Design teams are missing opportunities to incorporate technologies and building systems solutions that improve patient care and save lives. Predictive fall prevention systems, building systems integrations, infection control dashboards, predictive analytics, remote monitoring, mobile healthcare units, and virtual care are often viewed outside of the design process and considered an owner-furnished IT/biomed issue. Exposing our healthcare clients to current design trends and options helps them think beyond how they are currently delivering care by providing informed decisions and comprehensive designs. This webinar will evaluate design integration of varied technologies being utilized in many facilities that design teams can implement to dramatically improve patient outcomes.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand the current and future technologies positively impacting patient safety.
  • Evaluate missed opportunities for integration of technology into design that can improve patient outcomes.
  • Review examples of facility design that integrates technology that provides avoidance of patient safety events and associated ROIs.
  • Identify design strategies to help hospitals and design teams evaluate technologies that meet their specific clinical needs.
