Abstract Introduction
The Surrey Heartlands Hackathon Project aimed to develop the local analytic workforce, encourage collaboration across organisational boundaries, produce new data visualisations providing insights required to transform care and improve population health, and ultimately develop a community of practice amongst analysts within the Integrated Care System (ICS).The focus of the project has been a series of Hackathon events where ICS analysts and decision-makers worked intensively together for a day to co-produce new data visualisations to answer actionable questions developed with decision-makers.
Method
A mixed method approach is being used to evaluate the structure process and outcomes of this project. Data collected includes:- Repeated surveys of the analysts involved in the project to track self-reported data visualisation skills and confidence working with colleagues from outside their organisation- Feedback surveys of decision makers on the usefulness of the events in improving the quality of data products for service improvement- Face to face interviews and focus groups with a sample of those involved in the project- Analysis of usage of data visualisations published on the internet.
Results
To date, we have found the project has increased analyst confidence in working together, from 57% before to 80% after. Decision-makers have consistently reported the hackathon events to be useful. The final results of the full evaluation will be presented at the conference.
Conclusion
Early findings indicate that undertaking joint analytic projects increases the sense of a community of practice amongst analysts from diverse organisations within an ICS. External funding details Advancing Applied Analytics, The Health Foundation
