Session Description

Advancing healthcare technologies and integrated building systems are constantly changing clinical operations and the spaces we design. Frequently the impact of technology is missed during master planning, space planning, and design. Artificial intelligence, augmented reality, 3-D printing, remote monitoring, and virtual care are just a few technologies driving operational changes that improve patient safety and healthcare outcomes. Developing master plans, space programs, designs, and project budgets that are capable of addressing evolving technologies are key to the success of long-term facility planning. This session will challenge our traditional planning techniques to incorporate the unpredictable technical elements of advanced technologies.
