It was great to catch up with some of the #HANDIhealth community in a Tweetchat on Thursday 31st May, where we discussed the recent and hugely successful #NHShackday.

We asked where to next with this form of innovation, and wondered, has the time now come for our new style of innovation to be brought into the mainstream of service design in our health services?

@HANDIhealth Who do we have here tonight, say hi #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:03:43 +0100)
@HANDIhealth Sounds like the first #NHShackday was an overwhelming success and seems to be getting some good press #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:05:15 +0100)
@dunmailh Hi! Dunmail from @BlackPearSw here – interested to hear what happened at #nhshackday #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:05:33 +0100)
@HANDIhealth Hi @dunmailh welcome. #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:06:17 +0100)
@HANDIhealth I think that it demonstrated what small agile self organising teams can achieve #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:07:20 +0100)
@BlackPearSw Hi all, Tiff from @BlackPearSw also here. #handihealth #Handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:07:44 +0100)
@dunmailh Sounds good – was there a good mix of clinicians and devs? #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:10:13 +0100)
@HANDIhealth @claireOT did you attend the #nhshackday ?
#handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:10:32 +0100)
@mrcthompson Hopefully the #nhshackday will get the attention of the decision makers and show that this is a better model #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:12:17 +0100)
@HANDIhealth @dunmailh , there are other #nhshackdays planned for Liverpool and Oxford #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:13:49 +0100)
@dunmailh @HANDIhealth We’re waiting for Newcastle or Edinburgh! 🙂 #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:15:10 +0100)
@HANDIhealth Yes me too! Would be great to get these hackdays all over #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:16:06 +0100)
@HANDIhealth Did you see any of the submissions? OpenBNF looks interesting http://t.co/EmEqjbxB #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:16:30 +0100)
@claireOT @HANDIhealth ‘fraid not, but watched online with great interest, especially to pick up tips for the #digihealthhack ! #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:17:03 +0100)
@dunmailh @mrcthompson Do you think we’ll need some ‘big’ projects to build infrastructure to underpin ‘hacker’ projects? #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:17:27 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon Hi @HANDIhealth this is the #Digihealthcon and #digihealthhack account, run by @claireOT , checking in! #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:17:57 +0100)
@vgul RT @HANDIhealth : Did you see any of the submissions? OpenBNF looks interesting http://t.co/EmEqjbxB #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:18:22 +0100)
@BlackPearSw @claireOT According to the wiki for #nhshackdays , Ewan Davis @WoodcoteEwan was there: http://t.co/zTHMaRT8 #Handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:18:29 +0100)
@mrcthompson @dunmailh I’m not so sure. Some of the smaller projects can still get noticed if you can demonstrate value in 2 days #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:19:14 +0100)
@HANDIhealth With these hackdays getting more attention, I wonder if there is a danger that they will become more formalised #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:19:47 +0100)
@claireOT @BlackPearSw thanks! Yes, I met @woodcoteewan at the #handihealth workshop yesterday in London *waves* @HANDIhealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:19:49 +0100)
@mrcthompson I think part of the beauty of these hack days is that they’re voluntary – so you get passionate people involved. #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:22:44 +0100)
@dunmailh @mrcthompson It’s definitely a great platform to test ideas and innovate. Trying to work out how it scales to the real world. #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:24:19 +0100)
@dunmailh @mrcthompson Have you had any joy in getting ideas adopted after proving the concepts? #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:25:17 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon hiya @dunmailh and Tiff! @blackpearsw have you been to a #handihealth event yet?(Thu, 31 May 2012 20:27:44 +0100)
@HANDIhealth @DigiHealthCon what is the difference between the #digihealthhack and #nhshackday – will it be the same format? #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:27:56 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon ? @mrcthompson : Hopefully the #nhshackday will get the attention of the decision makers and show that this is a better model #handihealth ? !!(Thu, 31 May 2012 20:28:10 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @mrcthompson certainly this model can produce great results very efficiently! #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:28:47 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @mrcthompson you can still register for the #digihealthhack in Leeds, 30th June, see http://t.co/o5MgFkAp @dunmailh #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:29:51 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @HANDIhealth no, there are some differences. #nhshackday was very clearly for open source dev of ideas for use in the nhs #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:30:36 +0100)
@mrcthompson @DigiHealthCon my concern is that it becomes formalised? “red-taped” I think that it works well because its informal and agile #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:31:41 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @HANDIhealth but we will have a coding work stream at the #digihealthhack for anyone wishing to work in this way #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:31:48 +0100)
@mrcthompson @DigiHealthCon @dunmailh I think I will do that, I’m at NTI that week anyway so might stay and extra day 🙂 #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:32:17 +0100)
@BlackPearSw @DigiHealthCon @dunmailh Yes, we went to the Newcastle event – found it really productive #Handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:32:22 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @mrcthompson absolutely! But communities built around these days, like #nhshackday , #handihealth or #digihealthhack can work outside formal(Thu, 31 May 2012 20:32:53 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @mrcthompson yay! The #digihealthhack is at OBH, and @lindabroughton of NTI is involved #handihealth #smallworld @dunmailh (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:34:14 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @BlackPearSw yes, I ( @claireot ) was at the London workshop yesterday #handihealth @dunmailh (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:35:06 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @mrcthompson if you want to come to the #Digihealthcon the day before, it will include work on the successor to #mapsandapps #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:36:21 +0100)
@mrcthompson @DigiHealthCon It fills ME with dread to think of a hack day with Prince2 project management O_o #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:36:29 +0100)
@HANDIhealth RT @griffglen : There will be tons of hack days – each university dept around UK is likely not to want to miss out #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:36:56 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @mrcthompson and a workshop by @HANDIhealth too! #handihealth #digihealthcon http://t.co/nshRG7IQ (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:37:06 +0100)
@dunmailh @mrcthompson Guess we need to get @NetworkLouIse to organise a hack day for the NE! #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:37:12 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon By the way, @HANDIhealth folks, if you want to come to the #Digihealthcon , email me- subsidised “scholarship” ticket at �70 #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:38:30 +0100)
@mrcthompson RT @dunmailh : @mrcthompson Guess we need to get @NetworkLouIse to organise a hack day for the NE! #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:38:33 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @griffglen @mrcthompson yes- let’s share the madness! And grow the community, the more the better! #handihealth #digihealthhack (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:39:19 +0100)
@HANDIhealth So what now for the projects that were submitted to the #nhshackday ? #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:40:08 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon I never want young start-up folks to feel � excluded from our events- always worth emailing me if this is you! #handihealth #digihealthhack (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:40:48 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon And of course the #digihealthhack is free to attend, it’s the #Digihealthcon that needs a paid-for ticket #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:41:22 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @HANDIhealth there was a bit of discussion of this on the #nhshackday google group #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:42:03 +0100)
@HANDIhealth the OpenBNF team are taking their app to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain to see how they can collaborate. #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:42:11 +0100)
@BlackPearSw @mrcthompson Prince2?? There’d have to be a change control board just to decide what drink to have in the break. #Handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:42:59 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon RT @mrcthompson : @DigiHealthCon It fills ME with dread to think of a hack day with Prince2 project management O_o #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:44:14 +0100)
@mrcthompson @griffglen @digihealthcon for sure, I agree. But i don’t think that P2 is right for something as agile as a hackday. now SCRUM #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:44:16 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @mrcthompson @griffglen @BlackPearSw did you guys see this? http://t.co/4C9LebDt #handihealth it explains our ideas quite well, I think(Thu, 31 May 2012 20:47:06 +0100)

