Empower

E4’s organizational structure is specifically designed to empower our clients to be creatively and rapidly responsive to meeting all levels of project responsibilities as well as addressing evolving and unanticipated needs.

In addition to the core capabilities listed above, E4 has built an Innovator Network of talented individuals ready to meet clients’ needs. E4 clients often need specialized expertise; E4 fills those unique requirements by contracting with specialists on a case-by-case basis. The E4 Innovator Network offers access to new and fresh perspectives if/when work is stalled or in need of a resurgence of inspired thinking. Finally, if we are not able to find the perfect match in the E4 Innovator Network, E4 will work on our clients’ behalf to find, qualify, and provide appropriate experts in any identified area of need.

Surge Capacity

Through our 300+ consultants and ability to match needs with expertise, E4 provides resources when and for how long you need them. We understand that work ebbs and flows in government contracting and with limited budgets, contract holders often need expertise for limited time periods. E4 can respond to requests for surge staffing quickly by tapping into our pool of experts from an array of healthcare fields. Under E4’s surge capacity, we provide to our clients: project managers to kick-off a project, subject matter experts to present on webinars, and virtual staff members to support teams for ongoing contracts. Working through E4 for your staffing needs can also help you meet your small business contracting goals through our designation as an Economically Disadvantaged Woman-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB), DUNS: 008913672, CAGE: 6HQJ6.

Virtual Project Management

The E4 network includes consultants with extensive knowledge in both traditional and virtual project management. Consultants take ownership over contract deliverables and engage in project management strategies and implementation initiatives that achieve results. Substantial experience communicating effectively with healthcare providers and key stakeholders leads the way to define quality improvement opportunities, identify risk, process efficiencies, and reduce duplication of efforts. E4’s team serves in multifaceted project roles and has the proven tools, templates, and techniques to accurately track, monitor, and analyze both projects and contract deliverables. E4 builds customized Project Management Services solutions using virtual systems, tools, and processes. In addition, the team builds a sustainable project management infrastructure that remains in place after E4’s services conclude.

Meeting Design & Facilitation

E4 Enterprise consultants regularly assist companies with meeting design, facilitation, and follow-up. Success is in the details, and clients trust E4 to expertly and efficiently coordinate essential elements. E4 handles everything including creating and distributing meeting materials, facilitating the session, guaranteeing consensus is reached, and ensuring clear direction is provided on actionable and accountable next steps.

Strategic Planning

E4 consultants work with organizational leaders to design, facilitate, document, and create strategic action plans for our clients. Consultants use a collaborative process in designing the session so that the outcomes are perfectly aligned with the organization’s vision. The E4 process generally includes pre-session interviews with attendees to ensure the in-person time is maximized. Virtual strategy planning meetings can also be conducted using technology that allows attendees to be seen and heard in real-time, thus maximizing the input of every attendee.

Quality Improvement Project Oversight

E4 consultants with more than 25 years of quality improvement experience and certification provide project oversight on any scale. From short-term projects to 5-year contracts, the E4 consultants will provide quality project planning, PDSA cycles, measurement analysis, interpretation, and displays.

Section 508 Compliance Services

E4 conducts Section 508 Compliance Review with extensive training. In addition, the team has completed hundreds of document conversions. Working mostly in Adobe and Microsoft Office programs, the 508 team produces fully accessible, public-ready resources that meet all Section 508 requirements, enabling these resources to be accessible to recipients with disabilities.

Contract Deliverable Management

E4 consultants with more than 25 years of experience in federal government contracting can excerpt contract milestones, define and assign them, and create tracking mechanisms to ensure they are completed expeditiously. Freeing internal staff from deliverables management allows your organization to focus on other critical work.  

Partnership and Stakeholder Alignment

Alignment of partners and stakeholders is essential to working on contracts of all sizes. E4 consultants can facilitate creating alignment among the stakeholders and partners of an organization by identifying their commonalities, understanding where and how the organizations need to intersect, and bringing them together for a common cause. Structures to create alignment may include virtual goal-setting sessions, onsite meetings, interviews, and online surveys.  

Learning & Action Network Event Management

E4 consultants have vast experience in LAN event management. Support can range from
creating event outlines, identifying speakers, hosting the event, creating the slide decks, facilitating the session, and creating and summarizing the event feedback. E4 uses technology such as WebEx, Survey Monkey, Uber conference, BaseCamp, and Smartsheet to ensure virtual LAN events are successful in engaging participants for shared learning. Onsite LAN event management can also be provided.  

Education Program Management

With education and certified healthcare professionals on staff, E4 offers a comprehensive solution to planning and implementing CME or CE events. E4 can step in at any point in the process to skillfully coordinate activities, supervise logistics, research and source content experts, as well as provide copywriting and editing capabilities. E4’s experts have assisted multiple organizations with planning CME and nursing CE events under the ACCME & ANCC Accreditation criteria/areas.

Continuing Education Accreditation Management

Managing an accredited continuing education program may be difficult if the subject matter expertise is not available in-house. E4 is able to step in to provide support for organizations seeking primary accreditation as well as those looking to refresh or improve their existing infrastructure to support compliance with the ANCC and ACCME.

Webinar Event Management

E4 maintains a 500-seat Webex Event Center account to support large events. We manage several webinars each month on a variety of topics, all for healthcare entities. E4’s role includes identifying speakers, coordinating and training on use of the WebEx system, planning and logistics documentation and support, as well as identifying and partnering with accredited organizations to provide accredited continuing education for the audience. E4 also hosts live events on the behalf of clients, managing all technical and customer support, as well as editing and encoding the recording of the event for on-demand viewing.
