Mentoring S.Α. undertook the implementation of advisory support services for the project “Operational and technological infrastructure, telematics and video-conference services, aiming at enhancing know-how ability and rehabilitation programs of ELEPAP”, in the framework of the Operational Program «Digital Convergence», as a member of an Association of Companies*.

The project aims to establish the network and computing infrastructure of the Hellenic Society for Disabled Children (ELEPAP) and its Annexes and motivate / support other institutions that will express interest in joint participation in this project, to support telematics services, video-conferencing, e-learning and the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to improve existing rehabilitation programs.

The main objective of the project is to enhance the activities and presence of ELEPAP in the field of healthcare, education and rehabilitation therapy for children with physical disabilities, through advanced telematics, computing, video-conferencing and tele-rehabilitation technologies.

The completion of this project will cover specific needs not only of the immediate served population (people suffering from some type of physical disability), but also of the indirectly served population (family and “important others” in the lives of people with disabilities) that by far, were not covered at all, or were covered in a fragmentary and non-systematic way.

The complexity and high difficulty degree of this project emerges from the greatly increased requirements, both in terms of technological infrastructure (hardware and software) and in terms of operational infrastructure.

Within the Association of Companies, Mentoring SA assumes:

  • analysis and modelling of the current operation of the institution,
  • seeking international practices and standards for tele-rehabilitation services,
  • designing the proposed project,
  • redesigning ELEPAP’s processes to provide new online services in the most appropriate and efficient way,
  • part of the user’s educational services

In addition, Mentoring S.A. will develop a Quality Management System according to ISO 9001:2008 for ELEPAP, that will include new procedures for tele-rehabilitation.

*The Association of Companies “Systema S.A., Mentoring S.A. and Magnum Opus Ltd.” is the Contractor of the project “OPERATIONAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL INFRASTRACTURE, TELEMATICS AND VIDEO-CONFERENCE SERVICES AIMING AT ENHANCING KNOW-HOW ABILITY AND REHABILITATION PROGRAMS OF ELEPAP”, implemented under Call 2.1 of the Operational Program “Digital Convergence”. The project’s schedule is 12 months and is expected to be completed in January 2013.
