In the face of higher costs and lower/fixed revenues and rapid changes coming to all aspects of the health care delivery system, health care organizations must reduce their cost structure without compromising their mission. This session will offer guidance on smart planning that adds value to a project and decreases life cycle costs. It will also identify opportunities for designing adaptable, flexible buildings that can respond to the challenges of an unknowable future.
This session will enable attendees to:
Discuss data-driven design, simulation-assisted layouts, information-led decision-making, and optimization of the design process.
Identify the flexibility requirements, time constraints, and budget concerns associated with this type of project approach.
Explain the potential opportunities an uncertain future offers to a project team.
Analyze the merits of modular design, flexible layouts, and adaptable IT infrastructure.
