There are many ways to share content online and one of the most interesting is to create your own virtual scrapbook using tools such as ‘Flipboard’. The attached article and commentary below are from our very own Carol Read and excellently demonstrates how to use this format.

Flipboard magazines are great for pulling together curated content on a subject and sharing with others in a simple way. The Horizons team have been developing our knowledge around hackathons, taking a methodology from the tech industry and fine tuning it for the health and social care environment.

One of the first hacks we completed in this style was the NHS Change Model hack (check out the #CMHack for more information). The plan was to see if a diverse group of people could hack an approach that fits with the NHS today.

To prepare extra information around the concept of hackathons leading up to the next hack #PFHack I put together this flipboard. For anyone thinking of running a hack in health the magazine covers general knowledge and insight from the Change Model and Patient Flow hacks. A further Flipboard magazine was developed and is shared in issue 14 of The Edge.
