HANDI, the Healthcare App Network for Development and Innovation, is a group of clinicians, developers, informaticians and others who believe that agile healthcare apps for patients, carers and health and care professionals provide the key to enabling IT to transform of health and care.
It wants to encourage and support app innovators. HANDI knows from experience that creating an app and getting it widely used can be a painful experience and have established HANDI as a not-for-profit venture to provide mutual support and help create an environment in which apps can flourish and wants to invite you to join them.
HANDI is an open and inclusive organisation that supports all with an interest in health and care apps including patients, careers, health and care professionals, developers and those with tools and services to support the app community.
The workshop was the launch event around which we hope to build an active midlands local cluster. Delegates were be able to learn about the opportunities for apps in health and care hear about the challenges and some of the solutions and had the chance to network with emerging and established app innovators and others with resources and expertise to help make good ideas a reality.
HANDI has also run a successful workshop in Newcastle (see the web site for its outputs) and has another planned for London on 30th May – Book now open via the web site
