Hexitime membership reaches 200!
Less than four weeks since the launch of the first skill exchange for healthcare improvers, Hexitime has reached the milestone of 200 members. The growing community varies from clinicians supporting patients on the frontline, through to academics, analysts and Quality Improvement experts from around the UK.
John Lodge, co-founder of Hexitime and Head of Quality Improvement at NHS I in London said:
Hesham Abdalla co-founder of Hexitime and consultant paediatrician explained:
Since the launch on 4th April, there have been five completed skill exchanges between members. These include mentoring, training and support in diverse areas including human factors, data visualisation and pathway development for hospital staff.
Mark Hellaby ODP (Operating Department Practitioner) and Healthcare leader was the first to bank credits with his response to a request for help with Human Factors training. Mark, an expert in cognitive errors, supported the delivery of a successful conference in Walsall to help improve the quality of their maternity services. Reflecting on his experience, he said:
Hexitime is part of the Health Foundation’s Q Exchange programme. It currently displays 30 generous offers and 20 heartfelt requests for skills and support.
