Project Description: Malama Recovey: A groundbreaking was held September 24. The Permitting agency has approved the issuance of a Building Permit. Contractor will take out the Permit (within 30 days), once an independent Engineer performs the Special Inspections required by the Permit. Radiology Upgrade: The PACS system is being re-examined to determine the best fit for our storage infrastructure. EMC (a Fortune 500 storage vendor) is looking into a PACS system to work with our existing (and new) SAN equipment. Storage hardware (for the images) has been purchased. Data Warehousing/Reporting Initiative: Storage equipment has been purchased and installed by EMC. The migration of data warehouse data will begin after additional testing. The contract developer is updating reports to meet new specification by providers, clinicians, and government agencies, as well as grant projects. SQL server licenses have been purchased. Fax Capture Workflow Automation: Quotes are being refreshed and planning has began with the vendor. When RightFax is implemented (end of November) we'll begin the workflow automation implementation. Human Resources Management System: A team has analyzed the current HR system, and mapped solutions to improve processes while integrating the system with the Kronos timekeeping system. The Product Design workbook is done, differences have been identified between the systems, and elements that can be assimilated into the system have been defined. Workstation/Server Maintenance, Security and Patch Management Projects: Purchases of new workstations have begun. We are in discussions with the KACE vendor and quotes, with additional features, have been requested. A site visit was done by the local reseller (OfficeMax). A new vendor, that may provide a comparable inventory and patch management package but lower in cost, is being examined. To date, a total of 2.15 FTE support the projects.
