Musgrove Park Hospital
Handi Paedatric App
A success story for the NHS
The app was the brainchild of the paediatric team at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton; designed to reduce the number of non-emergency visits to A&E.
Aimed at parents of babies / young children and medical professionals, the app provides expert support with the most common childhood illnesses. It uses a question and answer pathway to determine the right course of action when a child is ill.
The paediatric team commissioned Reactor15 to build the app based on the pathways they had developed. We also added a content management system to enable doctors to keep the information on the app up to date.
The HANDi app has proved to be a great success, with take up from a number of NHS trusts around the country. It is available on both the Apple and Android app stores.
