Re-Thinking the Clinic: Optimizing the Outpatient Environment


Credits: None available.

Health care is increasingly focused on balancing patient expectations with staff efficiency and effectiveness. This session explores the impact the physical environment has on productivity and the relationship between design, human experience, and organizational efficiency. A year-long study conducted in primary and specialty clinics studied the impacts of the building on collaboration, care coordination, staff efficiency, and patient experience. The case study facility combines 11 physician practices into a one-stop-shop, enhancing clinical collaboration and creating a holistic approach to health.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Map clinical workflows of physicians and medical assistants for primary care and specialty care clinics.

2.) Examine how the physical environment impacts productivity and patient throughput in outpatient clinics.

3.) Identify design elements that reduce walking distances and the discrepancy of those distances between clinical teams.

4.) Explore the strategies for reducing real estate costs by consolidating and standardizing clinical modules.

Improving the Patient Experience through Energy to Care


Credits: None available.

ASHE’s Energy to Care program helps participants improve energy management practices and reallocate energy resources into improving patient care. ASHE and the AHA are expanding the program by incorporating a real-time energy management solution. This panel discussion will discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly involved in the development and implementation of the technology. The panel will briefly discuss the development and implementation of the tool before moving on to a robust discussion of the benefits and challenges each panelist has seen when piloting the technology. The panelists will discuss how the tool helped them improve operations and facility management as well as the patient experience.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Identify lessons learned from the development and implementation of the new Energy to Care solution.

2.) Explain best practices for implementing the new solution in health care facilities.

3.) List key aspects of how this technology helped save energy, and how show how savings can be reallocated into patient care.

4.) Discuss how using advanced technology can improve the patient experience.

Is Your Facility Management Team Prepared to Overcome a Catastrophic Event?


Credits: None available.

Too often when a new hospital comes online or a new system or equipment is installed, facility management teams receive a PowerPoint presentation, video, or canned training material. These teams must know exactly what to do the moment an emergency event occurs; how does a video help prepare them? This panel discussion focuses on the importance of equipment training. The tools and tactics discussed will keep facility management teams trained and provide tips on how to onboard new team members.

Learning Objectives:

1.) List training criteria for specifications and RFPs.

2.)  Identify the impacts of unprepared staff in the event of a catastrophic event.

3.)  Describe case studies and scenarios through an interactive audience response session.

4.)  Develop training curricula specific to equipment failure and emergency preparedness.

Planning the Hybrid OR


Credits: None available.

Hybrid operating rooms come in all shapes and sizes and are built for a variety of reasons to meet a variety of clinical functions. This session will compare and contrast four hybrid ORs, each distinct in size, shape, and equipment and each designed to meet the needs of a specific subspecialty. The session will identify common elements, elements that define a hybrid OR, and the special requirements that influenced design. Attendees will leave with a checklist for hybrid OR projects.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Define a hybrid OR is and how it differs from other procedure rooms.

2.) Identify room planning strategies for both specialized needs and to provide flexibility.

3.) Assess special systems considerations and coordination for imaging, HVAC, lighting, and ancillary equipment.

4.) Describe the special hurdles that these rooms present and how to address them. 

Speaker(s):

Test Your Code Knowledge – An Interactive Q&A Discussion of Regulatory Codes


Credits: None available.

Understanding regulatory codes is essential for proper maintenance of a health care facility. Recent editions of the codes have introduced new requirements that can ease the difficulties of maintaining a facility, if used properly. Test your knowledge with a live code quiz on NFPA 101®, NFPA 72, and NFPA 99, including an open discussion of questions with a lower percentage of correct responses.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Apply requirements of the NFPA 101 2012 Edition, as adopted by accrediting organizations.

2.) Describe new code requirements in NFPA 101 2015 and 2018 editions, NFPA 72 2016 Edition, and NFPA 99 2012 Edition.

3.) Assess personal comprehension of regulatory codes based on correct responses to seminar questions.

4.) Identify top code misinterpretations in various NFPA codes, including recent editions of NFPA 101, NFPA 72, and NFPA 99.
