There are a lot of brilliant digital apps that have great potential to support health and social care but they face two hurdles that mean many will fail.
- How to get them adopted in the complex and confusing worlds of health care and social care?
- How to get good evidence of the effectiveness of the apps to convince commissioners and others that they would be a good investment?
We have been helping app developers with these critical issues for many years. We have worked with developers as they engage with user communities to get their apps integrated as regular features of health and social care. And we have worked with them to evaluate the impact of the app to provide evidence that will support future implementations.
- There are many different routes to successful adoption but they all involve careful engagement with user communities and their representatives. Planning that engagement can be a key to success.
- There are many forms of evaluation, from quantitative, summative assessments at the end of a roll-out to more qualitative and formative procedures that collect evidence to guide the process of adoption.
What we offer:
If you are considering how to tackle either of these issues we offer a 2-hour online clinic on each to talk through the issues as you see them and offer our guidance on the way forward for you. Simply tell us what you are planning, where to find your website so we can get to know the technology, and give us access to any evidence of the impact of the app you have gathered so far and we will be in a good position to share our knowledge with you.
We are a charity with a mission to help organizations engage in change and adopt new practices and our prices are fixed to give as many people as possible access to our expertise.
A clinic on adoption: £500
A clinic on evidence gathering: £500
