The Newcastle launch of HANDI


HANDI, the Healthcare App Network for Development and Innovation, is a group of clinicians, developers, informaticians and others who believe that agile healthcare apps for patients, carers and health and care professionals provide the key to enabling IT to transform of health and care.

It wants to encourage and support app innovators. HANDI knows from experience that creating an app and getting it widely used can be a painful experience and have established HANDI as a not-for-profit venture to provide mutual support and help create an environment in which apps can flourish and want to invite you to join us.

HANDI is an open and inclusive organisation that supports all with an interest in health and care apps.

If you’re a student in business, medicine, media, computing science or any other subject area, we want to work with you.

 There will be opportunities for specialist learning in health app development and the chance to network with emerging and established app innovators.
