Supported by NHS Digital, NHS England, the NHS Code4health initiative aims to stimulate the provision of an open health and care ecosystem to develop and deliver high quality digital solutions. The Nutshell Apps platform is the latest addition to the capabilities being made available for Code4Health communities to leverage.

The Code4Health team from NHS Digital recently attended the Nutshell Apps offices to familiarise themselves with our no code, drag and drop app building platform, as they continue an app innovation journey that will see them utilising the platform to enable positive change in the way health and care services are delivered.

Recently, the Nutshell team – as Code4Health supporters – facilitated a session with the NHS Youth Forum. In an afternoon, the team took the requirements of the young people involved and turned this into a working prototype, to stimulate further design and development.

Nutshell offers the solution to app development woes across a broad range of industries, by providing frontline staff with the means to create high quality, feature-rich apps that support the future of employment and digital working environments with absolutely no code required.

Digitising existing processes and facilitating positive change in an industry central to health and wellbeing in the UK, using the Nutshell platform, is sure to provide clinicians and social care professionals with the appropriate tools to make positive and long-lasting digital changes.

Peter Coates from NHS Digital who leads the Code4Health initiative said:

“The Nutshell platform provides our Code4Health communities with a rapid app development and delivery environment, dramatically reducing the time and effort to prototype, productionise and deliver apps that satisfy their requirements. Our Code4health communities have a wide range of projects that will be utilising the Nutshell platform and we are continuing to work with Nutshell their app development platform is interoperable with the wider health and care eco-system as a we build out an open digital platform for health and care.”

Martyn Cuthbert, Nutshell’s managing director, followed with:

“The Nutshell team are incredibly proud to be working alongside the NHS Code4Health initiative and the Apperta Foundation on this project, knowing how immeasurably vital the future of healthcare is to us all. To see a team of non-developers and young people building healthcare app solutions, in what is becoming an incredibly innovative space, is the future of app development in this industry.”
