Description

Build and test prototypes for Directory of Services which allows data to be entered and maintained in a central repository, which we can test and get feedback from. Hackney Council and its health and voluntary sector partners have various needs and obligations to maintain directories of services. This is currently done manually reducing the value of the directories and fragmenting the experience for users. Discovery explored the scope for a single source directory of services which relies predominantly on automatic updates. This phase will test the assumptions and recommendations from Discovery.

    We have taken time to consider how best to take the project forward, and have put together 4 options:

    Approach one: Fully resourced project:

    • Develop MVP data engine that connects to a live, or ready to test, front end (e.g. GP Confed health and wellbeing app) to enable integration and user testing

    • Prototypes from the alpha phase could be built into the scope of the MVP

    This approach will help the project take the necessary steps to move towards achieving its vision (as set-out on page one), with the right resource, engagement and buy-in from the system to deliver a product of value.


    Approach two: Limited resources, existing datasets:

    Take steps towards our vision by improving existing datasets under the guidance of the ‘core project team’.


    Approach three: Dissolve:

    Acknowledge learnings to date and dissolve the project.


    Approach 4: Partner up:

    Progress with a variation of Approach 1, looking for partners across the system with common needs and (sufficient) common technology who might work with the ‘core project team’.
