FIT CTU signed a memorandum of cooperation with IPVZ

The Institute for Postgraduate Medical Education (IPVZ) signed a memorandum with the Faculty of Information Technology, CTU in Prague (FIT CTU), to establish close cooperation, especially in the field of technological development of the application platform of the “Administrator” project.

Since last spring, IPVZ has undergone a significant change, which concerns the administration of instruction and the entire process. For a year now, the Institute for Postgraduate Medical Education has been successfully working on a critical project of an innovative information system for the administration of education of healthcare workers. Therefore, the project has the working title “Administrator”, and because it is not only about fundamental changes in administration and information processing but also about complex technical solutions, IPVZ concluded a Memorandum of Cooperation with FIT CTU. By signing the memorandum, both parties create a framework for close cooperation, especially in the technological development of the application platform of the “Administrator” project.

“The Administrator information system, once deployed, should bring significantly greater clarity in the administration of healthcare worker education, significantly simplify and speed up the entry of applicants for specialized education into this process and, last but not least, facilitate the agenda related to identifying and verifying valid information about participants and providers of healthcare worker education,” said Irena Maříková, director of the Institute for Postgraduate Medical Education.

As part of the recently concluded memorandum of cooperation between IPVZ and FIT CTU, the analytical team of the Administrator project has joined with the faculty students and teachers to design the evaluation module of the Administrator application. The IPVZ team will cooperate with FIT CTU within the project-oriented course “Team Project 1”, guaranteed by the Department of Software Engineering of FIT CTU. The students of this course form analytical and design teams of about 3 to 7 students, in which they use software engineering methods to solve real projects that often overlap with the commercial sphere, in this case, the public sector.

“Within the framework of the Administrator project, IPVZ has commissioned the FIT CTU department to analyze the university’s existing and time-tested evaluation module, the so-called CTU Survey. The use of an existing and proven evaluation system, which has been refined for years at the university, will allow the IPVZ team to significantly reduce the time for developing a similar application and will fundamentally reduce the cost of the entire project,” said Daniel Rovný, IPVZ deputy director for IT and digital transformation, explaining the cooperation.

At FIT CTU, a group of 7 students has signed up for this project that cooperates under the professional supervision of Ing. Jiří Chludil, their teacher and member of the IPVZ analytical team, with the analytical team of the Administrator project. The result of their cooperation will be a feasibility study of the use and possible further modifications of the already existing evaluation “CTU Survey” module for the needs of the Administrator project, which will digitize specialization education in Czech health care.

The memorandum confirms the established long-term cooperation, among other things, in the spirit of the credo “We respect the past but create the future”.
