We need your help in building a feedback app for the young patients of COSMIC, the paediatric intensive care unit of St. Mary’s Hospital in London. The desired app will help COSMIC capture important information from children and their families after their stay.
Unfortunately, existing feedback systems are not engaging enough for children and are very expensive. Meanwhile, those children who are admitted are often critically ill, requiring life support, so requesting feedback during their stay isn't always appropriate and it’s very difficult to get children and families to give feedback after discharge from the hospital. Yet, insight from these very special patients will enable COSMIC to shape future services and help provide the best possible care.
On Saturday 31 May, Zendesk, a longtime supporter of COSMIC, is sponsoring a very exciting hackathon to build an app that can gather this critical feedback. Over the course of a day, you'll build an innovative app/game that compels patients to provide feedback that's simple and engaging. Your projects will be judged by our esteemed panel and the top three projects will be handsomely rewarded (see prizes below).
As developers, it's so easy to get buried in feature work and deliverables that we forget about our incredible ability to help people in a huge way, with just a bright idea and bit of effort. We hope to pack the room with amazing and talented designers and devs who can deliver a solution that's been on this charity's wish list for a very long time. Please join us for a great cause!
