HANDI are looking for panel speakers and session facilitators for the HANDI Spring Symposium on Wednesday May in London.

The HANDI Health Apps Spring Symposium builds on the successful event run at EHI Live in November. Again working with EHI The HANDI Spring Symposium will take place at the Royal College of GPs, Euston Square, London on Wednesday 14th  May.

The symposium will provide an opportunity for the audience to discuss issues of concern to health and care app developers amongst themselves and with leading experts. Each session will consist of brief (5 minute) presentations from a panel of  three leading experts and practitioners after which the audience will be able to ask questions and make their own contribution which we hope will lead to a lively and informative discussion.

The sessions will be cover the following issues:

  • Finance, business models and startups
  • Quality assurance, safety and regulation
  • Informatics standards and interoperability
  • Tech and tools for app developers
  • User centred design
  • Digital Mental health and Wellbeing
  • Open source apps
  • UI, UX and information design

Were looking for experts and those currently struggling with the issues above who are willing to share their expertise and experience as well as a facilitator for each theme.

If you think you can help, or want to propose alternative themes please email ewan@handihealth.org outlining your interest

London Connect have been running a project to build a community of interest in London around patient health record access which HANDI have been happy to support.

We just be asked to include the report from the public event they held on a snowy January Saturday at the Wellcome Collection in London.

You will find the report here along with other material from the work of the community over the past few months.  It makes fascinating reading about public attitudes to and hopes for record access and digital engagement in health and is a "must read" for all interested in the area.

We are actively working with London Connect about how HANDI can help to continue to support this community of practice through our London Cluster. If you like to know more or get involved please contact lon@handihealth.org
