5 Trends Affecting the Next 10 Years of Healthcare Facility Design & Construction

Anticipating change is hard. And it’s even harder because there are so many things happening in our world that are affecting healthcare facility planning, design, and construction. What does the future hold? No one really knows, but looking at trends helps us have a better idea of what we should be paying attention to right now. In this session, healthcare design knowledge expert and industry observer Sara Marberry explores five prevailing tendencies that are gaining momentum and could have long-term implications on healthcare facilities in the near future and beyond.

The Retail Health Arms Race…and Where One Medical Fits In

Large drug chains and mass retailers are not satisfied with just being in the immediate clinic segment of the $4.3 trillion healthcare industry. They have much broader plans to become a significant force in the provision of non-acute healthcare and wellness, and usher in a new era of convenient and accessible care to a huge portion of the US.

We will take a look at the developments and strategies of these disruptive forces in healthcare with a focus on the new direction of primary care provider, One Medical.

The pandemic might be “over,” but the various challenges it has created around supply chain disruptions, long lead times, and escalating costs still have not abated. As healthcare construction leaders find themselves facing down another year of high inflation, how is this impacting their capital projects? Likewise, how is the current inflationary environment, recession concerns, and budget cuts  impacting capital planning over the next 5 years? Expect a candid discussion as your peers get real about the biggest challenges they face today.

When Your Only Tool is a Hammer

Facility managers are the multi-tool of the engineering department. They’re only one person, and they’re expected to be smart about finance, skilled with building systems, savvy about human resources, and synced up with compliance. They interact with everyone from the boiler room to the board room. Today’s facility manager needs emotional intelligence; but what is it?

1. Managing the Owners’ Side of Capital Projects

As anyone who has ever tried to manage a manager can attest, coaching upwards is not always easy. During this session, Brian Holmes will share some of his own strategies for how he manages the owners’ side of the table when dealing with capital projects – getting them to make decisions and actually stick with them, developing soft skills as a manager, fostering an open environment where issues and frustrations are communicated early on, working closely with the architects and project managers as a cohesive team, and more. You may want to vent, but come to learn!

2. Strategies for System-Wide Standardization

As health systems grow across multiple states and regions, acquired health systems need to be merged into existing ones, and newly formed health systems need to establish a whole new identity distinct from the merged legacy systems, system-wide standardization is critical. One of Kyle Rutherford’s big focuses is standardization: having a set of standards across all of CHRISTUS Health, including branding and visual identifiers that tie back to corporate across all facilities throughout multiple states. During this session he will share his own standardization strategies in an open-format, participatory discussion.

3. Making Healthy Spaces with Environmentally Optimized Digital Twins

In this interactive roundtable, we’ll utilize the latest rapid reality capture technology, including environmental sensors, to demonstrate how complete healthcare systems can now be digitized with unprecedented speed and quality. We’ll place Enstoa’s sensors at selected points in the space we are in and collect environmental data such as temperature, pressure, lighting, etc. We will use that captured data to discuss what it means and brainstorm how it can be incorporated within a large ecosystem of the digital twin.
