INTEROPen presents: OneLondon Hackathon

27th June 2019


This FREE* event provides an opportunity for members of the INTEROPen community to learn from the recent successes of the One London LHCRE and help ‘hack’ towards resolving outstanding challenges facing this and other LCHRE areas – testing the scalability of solutions that will connect care providers across health and social care.

On the day of the hackathon, we will be focusing on solutions to each of the following three challenges:

  • The bidirectional sharing of information from PHR
  • The interconnectivity of the National Record Locator
  • Enabling connectivity with other LHCRE areas (namely Yorkshire and Humberside)

Hackathon participants will have the day to ‘hack’ and solve both architectural and technological connectivity hurdles, with the opportunity to produce first of type connections that we will seek to scale for the pan-London LHCRE programme.

We will be using CareConnect FHIR resources curated by the INTEROPen community. These resources make it possible for us to further standardise and share data through APIs, which will support this development and deployment. London Chief Clinical Information Officers will be on hand to help vendors to sense-check examples for real-world use.

In keeping with INTEROPen values, vendors from across the community are invited to attend both planning WebExes and the hackathon event. Information will be shared through these WebExes and on the Ryver collaboration platform to set out the scope and agenda for the hackathon, and to provide participants with the information to commence their architectural plans.

08:30 – 16:00 – Set up, presentations and Hackathon (including lunch & refreshments)
