Case Studies

Dublin Voluntary Hospital

Title: Audit of the Hospital Against the Recommendations Made in the HIQA Report on AMNCH

Date: July – September 2012

About the organsiation:

The client is one of the country’s major Voluntary Hospitals and is based in Dublin

Project Description:

Prospectus was commissioned by the Chair to conduct an audit of the Hospital against the 76 recommendations made in the HIQA Report on AMNCH. The project involved extensive staff interviews, liaising with hospital management, development and implementation of an audit framework and the drafting of a final report and action plan for the client.

Key achievements/outputs:

The end deliverable was a detailed report, rating the hospital’s compliance against all of the recommendations of the HIQA Report on AMNCH and a detailed action plan to allow the hospital to address the recommendations where it was not fully compliant.

Key learnings or insights from the project:

As a Voluntary Hospital, the client is now operating in a changing and challenging regulatory environment which is challenging the Hospital’s existing governance structures. This project highlighted for me the challenges facing the voluntary sector in the emerging healthcare landscape.

Multinational Medtech Company

Title: Stakeholder Identification, Mapping and Engagement

Date: February to March 2013

Project Description:

Prospectus was commissioned by a leading multinational Medtech company to identify who its key stakeholders are in the Irish healthcare and governmental systems. The project involved extensive research, facilitating working sessions with the client, development of detailed briefing papers for the client and the development of a detailed stakeholder engagement plan.

Key achievements / outputs:

The end deliverable was a detailed stakeholder engagement plan. This included information on key stakeholders, key areas of common interests, triggers for making contact, a power rating of the stakeholder and who should own the relationship from the client’s side.

Key Learning or Insights from the project:

As a commercial entity trying to operate in a highly changeable healthcare environment this project highlighted to me the challenges faced by companies operating in the Irish healthcare sector. The project also highlighted the importance of stakeholder engagement and management in the relatively small Irish market.
