What is Crowdsourcing?
- Crowdsourcing is an invitation to all people in the crowd to create, discuss, refine and rank meaningful solutions, tasks or contributions on line
- In reality there is no crowd doing the work, rather a variety of individuals
- The aim is to get away from small group of decision makers and to be diverse and inclusive.
Why use Crowdsourcing?
- Employee Engagement: Foster a culture of innovation by implementing an employee facing idea platform.
- Open Innovation & crowdsourcing: Capture solutions and insights from an external crowd.
- Co-creation: Collaborate on solutions with suppliers, partners and customers.

Current Crowdsourcing Projects
The #SolvingTogether “crowdsourcing” platform is a regionally-led and centrally supported initiative to capture, assess, test and share ideas on a range of issues affecting our NHS. Recently #SolvingTogether has crowdsourced ideas for supporting the recovery of NHS elective care and urgent and emergency care (UEC). #SolvingTogether is currently asking the question what should always happen to ensure people go home from hospital earlier in the day and be heading #Home4Noon?
How can primary care and system partners work together to best meet the health needs of people in their local areas?
