#OpenDataSavesLives: Unconference 2


RAP Open Working Event @Open Innovations Workspace

#OpenDataSavesLives is driving open innovation with data. Our aim is to help reduce inequalities by creating for the first time a true network of collaborators and resources in the open.

In light of the recent release of the Goldacre Review, we are working with NHS Digital and others, taking a deep dive into reproducible analytical pipelines and how they can be universally adopted to improve processes for data processing, analysis and reporting across the health sector.

We will be hosting a whole-day event at the Open Innovations space in Leeds. We aim to do two things:- Showcase examples, share knowledge and use cases, where RAPs have been developed, with a particular focus on the challenges teams have faced and how to resolve them. We will be hosting a series of lightning talks with opportunities for questions and guidance in a follow-up 'surgery' and Q&A. Speakers to be confirmed.- Building on the topics from discussions in the morning, we will hold a working session in the afternoon where we will consolidate the challenges and best practices shared by attendees to write the first draft of NHS Digital's first RAP Playbook.

The RAP Playbook will be used to offer guidance to other teams and collaborators on seven broad themes which we will tackle on the day:

  • Data
  • Infrastructure
  • Information Governance
  • Sharing
  • Code
  • Stories
  • Maintenance
By meeting in person and working in the open, we will give an opportunity to connect with new people, share work, receive guidance and feedback on projects and more. 

If you are interested in this area and would like to participate or share your work, then please register and get in touch with us: hello@opendatasaveslives.org. We look forward to seeing you here in October!
