NHS Hack Day – Dementia Scrapbook
NHS Hack Days are weekend events that brings together doctors, nurses, developers, designers, and other "geeks who love the NHS" to create disruptive solutions to problems in the health space.
Our team worked together on a novel application called the Dementia Scrapbook – a tablet app that allows content to be uploaded by family and friends, which can then be browsed by people with dementia. It doesn’t need user interaction, but if they can touch the screen it responds with content to support their memories.
We successfully scooped the prize from the Health Foundation and now we plan to get started on a simple implementation and open source it on GitHub.
