Planning & Design Track

Planning capital projects can be a huge challenge for hospitals and health systems. With the involvement of multiple decision-makers, long-term capital planning and fixed budgets, the planning and design process is cumbersome and often lengthy. This track will provide insights on influencing decision-makers and maximizing existing space. Topics will include receiving decisive decisions on capital projects, a discussion on optimizing underutilizes clinical and non-clinical spaces, and a case study of successful CMAR.

In the United States, the average age of plant for healthcare facilities is currently 10.6 years. Patient care has rapidly evolved over the last decade and that trend is only expected to accelerate. For hospital leaders, ensuring facilities can adapt to disruptive innovations and exceed future patient care needs can be incredibly challenging. Join a panel of Industry Innovation Leaders as they discuss innovations on the horizon as well as strategies to plan for technologies and needs not yet fully realized. They will also share considerations for designing clinically integrated facilities and ensuring all relevant stakeholders are included in the planning process.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss how well-designed facilities can positively impact the outcomes of many different patient populations.
  2. Determine where facilities need to be flexible, and how to design that flexibility into healthcare spaces.
  3. Identify future innovations and technologies that impact how healthcare spaces are designed and operated.
  4. Outline the importance of engaging with stakeholders to better understand the planning process and embrace its benefits.
