There’s nothing easy about running a healthcare facility. When new construction comes into play, the list of challenges and complexities only multiplies.
Optimizing efficiencies while planning for longevity and operating on time and within budget is a nearly impossible balancing act — and one that directly impacts patient health.
In fact, everything from real-time location technologies to indoor air quality to environmental control can play a role in reducing hospital-acquired infections, operational inefficiency and staff burnout. It’s a vital connection to make — and the time to make it is before the shovel ever hits the dirt.
Our new e-book, “Healthier Building By Design,” helps you prepare and proceed more intelligently. It provides tips and insights that streamline the process — and gives you the blueprint you need for the results you want. Below is a preview of the key insights from the book:
- Making a plan: Knowing who to plan with is just as important as knowing what to plan for. We’ve outlined the stakeholders you’ll need to reach consensus early on and help enable a smooth, collaborative construction process. We’ve also highlighted the key assessments you should include in order to avoid unnecessary complication and delay.
- Time and money: “Healthier Building By Design” helps you tap into the power of Lean principles to make more effective, more efficient construction decisions. From establishing strong relationships to avoiding overproduction to creating realistic, effective timelines, we help you navigate budgets and schedules to meet expectations and deliver value at every turn. In the process, you’ll adopt a patient-centered approach that focuses on daily operations and quality of care to help keep costs down.
- A healthy dose of innovation: Artificial Intelligence. Biometrics. Air quality control. Breakthroughs in technology are constantly reshaping the healthcare landscape, and the facilities we build within it. “Healthier Building By Design” walks you through some of the latest innovations that improve patient health, enhance and accelerate care delivery and improve how you approach the construction process in the first place.
- The build goes on: Building a long-lasting healthcare facility means committing yourself to continuous improvement. “Healthier Building By Design” helps you prepare for this approach and provides key insights into what to expect — and what to do — after your facility is up and running. It’s an end-to-end overview that helps you create and maintain an efficient, cost-effective workflow and helps enable a healthier, more cost-effective construction process.
