I(nvolve) started working on a project for the NHS Institute last year looking at how new technology can offer opportunities for people to engage in healthcare more effectively. (Think preventative health agenda and Wanless report/s.)
Needless to say, by the time we’d been through all of the research and written the thing up, you could have added so much more to the final document- it looked like things were going out of date – and fast!
As a result we worked with the Institute to make a webspace out of the document with some interactive elements to encourage sharing of ideas amongst NHS staff – you can comment on reccomendations and themes of the report and also upload relevant projects.
The idea is to introduce a more collaborative way of working into the research and dissemination process – which can otherwise be quite a dry and static experience- and to kickstart the process of moving forward with implementation of new tech/health ideas.
Would be great to have some input into the site and some feedback on how to go forward with the ideas behind the project, and of course, please pass on the info to healthcare types.