@WoodcoteEwan #HANDIhealth Facilitated as it happens by HANDI(Thu, 31 May 2012 20:48:59 +0100)
@HANDIhealth Could prototyping be the new policy http://t.co/MeYf5u8p /via @claireOT #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:51:24 +0100)
@HANDIhealth #handihealth Hack Days are about hacking.No formal PM even scrums last days. BUT you do need PM to move to production quality(Thu, 31 May 2012 20:51:24 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon Are any of the #nhshackday crew here tonight? @colinwren @robdykedotcom #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:51:26 +0100)

@WoodcoteEwan #handihealth Well I was there but supporting rather than hacking(Thu, 31 May 2012 20:52:33 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @HANDIhealth I think perhaps the PM could become useful after the #hack , if you want to get the dev. in use? #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:52:54 +0100)
@dunmailh @DigiHealthCon : did you guys see this? http://t.co/QWeZE8yp All of our most successful projects have used prototyping … #Handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:53:51 +0100)
@WoodcoteEwan @DigiHealthCon @HANDIhealth Yes, Good PM is good, but too often becomes end in itself #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:54:33 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @dunmailh yeah, i did see it! Did you see he gave the #digihealthhack a shout out? #soproud #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:55:27 +0100)

@DigiHealthCon @griffglen could you expand a little on that, please? #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:58:01 +0100)
@mrcthompson @woodcoteewan I saw a miconsent tweet but I couldn’t find much more info about the project.. #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:59:44 +0100)
@DigiHealthCon @WoodcoteEwan it looks like a great project- very similar to @idiopathic ‘s Patients Know Best, though? #handihealth @miconsent (Thu, 31 May 2012 20:59:55 +0100)
@WoodcoteEwan @mrcthompson They tell me web site will be up in about a week #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 21:00:45 +0100)

@HANDIhealth I think that we only scratched the surface of Standards last week. Project management has featured a lot tonight also… #handihealth (Thu, 31 May 2012 21:08:34 +0100)
