    Identification: 2058

    Credits: None available.

    What if the new paradigm for a hospital was that of a proactive health facilitator rather than the more traditional, reactive role? Inherently, this would imply a foundational shift to the programming, design, and operational assumptions associated with a hospital. The Texas Health Resources campus in Frisco will serve as a case study with the objective to exploit this building project’s potential and evolve the current hospital model to more closely reflect a transition toward health, wellness, and preventative care.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Explore the community impact potential of a health facilitator by evaluating site selection and design, place-making architecture, and campus strategies, and a hospital’s reach outward.
    • Identify the responsible design impact of the health facilitator.
    • Assess the user impact opportunity of a health facilitator from the perspectives of the staff, patient, and visitor.
    • Hypothesize the anticipated long-term impact of a health facilitator in a neighborhood.

    Impact of Connected Care on the Built Environment

    Mar 27, 2018 4:10pm ‐ Mar 27, 2018 5:10pm

    Identification: 2027

    Credits: None available.

    More than 8.3 million people receive support from long-term care services. At the same time, the continued focus for hospitals on reducing readmissions is forcing systemic changes. Some health systems are adding aftercare facilities to their own campuses and recognize that communication can improve patient outcomes. Moving communication and monitoring beyond the physical walls of the hospital requires significant changes inside the hospital walls. As health systems push the boundaries of care, the built environment must support this growth.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify new monitoring technologies that will affect workflow and the built environment.
    • Explore examples where health systems are implementing integrated solutions.
    • Discuss industry changes and challenges that are creating the need for new solutions.
    • Assess options facilities should consider in preparation for these technology challenges.
