Hexitime is producing a range of interesting results and insights. Here's how we are measuring the effectiveness of this platform.
Process measures are collected from this platform which include number of timebank members, offers and requests posted and hours banked. Over the course of the year, we are also hosting a number of qualitative focus groups to identify how the overall usability and design can be improved.
Working alongside various stakeholders including the Health Foundation, active timebankers and their host organisations, outcome measures are being determined by calculating the value of timebankers’ time had they been employed to do the work.
Other qualitative understanding of learning, connectivity to the Q Community and sense of self-worth will be collected through individual narratives over the course of the year. We will publish impact stories to demonstrate some of the impact that has been generated.
Hexitime is funded by the Health Foundation’s Q Exchange programme. The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK.
