Dear all,

our 2nd workshop in this series is taking place this Saturday, July 22nd 2017 and you are cordially invited to join Open Knowledge Ireland

The workshop has been called into life to identify and prototype digital & tech solutions that use public data from data.gov.ie (=‘Open Data’) and showcase how Open Data can provide benefits for citizens and society as a whole. This workshop is workshop #2 in a series of 4 workshops. It is focused on using public Hospital Waiting List data and building digital/tech based solutions that help to make this data accessible to every citizen and to help address Hospital Waiting Lists as one of Ireland’s big current collective challenges.

 

It was a great day last time around and it’s an awesome opportunity to build on something that benefits all citizens.

Dear all,

you are cordially invited to join Open Knowledge Ireland and friends for a one day workshop geared to use the recently published Hospital Wait Time data to create tools & products in order for ALL citizens to be able to benefit of the availability of that information. We are taking advantage of the fact that for the first time Hospital Waiting List (HWL) data is available in machine readable format for the first time.

Date: 25 March 2017
Time: 10am – 6pm
Venue: Dovetail Technologies, Guinness Enterprise Centre, Taylor's Lane, Dublin 8, Ireland (Location)

Registration: https://ti.to/open-knowledge-ireland/Waiting-List-Workshop-1

The workshop is designed to link up those who are suffering from long hospital wait times, with those that have relevant data and with those that are able to use the data and build tools, applications and products for the benefit of patients and all citizens.

We will be working together on our Open Hospital Waiting List Project to:

  • identify best practices in using public data on hospital wait times for the benefit of the public 
  • enable the public to monitor hospital wait times & performance
  • make better decisions as to where to obtain health services
  • increase transparency and accessibility of hospital data (i.e. waiting lists) through data liberation;
  • develop a strategy to make this information and the whole subject known to the wider public.
Who should attend: This is a community based project and anyone with a desire to help improve hospital wait times for the greater good is welcome and in fact we need all hands on deck. Attendees will have a fun and productive day when groups are matched up between patients, citizens, open data, digital, tech, analytics and public service subject matter experts in order to allow those who have the skills to use the data and build tools to learn from those that are suffering from long hospital wait times in order to solve real social problems.
