#DITO - Develop In The Open!


Transforming deteriorating patient care with a digital and sustainable rapid response system developed in the open

The Develop In The Open (DITO) project is funded by Innovate UK project number 27536.

"Through our project, we seek to support the improvement of patient outcomes and reduction of staff administration activity by improving digital systems, and enabling their iterative development, whilst removing vendor lock-in."

"This will be achieved by implementing an open approach to the full digital application life-cycle including conceptualisation and design, use of open standards and interoperability, created as open source with processes to allow ongoing collaborative development and professional support."

DITO has two overall objectives:

  1. Develop best practice processes for digital health tech

  2. To evidence the process, produce a digital application using the developed process
