Re-Engineering Electrical Demand Factors

Mar 26, 2018 1:45pm ‐ Mar 26, 2018 2:45pm

Identification: 2274

Credits: None available.

For decades, health care engineers have reported that new building electrical systems are significantly larger than the loads they are intended to serve. This discrepancy has long appeared to be an opportunity for cost reduction. However, something as significant as demand factor requirements in codes changes slowly, and, usually, only in response to overwhelming evidence. This problem has been discussed by organizations such as IEEE, Laurence Berkeley National Laboratories, National Renewable Energy Labs, ASHRAE, and the California Energy Commission. ASHE‘s advocacy team has created a research team to better study and document the realities of this situation and to submit proposals to the National Electrical Code (NEC) in response. That team is now working with representatives of the NFPA to ensure these demand factor adjustments will be approved in the next (2020) edition of the NEC. This session will explore this issue and research in depth, including opportunities for ASHE members to help.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how the evolution of demand factors for healthcare facility electrical systems have become irrelevant to today‘s health care facilities field.
  • Explain how new metering technologies for electrical distribution systems are helping inform ASHE and the NEC in ways that will help reduce system oversizing, and ultimately reduce costs so that more resources can be directed at patient care.
  • Describe ways to be involved in the research and advocacy process to support this important initiative.
  • Discuss potential design implications with respect to energy consumption of medical equipment and how this helps hospitals provide new and better technology to care for the needs of their communities.

Identification: 2261

Credits: None available.

CMS’s adoption of the 2012 edition of NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code incorporated the inclusion of the 2008 edition of ASHRAE Standard 170 but including only addenda a through d. This presentation will cover the effect of the adoption of these specific addenda and those that were not adopted. Understanding these regulations will help designers and facility managers properly apply ASHREA Standard 170 and avoid accreditation issues. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify specific addenda recognized by CMS.
  • Recognize which addenda not included and are potential accreditation pitfalls.
  • Acquire design and operational strategies to avoid these potential pitfalls.
  • Gain sufficient knowledge to be able to discuss technical advantages with designers, AHJs, and surveyors.

Neighborhood Health Care: Developing an Ambulatory Network

Mar 26, 2018 1:45pm ‐ Mar 26, 2018 2:45pm

Identification: 1904

Credits: None available.

Outpatient facilities improve community health by shifting health care beyond the boundaries of stand-alone hospitals through strategically placed satellite locations. Populations receive local access to specialty care, and the care of medical conditions is improved by the quality health care within the community. Consultants align goals for ambulatory care centers that build on the institution’s clinical mission. Four professionals involved in the development of ambulatory care facilities will present the trends, opportunities, and limitations of planning, designing, and constructing ambulatory facilities. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify populations that are best served via community-based health care access.
  • Assess a user-based design approach through a hospitality-driven aesthetic.
  • Describe how feasibility studies and scope are assessed from the owner, client, and design consultant’s perspective.
  • Track 10-year ambulatory trends.

Public Private Partnership Delivers an Emergency Department and Medical Village

Mar 26, 2018 1:45pm ‐ Mar 26, 2018 2:45pm

Identification: 1821

Credits: None available.

Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital created a medical village on the hospital campus that includes an independently operated, federally qualified, outpatient community health center. The related program includes an extended hours care center adjacent to the emergency department, and a health education training institute (HETI) that will provide community health education and outreach and workforce development training. In addition, the emergency department is being renovated to address current operational inefficiencies and new programmatic elements, including a rapid assessment/triage program. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the public funding process for the capital restructuring financing program (CRFP) including the project teams obligations to accommodate contract terms in support of a client’s public-private partnership program.
  • Identify the major program elements required to reduce overreliance on the emergency department, unnecessary hospital admissions, and repeat emergency department visits. 
  • Translate the existing, underused footprint residing in your portfolio into effective population health initiatives.
  • List specific best practice solutions, attenable within the limits of a renovation project, to improve the patient experience.

Identification: 1893

Credits: None available.

Knowing how to deliver a construction project with limited access that is located in a remote, rural area takes special attention to detail. How do you plan for increased travel time and seasonal operations of subcontractors or suppliers? How do you reach out to and offer options for local suppliers and contractors? What are the tools used to analyze and strategize for success? This presentation will provide details on how to successfully plan for projects in these unique locations.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Research the available resources of a small community or region.
  • Explain the issues related to planning for design, constructability, and delivery model in rural settings.
  • Review bidding practices that encourage local resource involvement.
  • Discuss a case study of a rural health care project to illustrate the examples presented.

Identification: 1903

Credits: None available.

Every year an estimated $20 billion is spent and approximately 75,000 people die as a result of healthcare-associated infections in the United States. The solutions that will eliminate HAIs must include a collaborative effort in design thinking by all constituents. In 2015, seven multidisciplinary firms entered a design competition to prevent HAIs and then joined forces to form The HAIO Patient Room Challenge Group. We are eager to share our story, process, and solutions with architects and health leaders. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Unearth the truths and myths of infection prevention.
  • Explore other industries for healthcare-acquired infection solutions.
  • Identify the importance of collaborative design.
  • Discuss known and found HAI-prevention barriers in the implementation phase of a project.

Speaker(s):
  • Paula Wright, RN, BSN, CIC, Director, Infection Control Unit, Massachasetts General Hospital
