Overview of the Assignment


Health and Community Services (HCS) – Reciprocal Billing Upgrade Project

The Department of Health and Community Services provides a leadership role in health and

community services programs and policy development for the province. This involves working in

partnership with a number of key stakeholders including regional health authorities, community

organizations, professional associations, post-secondary educational institutions, unions,

consumers and other government departments.

The application currently used by HCS to manage out of province health claims (OPCs) currently

resides on 16-bit architecture technology. Developed using SQL Base and SQL Windows for

application development and MS Access for reporting, the application is now incompatible with 64-

bit desktops and Windows server technology at the Office of the Chief Information Officer

(Windows Server 2012 and Windows 10).


The application is out of support, very difficult to maintain and poses a risk. It needs an upgrade to

a new secure technology that is easy to support.



The Project Manager will be responsible for the facilitation, oversight, planning and coordination

of the project. A small project team consisting of a technical development resource and business

analyst will be assigned, and will work under the direction of the Delivery Manager.
