Catch the Early Bird Savings for 
Safety First! Proactive Design and the CHD Safety Risk Assessment Toolkit Workshop

Location: Hilton Penn Station
Newark, New Jersey

Date: July 23-24, 2015

Early Bird Registration - $475.00
After June 26 - $575.00



If you’ve ever pulled the “push” handle of a door, you’ve experienced how building design can influence what you do.  The healthcare facility design process is complex and requires juggling many different types of information to make informed and balanced decisions that impact outcomes.  Where does safety fit and how does it become a focus? This interactive workshop will allow participants to:

  • learn about the newly developed CHD Safety Risk Assessment toolkit
  • understand key issues associated with six safety areas (infection control, patient handling, falls, medication safety, behavioral health, security)
  • gain hands-on experience using the tool in a hypothetical renovation project
  • interact with a faculty of subject matter experts

Designed to support the requirements of the 2014 FGI Guidelines for Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities, the new CHD Safety Risk Assessment toolkit is a research-based, proactive approach to new construction and renovation in health care settings.

Explore How and Why the Military Health System Transformed to a Patient Centered Medical Home Model of Care 

Thursday, June 25, 2015
11:00 am Pacific / 2:00 pm Eastern

The Military Health System (MHS) includes over 300 medical centers, hospitals and clinics located worldwide on Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps installations.  These 300 military treatment facilities (MTFs) serve over 3.3M active duty service members, retirees and their families. In 2011, the MHS began transforming over 440 primary care practices within MTFs into the Patient Centered Medical Home models of care and, at the same time, adopted NCQA PCMH standards to establish consistent tri-service operating principles.  As a result, the MHS has been able to standardize business and clinical operational workflow, appointing/scheduling templates, staffing models, performance measures, goals and a capitated revised financing model.

This webinar will discuss how existing primary care practices had to be redesigned to be more patient-centered and better support efficient team-based workflow, embedded specialists and enhanced access clinics.  Redesign engaged multiple business, medical and architecture areas subject matter experts, who developed, piloted, tested and revised a standard primary care clinic model.  For more webinar information including learning objectives, click here.
