HIQA considers need for ‘enterprise regulatory system’

By Dermot - 01st Nov 2019 | 4 views

HIQA has expressed interest in going to market for an “enterprise regulatory system”.

While HIQA specifies it is not tendering for a system or in a position to offer contracts, the Authority wants to determine the “availability and range of enterprise solutions” that can support its regulatory remit.

“It is envisaged that the feedback garnered as part of this market sounding will inform the approach that HIQA may take to any future tendering for this requirement,” according to the Authority.

HIQA states it would require a comprehensive regulation solution that will ensure compliance, quality and ease of use for the various stakeholders involved.

It would also look for “streamlined application workflows, for recording and reporting, to reduce processing lead times while also ensuring that all current and future legislative obligations are complied with”.

“The system should allow advanced workflow management capabilities, so that a change to the system can trigger an action or a sequence of actions,” according to HIQA.

“Actions should include the generation of activity records and the automatic creation of emails.”

Any procured system would need to have a robust, secure and easy to use template management/document generation, with integrated document storage, collaboration, and retrieval.

There should also be an online portal for the general public to log queries and track progress.

The deadline for expressions of interest in the market sounding exercise is Thursday 6 November.

Where many expressions of interest are received, HIQA will shortlist vendors for further discussion and presentations.
