How to use digital ways of working to improve outcomes for patients

This Playbook describes case studies that demonstrate how open source approaches to code, community, governance and documentation can help teams develop, improve and promote their work. It is split into two pathways. The first pathway places each of the case studies in their medical context, while the second relates them to digital transformation. If you have any feedback, would like to know more, or would like to see your work in this playbook, please get in touch at
