HANDI HOPD (Health Open Platform Demonstrator) was developed to provide a platform to enable clinicians to learn to code and to provide a testing and development environment to build apps. Adopted by NHS England to power the Code4Health platform, with the revived programme having now been launched and the first courses are underway.
One of the first courses took place at Bradford University this week, with course provider LiveCode educating clinicians on how to develop their own apps.
As the programme expands, NHS England will be looking for additional commercial and academic organisations to apply to become accredited Code4Health course providers.
Further Code4Health courses are being held in Bradford and London this month, in Northumbria and Yeovil in April, and in Bolton, Croydon and London in May.
