QRcodes for Research administrators : NHSHackday Cardiff

Interesting project at NHShackday Cardiff 24/25 January.

Problem: Carers have no access to patient data
Solution : Paper's Got Data / WISDAM
Produce secure ODF catalogues of patient data
Give patient a summary printout of catalogue with QR codes
Each QR code can be scanned on phone to get latest up to date data of each dataset.
Restrict data access to patient and carers
Build Libreoffice plugin to create QRcodes in ODF
NO PRINTOUT – NO ACCESS
WITH PRINTOUT – SECURE ACCESS TO OWN DATA

The 2 day project managed to deliver a lot of discussion and argument between myself, Helga Perry and Rupert Fawdry, plus a plugin to Libreoffice to insert a QRcode into a word processing file - courtesy Michael Meeks of Collabra. https://people.gnome.org/~michael/blog/2015-01-25.html

QRcodes are of significant use to research administrators who have to handle lots of letters and consent forms as part of the interaction with the patient, so this open source plugin may come in useful to Brisskit - we'll wait and see.

Another hackday appearance for the Myself, Saj and Russ this weekend as we travel to London's Guys Hospital for another NHSHackday bash.
This time we'll be trying to make a useful connection between tools in the BRISSKit suite and Apple's HealthKit. There seems to be a lot in common between the underlying data models, and who knows we might be able to come up with a useful personal fitness research application at the end of it. - Lets hope so!
