Hello and welcome to our Digital Commons Academy, a set of open access videos, which you are free to use and and share with colleagues.

At Ripple Foundation we appreciate that digital advancement in health and care is complex so we’ve broken down the issues into a series of short but thorough videos for you to explore.  Our hope is that by watching the films on your own or as part of training within a team we can help to share our learning with you.

Each film is less than 5 minutes and covers a range of topics including clinical leadership, implementing change and the state of the current market place.  We hope that they provide you with information and raise discussions for you to debate as a team, board or organisation. Full list of videos is available here or on vimeo.

We are a non-profit making organisation that was established a few years ago to support the adoption of an open platform for health and care.  We believe that the future of digital health and care is not one single technology firm providing all the solutions but a vendor neutral market place where organisations large or small can compete fairly because they are developing solutions that meet a set of open standards in pursuit of an open platform.

We hope you enjoy the topics covered and please do get in touch with your feedback – we are always learning and developing at Ripple Foundation so we welcome your views.  

Ripple Foundation is proud to be leveraging the multi-purpose QEWD.js as a world leading integration framework to meet the increasing demands of Healthcare IT.  

QEWD.js is an incredible versatile middleware that Ripple Foundation, a not for profit organisation, is endorsing as part of its showcase stack in the pursuit an open health and care platform to improve clinical systems.  It offers an integration framework that can link the UI components you need with the APIs you want and the database you use.  QEWD.js is a framework that is perfect for web integration challenge because it is fast, capable, flexible and scalable.

Ripple Foundation have five reasons why they believe that QEWD.js is a great choice for the 21st Century demands that clinicians and technicians face:

  • Web Integration Framework – ready, willing and able

  • Quality for Enterprise – built to be superfast, solid, secure and scalable
  • Javascript and JSON Based – QEWD.js leverages NodeJS and JSON
  • Open Source – openly shared to be publicly and freely accessible

Rob Tweed, the technical leader behind QEWD.js and co-owner of M/Gateway Developments Ltd said, “I’m acutely aware of the issues that health and care is facing not only in Britain but also around the world.  I am encouraged that Ripple Foundation see the value of our quality web enterprise development platform – QEWD.js – to help tackle some of the issues facing HealthIT.  It’s open source, super-fast, scalable and adaptable – what’s not to like?”

Dr Tony Shannon, Director of Ripple Foundation said, “QEWD.js is a key component of the Ripple Foundation’s showcase stack and should be taken very seriously.  It’s been cleverly crafted by Rob Tweed and it’s an incredibly versatile integration framework that is swift, agile and flexible.  If you combine QEWD.js with the rest of Ripple Foundation’s showcase stack – PulseTile and EtherCIS – they offer the basis of an open platform that can be used across the world – large or small scale.  Being modular, the flexibility is yours – please use it, get involved, build upon it and share the learning”.
