Envisioning real-life journeys

Supplementing and supporting the digital strategy, we employ Day-in-the-Life visioning scenarios which depicts how people will interact with the proposed technologies/systems in a real-life journey through the organization. This becomes a valuable planning tool for communicating the impact of various technologies in the context of the staff members and stakeholders who will use them, explaining how and why the technology solutions work together, and improving engagement, buy-in and adoption.

Business Case Analysis

Understanding ROI

While strategy takes a high-level approach to technology planning, business case analysis provides a deeper understanding of the costs, benefits and return on investment (ROI) of a specific project or technology solution. Our consultants analyze the operational and financial impact of a potential investment while considering product lifecycles, maintenance, support, and future technology evolution to develop a comprehensive business case for investment. Our unbiased and analytical approach means clients can rely on our support to make evidence-based decisions which are backed by strong technical expertise.

Process Mapping
Optimizing occupant experiences

Leveraging Lean methodology principles, clinical experience and strong industry knowledge, our workflow mapping and process improvement team brings clients closer to achieving their business objectives, whether they are to improve efficiency, increase staff and occupant safety, reduce costs and enhance the occupant experience.

Our process improvement toolkit, which builds upon our proven approach, has helped our clients – across a range of industries –  create the basis for their digital transformation.  Our team works closely with user groups to truly understand the current state and needs for the future organization’s digital requirements from a patient, provider and business perspective. We find that applying a forward-looking perspective and incorporating emerging technology trends helps clients build a clear understanding of how workflow will help drive the integration of architectural, technology, information and process elements to optimize the building and occupant experience.

Change Management Improving technology adoption

While digital transformation creates an opportunity to vastly improve workflows, efficiency, safety and client satisfaction, the significant impact to staff is an often overlooked component of such an operational change. Our consultants evaluate an organization’s readiness to change, identify the magnitude of change that each technology will bring to workflows and processes, and develop plans that leverage strategies such as champions of change, training, and go-live support to ease the transition and improve technology adoption.

Operational Readiness
Enabling success on opening day and beyond

The project isn’t finished once construction is complete. The new facility was designed to support your staff, customers and other occupants. We bring unparalleled experience in supporting system implementation from a clinical and operational readiness perspective.

Our team’s clinical background lends an important and unique perspective to planning, ensuring that challenges and potential risks are identified and addressed as early in the project as possible and that stakeholders are engaged, excited and ready to adopt new workflows and technologies.

Unified Communications
Integrate future thinking today

A key enabler to workforce mobility is the deployment of technology solutions that provide seamless communication experiences.  Unified communications systems provide the capability for team members to communicate and collaborate better via voice, video and data on a single platform that takes advantage of an organizations infrastructure and device mix.  

We help clients define their communication requirements/specifications, technology roadmap and builds the infrastructure to ensure systems work together to optimize communications. With both technology consulting, management consulting and engineering expertise we provide strategic planning and design engineering to help clients integrate future thinking into their projects today.

Innovation Hub Consulting
Frameworks for innovation

With new technologies introduced to the market ever so frequently, organizations often struggle to keep pace with new advancements and how to effectively allocate strained financial and human resources. 

Many organizations have started embracing a technique for enabling process and outcome innovations through establishing in-house innovation hubs which help propel ideas from design concepts to implementation.  Our experienced team has studied world-class organizations who have established innovation hubs and bring these lessons learned to help our clients establish a framework that creates a clear link between strategy and innovation. Angus Connect sets the stage for innovation by assisting with establishing clear governance, clarifying goals, setting priorities, building channels for communications and identifying opportunities for industry partnerships.

Smart Buildings Physical world meets the digital world

Understanding what a smart building is can be confusing, even frustrating at times because there is no one size fits all definition in the industry.

We like to think of smart buildings as the cross section where the physical world meets the digital world allowing buildings to have the capability to think for themselves They are places where a host of integrated technology solutions, such as building systems, internet of technology connected devices, wired and wireless network, converge to work together as a single, unified system working towards an organizations goals.

Command/ Operations Centres

Improving patient outcomes

As healthcare organizations look for ways to minimize costly delays in the delivery of healthcare services or to improve patient outcomes through better coordination along the care pathway or across the enterprise, the Command Centre is a solution that inspires re-imagination.

The implementation of a Command Centre has helped a growing number of healthcare organizations redesign processes, bring people together with better information and proactively manage care in real-time to direct the right resources where they need to go in order to move patients through the system.  Our consulting team is made up of clinicians and engineers who help with setting the direction on how you would like to revitalize your operations.  We have advised a number of clients establish a common vision, spell out the key functions, identify key relationships (or occupancy, co-location, partnerships), determine technology requirements and establish the needed intelligence supported by integrations from the rich sources of data within clinical, business and building systems.

Automated Guided Vehicles

Impacting space design

An often-overlooked component of redevelopment planning, Automated Guided Vehicles can have a substantial impact on the space allocation, planning and design of a building. Failure to consider this technology often results in costly changes later in the design process – or even unnecessary restrictions on the functionality and use cases which can be achieved.
