Open Hospital Project Approach


A first analysis  of the project context is performed, to gather the information about the facility processes and flows and to define the perimeter of intervention. A complete assessment is organized into progressive steps, through meetings and interviews.


Remote/on-site activity to support the provisioning of the resources needed, configure ICT equipment (servers, networks, firewalls), install and configure software tools and applications and to set up maintenance procedures (backup, monitoring)


The training phase is divided into theory, practice and simulation phases. A Focal Point will be identified and appointed and specific training will be provided. Key groups / key figures will receive additional support, on-site or remotely.


Follow-up activities include: Goal and expected results definition; setup of successful key performance indicators. Support, corrective and evolutionary maintenance of software. User support and additional training. Communication and dissemination activites.
