The patient-centered aspects of health care delivery begin with experienced functional programming. Assessing the clinical and operational needs with those of the patient and staff is a balance of function, form, economy, and time. The ability to apply structured functional programming in the context of a campus master plan is the most appropriate and proven approach. This discussion conveys the value-added attributes of the full continuum of planning for gaps in the system, recruitment, retention, and process change.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the most effective method of functional programming and outline the best methods to determine the key planning units to achieve a safe patient-centric environment .
  • Define how programming differs between facilities needing to be upgraded and facilities and programs starting from scratch and what the regulatory issues entail.
  • Outline the priority attributes and regulatory requirements of a functional program within a health care delivery system, compared to a standalone acute care hospital .
  • Determine the value-added attributes of a functional program and whether standardization prototypes should be considered.
