Empowering the crowd to collect open data

We were asked by:

Bristol City Council

to consider the digital gap of:

Organisations typically collect community service information within their own silos and using their own formats which makes it difficult to aggregate and re-use the data. This inevitably wastes time and money but it also means that the data is unreliable.

National and regional social prescribing and self-care initiatives are encouraging people to take up non-clinical services to improve residents’ health & well-being and to prevent, reduce, delay the need for more expensive longer-term care and support. It is imperative, for these initiatives to succeed, that they have reliable local service data.

our solution:

Digital Gaps is developing an application which will empower the frontline crowd (residents, volunteers and workers) to collect local service information in an open data standard using a national category model of needs and circumstances ONCE so that MANY will benefit from consuming the open data that they can rely on.

resulting product: 

Still in development but release date in June
