For many years, people in healthcare have been asking for ways to exchange improvement skills and ideas in an open environment. Hexitime is an elegant solution that responds to this need.
Hexitime (borne the Q Community Timebank and Skills Exchange) was one of the 15 projects funded through the 2018 Q exchange programme and launched on the 4th April 2019.
The first 100 days saw 196 timebanking members post 65 offers of help and 36 requests for help - everything from human factors training and paediatrics process mapping through to 1-2-1 coaching on how to best process mental health data and the delivery of a complexity informed improvement webinar.
Give an hour, get one back
First and foremost, Hexitime is a timebank. When members join the timebank, they can access the skills and expertise of the health and social care community without real money changing hands - so long as they are prepared to give something back.
All exchanges are for improvement work and all exchanges are equitable (e.g. member ‘A’ is not worth more than member ‘B’). Skills exchanges can therefore work across a number of organisational, regional or national levels.
Turn bright ideas into projects
Hexitime also allows members, and the organisations they work for, a free platform to exchange their ideas – helping both their professional development and their improvement projects.
Members can pose their questions and challenges on Hexitime - gathering the ideas and insights of the Hexitime community - and turning the best ideas into projects.
Campaign for a better future
The campaigns feature lets members mobilise their efforts around health and social care priorities. These priorities are defined by the platform partners - a strategy designed to attract organisational partners and sustain the platform.
Whilst the partners of Hexitime provide the framework, the members themselves create the activities on which each campaign will succeed - increasing the collective impact of the Hexitime network.
Our design team conceived the 'Hexitime' name and brand identity, and provide a light-level of design and communications support to help this movement get off the ground.
