PKB at Make It – Bristol Health Collaboration for innovation

Have you ever thought about writing a medical application but couldn’t get a hold of medical data?

At Bristol’s Health Collaboration for innovation Make It event this weekend, PKB along with other changemakers turned up to show how easy it is and how collaborative healthcare innovation is. Developers tapped into PKB’s completely open API and dummy accounts to prove their concepts and ideas. Project ideas ranged from streamlining the patient transport system and transforming the discharge process to connecting medical data with nutrition and fitness tracking to create a holistic patient record that combines medical and wellness.

Innovation comes from opening up APIs and allowing ideas to be tested and developed freely. (Click here to read Dr. Mohammad Al-Ubaydli’s Nesta blog on open APIs). If you are interested in doing something similar, you can find our open API documentation here. For questions, please email
