An exciting development that we would like to support is the plan to have an NHS Hackday in London on 26-27th of May 2012 @ University of London Union, Malet Street, WC1E 7HY

What is a Hackday?

Hackdays originated in the open source software movement as a technique to advance the development of open source code for benefit of us all, i.e. for the “Commons”.

These techniques have been adopted by other movements for the Commons, including ourselves at the Digital Health Conference and Hack, as we aim to improve the health commons.

The aim is to accomplish this through the development of disruptive innovation- ideas that are radical solutions to the issues we face in the NHS and in health and social care,

When is the NHS Hackday?

What are people saying about the NHS Hackday?

Using a fabulous Tweet aggregator developed by @Dean_Jenkins, I am able to survey recent Tweets and collate a record of them. I intend to do this on a weekly basis to aggregate Tweets for #NHSHackday and for #digihealthcon or #dhc12, and host the results here as a resource.

I would suggest that all of the people involved in this movement would be excellent choices to follow on Twitter. If you use a Tweet aggregator such as Tweetdeck or Hootsuite, you could run a search under the #NHSHackday to pick up on every development as it happens.

If this idea interests you, during the weekend of the #NHSHackday, there may be opportunities to engage online if you cannot get there in person.
