Clinically Integrated Facilities Track
As healthcare priorities and patient needs continue to evolve rapidly, there is increasing pressure to ensure existing healthcare infrastructure can meet these new priorities and needs. Developing clinically integrated facilities can be key to meeting clinician and patient needs. In this track, we will explore how to future-proof facilities, navigate space planning amid shifting factors, and strategies to plan for increased connectivity in hospital facilities.
Planning for Connected Medical Devices

Moderator: Brent Petty
Panelist: Samantha Jacques
According to some estimates, within the next 10 years, more than 50 billion connected medical devices could be in use globally. For facility leaders, planning for increased connectivity goes beyond budgeting and purchasing the appropriate capital equipment. Other considerations include ensuring the appropriate stakeholders are involved and confirming each capital equipment purchase can be integrated with existing equipment. Join a panel of clinical engineers as they discuss how to plan for the widespread use of connected medical devices in your facilities, share approaches to gain buy-in from key stakeholders, and outline practical strategies to ensure connectivity between capital equipment.
- Define the considerations that should be used when evaluating new technology.
- Evaluate if today’s facilities should be designed with an overarching vision for the implementation of future technologies.
- Discuss best practices for establishing and maintaining stakeholder alignments for the duration of a project.
- Learn when to remove old technology and strategies to ensure connectivity with its replacement.
