Personally selected by academic supervisors to contribute to a 13-week team project to support Maryland Health’s e-Procurement Proof of Concept pilot project. Working from a framework of existing issues, produced costing and process models encompassing proof-of-concept, business process reengineering recommendations, expected functionality, the feasibility of the technology for long-term expandability, and forecasted investment returns.

Using ARIS Toolset 5.0 mapped business processes and gathered data via a series of interviews with cost centre general managers, supervisors, and key employees. As appointed Communications and Time Manager for the team presented meeting minutes outlining issues delegated, discussed, and resolved.

  • Volunteered to preside over performance measurement issues. Conducted research and produced recommendations that compared the value of implementing or not implementing EBP functionality.
  • Added value by introducing the idea to interview vendors for feedback on an EBP implementation. Project managers were delighted with positive responses from Johnson & Johnson and Kimberley-Clark.
  • Introduced idea of interviewing other organizations such as Maryland Rail currently implementing the solution to facilitate meaningful exchanges for improved implementation.
  • Gathered information from focus group meetings at the Maryland Base Hospital. Collated responses for the Excel-based “Issues Register” offering short-, medium-, and long-term recommendations to concerns raised.
