Aspiro, together with representatives of the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Finance and the National Health Information Centre as the implementing organization, specified the scope of individual support projects and identified needed strategic decisions regarding the strategic direction of the projects. Then Aspiro has helped to ensure these decisions on relevant decision-making levels by actively supporting the communication with stakeholders.
Within this process Aspiro has also developed a blueprint on the solution’s deployment, while maintaining the integrity of the competitive environment of vendors of information systems for healthcare institutions, and at the same time minimizing additional workload for healthcare professionals while recording patient information.
Based on realized decisions and achieved consensus Aspiro has created detailed plans of the support projects, based on the steps needed to realize the decisions, their priority, as well as the planned capacity for project realization. The final structured consolidated plan included all 11 projects of the eHealth implementation Program (10 support projects + eSO1) and their dependencies.
Aspiro has also cooperated on the reassessment of priorities of implementation and creating a new realization plan (within contractual obligations) of the ongoing project eSO1, which enabled the preparation of solution deployment earlier, than originally planned.
I very much appreciate the fact, that Aspiro consultants have closely cooperated with people involved on all levels of the project’s management.
On one side, they have trained the newly appointed project managers of support projects on the basic rules of project management in a fast and effective way, and later supported them with day-to-day project management activities.
On the other side, Aspiro consultants have provided support to representatives of the Program’s Management and coordinated stakeholders to achieve decisions, which were crucial for the continuation of the Program and use of financial resources. Thanks to their cooperation we have also managed to create a more effective way of allocation of financial resources within contractual obligations of the Program.
Aspiro has also provided expert support during negotiations at the highest level (ministers, management of health insurance companies, management of hospitals, representatives of the medical community, etc.) and during presentations of Slovak eHealth on international events.
With the support of Aspiro we have also managed to creatively plan functionalities, which are first of it’s kind within the EU (advanced automatic processing of biomedical information), although this task was not part of the original project scope.
