Specifications and calls for tenders

Whether ERP, KIS, LIS, RIS, or EPDG - we take the entire IT landscape and its peripheral systems into consideration when preparing the specification and tender documents.

Evaluation and contracts

To help you select the right provider, we use value analyses and evaluation procedures. We also, on request, advise you on contract-drafting or -review, work contracts, and negotiating with suppliers.

Detailed concepts and project management

We create the requirements and data models for the implementation, including peripheral system integration. If you so wish, we can also take over the project management.

Module and integration tests

This capability is in great demand. Whether for scripts or concepts for functional or integration tests, we are your integration test manager.

Cutover and acceptance

Moving to the Go-Live stage requires good planning and a Plan B – as well as an emergency plan. The cornerstone? Acceptance, where expectations and achievements meet. Are expectations being met? This is where change-order management begins. Acceptance is based on defined and weighted severity codes according to the contractually-defined criteria, with us supporting you every step of the way.

Successful projects: We prefer the pragmatic and the practical – just like you. In our project work, here’s what we value:

Reaching the goal, together and pragmatically

Inter- and cross-disciplinary cooperation in the design, implementation, testing, and launch.

We always view the medical profession, nursing, and paramedicine as equals. We look for the least common denominator and use this as the basis for commitment throughout the project phases.

Whenever possible, we divide a project into manageable subprojects. That way, we use our expert knowledge primarily for specification and implementation. Protocols and presentations are drawn up free of interpretation, but only as many as necessary. These may also be made using in-hospital resources.

We consider regular and unembellished information from hospital management to be critical, as is good team spirit. This is vital for the phases of enthusiasm and disillusionment (“valley of tears”) and for the project’s ultimate success.
