The New Brunswick Department of Health, (Innovation and eHealth (IEH)), is responsible for supporting the Regional Health Authorities in alignment and integration of digital health solutions and services to achieve optimal health system performance and quality care for all citizens of New Brunswick.  

Over the next 12 months, the Department along with the RHAs need to undertake planning initiatives that will not only support subsequent COVID outbreaks but deliver services within the definition of the “new normal”. Initiatives to transform delivery of services is a priority.


Vitalité leaders are planning and preparing to resume their service delivery as part of what will inevitably be "a new normal". Hospitals, clinics and doctors' offices today are not designed to meet the "new standard", in accordance with the new regulations imposed by Public Health to support the pandemic response. The delivery of health care is being forced to change, and technology will be an enabler in this transformation.


A new type of hybrid care is what needs to be considered, while focusing on how to keep future occupancy rates lower through opportunities such as virtual care, remote patient monitoring, and citizen focused scheduling opportunities.


The health system is committed and engaged in defining the "new normal " and plans to overcome the constraints of the post-pandemic through innovation and collaboration with all stakeholders to ensure current digital health solutions are leveraged to full capacity. While there will be gaps we need to better understand the appropriate user stories that reflect the Regional Health Authorities that reflect the “new normal”.


Services Sought

The branch is seeking the services of a Senior Project Manager with Management Consulting competencies to lead the discovery phase and tactical planning phase of these transformation efforts.


The mandate includes supporting the initiative and the respective deliverables with Project Management tasks, as well as assist in a Management Consulting capacity to developing a tactical plan that will meet the needs of the RHAs in response to the pandemic recovery strategies within various program areas. The Vitalite Health Network has just completed a survey with a significant number of clinical stakeholders to better understand their needs as it relates to operating in this “new normal”. The survey results will inform the development of a series of user stories, this information will be validated with key focus groups and documented in a manner that will facilitate a gap analysis and subsequent tactical planning and recommendations. All activities will be supported by key stakeholders within the Department of Health, Service New Brunswick and the RHAs. A hybrid agile approach to performing the work is desired.


Activities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Ensure lightweight (agile) project management/consulting approach is utilized throughout the project.
