Every year, members of the Built Environment Network (BEN) travel across the country to learn about innovative solutions and best practices in the industry. With an ongoing focus on improving efficiency, productivity, and quality in healthcare design and construction, owners are shifting their paradigm and looking for new solutions. In this webinar you will learn how two health systems are changing the way they design and build their facilities using simulation and technology along with modular and prefabricated products and components. With these changes there is a need to break down silos and improve collaboration in the project delivery process to enable this disruption to occur within the industry. Attend this webinar to gain their perspectives and how they are implementing these changes within the two organizations.   


Learning Objectives

  • Understand how owners are shifting their paradigm and looking for new solutions.
  • Illustrate how health systems are moving to accelerated delivery, standardization, prefabrication and on-site assembly to replace traditional processes.
  • Explore new ways to collaborate and manage transitions that will occur with changes in the supply chain.
  • Discover new partnerships that can create affordable, flexible and adaptable platforms that move the industry forward.
