Titanic Healthcare Shifts That Will Show Up in Tomorrow's Healthcare Facilities
November 12, 1:30–2:30 pm EST
Perspectives from three different regions of U.S. on huge shifts they’re seeing in healthcare delivery and how they’ll impact design, construction,renovation, and real estate decisions going forward.
-Northwell Health is New York's largest healthcare provider, serving NYC, Long Island and Westchester with 23 hospitals and nearly 800 outpatient facilities.
-Advocate Aurora is 9th largest, integrated not-for-profit health system in the U.S. with some 500 care sites in Illinois and Wisconsin.
Over the past few years, health systems have internally debated and executed projects that expand existing hospital campuses or plant new ones to capture market share and expand their brand presence. However, considerable debate remains as to the threshold of adding to an existing campus or developing a smaller additional site. Is there a “right size” for a hospital?
Although the healthcare industry is overflowing with data, the built environment often plays a smaller role in data-driven decision making because of the lack of standardized and comprehensive spatial datasets. By translating floor plans into data that capture qualitative architectural characteristics like privacy, travel distances, and views, this method gives the built environment a bigger voice in decision making that relates design to healthcare performance.
