patients and act on concerns. What could these look like and how could they be used to improve patient care?||Yes||Yes|
|13||Sam Kleeman||Samkleeman1@gmail.com||@samkleeman1||Open Trials||Despite the ever increasing importance of evidence-based medicine, access to good up-to-date evidence has got no easier. ClinicalTrials.Gov is an open portal that contains almost every clinical trial reported since 2008. Just like Ben Goldacre's Open Prescribing made sense of complex CCG prescribing data, can we use this data (and others) to do something useful?||Yes||Yes|

|17||Cyrus Razavifirstname.lastname@example.org||@DrTechnophile||Simulation Cast||Simulation training is an integral part of making sure clinicians are prepared to treat critical and rare conditions. They test your ability to think under pressure and work as a team. It is usually done in person but in this day and age, it is difficult to get everyone together at the same time to run a simulation. It would be great to have a virtual environment where you could web cast simulation sessions.||Yes||Yes|
|18||Abhishek Karaleemail@example.com||@KaraleAbhishek||TIMELINE for Medic Training||Problem: I want to know the training course for medical professionals and all the specialty training options available to me as a student. I want this all in one location ideally without having to google around (so lazy). The public needs increased awarness of what a 'junior doctor' is and how their medical professionals are trained. A* Solution: an interactive timeline (website) which lays the course from GCSE to medical school to consultant and beyond.||Yes||Yes|
|19||Keith Grimesfirstname.lastname@example.org||@keithgrimes||Virtual Analgesia||Virtual Reality has been promising a great deal for a long time. Despite much hype, the first wave of consumer VR in the early 1990s was a great disappointment. VR did not die though, and despite quietly growing in research and industry, it has taken the appearance of Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard to fire up our hopes and dreams again. I hope to find a way of exploring and delivering patient benefit using VR with 'Virtual Analgesia'. I'm looking for a team to help build one of two projects: a 360 video viewing app that allows for a selection of pre-existing content to be chosen and stored on a mobile device and viewed with a customisable orientation for use as distraction during painful or anxiety-provoking procedures; or a 'Mirror Box' intact body simulation, which could be used to treat phantom limb pain in amputees.||yes||yes (i'll film it myself with my 360 camera)||I'll bring Samsung Gear VR, Ricoh Theta S 360 camera, 2 amazon dash buttons (because why not?) and the promise to have the final project in front of patients next week.|
|20||Michael Marksemail@example.com||Outbreak Patient Management System||During the ebola outbreak patient notes couldnt be taken out of the room because of the strict infection control regulations. THis made delivering care difficult and capturing research data challenging. Yet most outbreaks occur in places with minimal infrastructure and where infection control is fundamental. We need better tools which can be deployed rapidly to sites with no IT infrastructure. Ideally this would be a patient managment tool that can be used both to capture clinical data to improve care whilst generating research usable data.||Yes||yes||We have some tablets and a raspberry pi to play with....|
|21||Calum Eadiefirstname.lastname@example.org||Helping healthcare managers make service decisions||As a healthcare manager, how do you compare service design decisions?|
1. Do nothing. Don't take any risks.
2. Do what other people have done.
3. Do anything and see what happens.
What if you could test out an improvement without spending money on it?
Could tech be used to simulate service changes?
Can we make simulation tools that are much cheaper and easier to use than heavy duty tools like Simul8.
Is there a sweet spot of usability and effectiveness for certain service design decisions?
- Healthcare managers / clinicians to help figure out if there's a real problem here
