Learning Disability Hospital Passport App that will capture essential information about the person with a learning disability, they could update the app with their essential information and then list could be shown to healthcare staff to better meet their needs. Could be based on one of the passports that are already in place such as Gloucester Traffic Light Assessment.

People who've attended hospital could score their hospital food out of ten and could post pictures and comments on the food.

We are a pilot site for the new NHS dental contract. We think that an app related to the care pathways would be a good idea. When a patient comes for a check-up they are given scores depending on the dentist's findings of red, amber or green. Each score comes with different pieces of advice and recommendations both for the dentist and patient. There could be an app where the patient can enter their scores from the ...more »

Our idea is a 'Sleep Safe' App. This App would be a game where new parents, grandparents and other carers of infants up to 12 months could have a picture of a high risk infants room and be asked to identify the risks - when they tapped the risk factors - a bubble would appear to let them know why this is a risk and what they can do to reduce the risk. They would also have a tab/link that would take them to all the risk ...more »

Thyroid Function Test result available on a Mobile or via a website. The patient obtains the test results from their surgery. They open the app and input the values in to the specific fields i.e T4, T3 and then click "Get my result". The app would then look-up the values and give an output either Hyper, Hypo or Normal and the new required thyroxine dose to be taken. I know this could potentially cause problems with the ...more »
