In 2012, Kaiser Permanente named two firms, Mazzetti and Aditazz, as winners of their Small Hospitals Big Ideas competition. The intended prize was the opportunity to design a new hospital embodying the principles of the winning submission. Facing the complication of two winners, along with a radically changed health care business environment, Kaiser changed course. Now, bringing together the two winning firms, Kaiser is transforming the way that health care buildings are planned, designed, manufactured, and erected. This session will enable attendees to:
Describe how the health care business planning process and health care design process are being transformed through digitization.
Explore how Kaiser is bringing new approaches to health care building sustainability to realize its next generation of health care design.
Discuss techniques for collaboration among individuals and teams from diverse backgrounds.
Apply the planning and design tools being used in the Kaiser project to your own facility.
