About this site
This site is the first joint venture of a group of NHS doctors, academics, and London tech start-ups, individually listed below, who met at NHS Hack Day. We love open data, technology, and the NHS, and we think that bringing all of these together in the right way could be amazing. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to talk.

We love the NHS so we’re working hard to make NHS IT less bad…. we make highly usable, and useful, apps and web services for doctors. We also do analytics that amaze, credible digital health consultancy, and the awesome NHS Hack Days. www.openhealthcare.org.uk
Your business could be even more successful, if only you could unlock the power of all the data that you already have. But it’s hard to even know where to start — the data is big, it’s messy, and the analytical and technology options can be bewildering.
