Section II: Object
Scalable software as a service (SaaS) for a clinical patient management system to support European reference networks.
This competitive dialogue is designed to provide the contracting authority with a clinical patient management system to support networks in the diagnosis and treatment of rare or low-prevalence complex diseases or conditions across national borders in the European Union.
The services required are scalable software as a service (SaaS), with project management, maintenance, integration, customisation and support of a set of single, secure Web-based information systems for the hosting, sharing and cross-border exchange of sensitive data and information. The SaaS should provide shared components for use by all networks with the capacity to be customised to meet the specific needs of individual networks (or group(s) of networks).
The services required are a scalable software as a service (SaaS), with project management, adaptation, maintenance, integration and support of a set of single, secure Web-based information systems for the hosting, sharing and cross-border exchange of sensitive data and information in the context of ERNs that are informed in the case of shared components for each ERN and can be adapted to thematic business analyses of the business processes to meet the needs of each ERN (or group of ERNs).
If more than the maximum number of operators meets the selection criteria, the relative strengths and weaknesses of these operators will be ranked to identify the foreseen maximum number. The ranking will be based on testing by the contracting authority of an existing operational SaaS provided by the tenderer for the sharing and exchanging of sensitive healthcare data and information between healthcare experts in 3 geographically distant locations. The only factors which will be taken into consideration during this ranking will be, in order of precedence:
1) usability (including interoperability with other systems) (50 %);
2) responsive design (25 %); and
3) accessibility (25 %).
