Shared Care Plans Hackathon

19th August

This free one-day hackathon is for anyone wishing to test and develop interoperable connections to improve the flow of care plan information

INTEROPen is joining forces with the OneLondon programme to offer a one-day opportunity to test and develop capabilities and tools that will support the flow of care plan information across health and social care.

The hackathon will take place on 19 August with a post-hack presentation session on the afternoon of 24 August 2021.

The purpose of the Hackathon is to enable any interested suppliers to test interoperability, access third-party APIs, and develop potential solutions to meet the use cases for shared care planning.

Though open to all interested suppliers, connections demonstrated as part of this event may be used by those suppliers who are submitting tenders in response to the South West London Clinical Commissioning Group procurement of a Dynamic Integrated Care Plan. This procurement is being conducted as a competition eligible to suppliers registered to the London Procurement Partnership Dynamic Procurement System. Suppliers participating in the competition may choose to use their hackathon results at the interview stage to demonstrate their ability to provide the necessary interoperability to deliver against the use cases.


– to enable single sign-on, user authentication, and role-based access rights in order for users to view or edit care plans without the need for a separate login to their usual EPRs, London HIEs, and/or the NHS App

– to allow the launch of care plans in the context of patient records displayed in local EPR systems as well as through searching post system launch

– to surface information captured in other records (including personal health records) in care plans as part of the care planning process and, where required, written back into host EPRs (including integration with the NHS App)

– to reduce duplicate data entry/manual transcription and save clinical time due to the use of information already documented in other sources

– to display information in a format appropriate for different user roles, particularly the ability to display care plans in a different format/order for care plan creators (pro-active care provision) vs. care plan consumers (reactive service provision) such as the ambulance service, 111 and A&Es. To make the display clear and simple, mobile-optimised, and has the ability to display prompts/guidance to users relating to each data field.
