Not all news during the COVID-19 pandemic are bad 😊
We’re deeply humbled and very thankful for Rita Veloso‘s kind words. Rita is an Executive Member of the Board of Directors at Póvoa de Varzim and Vila do Conde Hospital Center (Centro Hospitalar Povoa de Varzim – Vila do Conde), an Institution of HEROES who are in the front-line fighting against the coronavirus:
“In the past 2 years, one of the strategic axes for CHPVVC has been the strong and marked bet on a digital culture while involving its workforce and patients, promoting digital literacy in its community which contributed a lot to the reorganization of its departments and the implementation of work from home practices in reaction to this pandemic phase.
Therefore at a time when the rethinking of circuits and ways of working and communicating is critical, it was a necessity for us to guarantee leadership continuity and decision-making at the Board of Directors, in order to assure that the Institution continues to function normally.
Having been aware of the SMART GOVERNANCE solution for this digital management and, if necessary, also remotely, we established a partnership with the company CAVEDIGITAL, which promptly accepted the challenge and made this tool available in only a few days and which would allow us to implement this complex process.
Our experience could not have been any better. The preparation and organization of proposals by the different departments and the digital board meeting itself allowed not only better prior access to information but also its preparation and analysis. The board meeting has become much more agile and the time needed has been substantially reduced compared to the previous format (using paper documents and manual deliberations). It also allowed for the meeting to occur without requiring physical presence in the same room whenever it’s necessary. Another great advantage was the automatic registration of the deliberations in the minutes document and digitally signing it, rendering the whole process more transparent and secure.
The whole experience exceeded by far our expectations and for which we are very much grateful at a stage when our People need even more of each one of us.”

All our team is profoundly moved by Rita’s testimony and we’re grateful for having been given the opportunity to contribute.
