Meeting Future Healthcare Demands through Energy Efficient, Flexible and User Group Centric Design
As the Australian population grows, combined with changing needs of the Australian Health System, the necessity to provide facilities that can cope with that growth is increasing. If the facilities within each region cannot accommodate the population it will leave patients at risk of not having the right medical assistance available, putting those patients at risk of their health deteriorating. The key is for the to develop Hospitals, Mental Health facilities and other health infrastructure through adopting a user centered approach to health facilities design, and embrace technology such as Building Information Modelling and other emerging technology that can assist in the planning, design, procurement and delivery of the digital hospital and other health facilities.
Why is Designing and Building Energy Efficient, Sustainable and Cost Effective Facilities so Important to Ensuring Future Healthcare Demands are Met?
As the Australian demographic changes so does the needs of patients, staff and visitors that use them so maximising the potential of a limited budget is becoming much harder. Whether you are planning, expanding, building, maintaining or retrofitting a health facility it is critical that you keep tight control of costs and maximize funding in the right areas.
As many health projects move through their lifecycle from the business and master plan stages to design, construction and operational phases, Health Facilities Design and Development 2013 will provide an eye opening educational forum where knowledge, new ideas, best practice and real world learning experiences can be shared amongst healthcare specialists. Providing case studies specific to Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory, the event will highlight the specific challenges, techniques and methodologies on new and existing facilities.
Ensuring User Group Focused Outcomes and Improving Recovery Times:
Sustainable design, construction and development of health facilities is key to achieve patient centricity and meet the government guidelines; it is therefore essential that you fully understand how to plan, design, construct, redevelop, manage and co-ordinate with all stakeholders effectively throughout the process.
Health Facilities Design and Development is a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals, construction contractors, architects, consulting engineers, state and federal government to share insights and strategies on how to collaborate effectively to achieve the shared objectives.
This event will share invaluable information from organisations that have developed solutions to successfully manage and overcome these issues.
- Managing user groups through advanced briefing andcommunication strategies
- Innovative design and construction techniques to deliverprojects on time and within budget
- Minimising disruption and keeping control of infection throughout the project
- Future proofing and master planning to accommodate growth and redevlopment
How to Develop the Best Facilities and Maximise Budget:
These sessions will cover the central challenges faced by all stakeholders involved in the planning, design, development and commissioning of hospital facilities! Presentations, panel sessions and discussions will combine to cover themes such as future proofing, delivery models, infection control, funding, design challenges, innovative techniques/technologies and more. You will hear a range of experiences and perspectives from across Australia and overseas, all maintaining a case study focus with learning outcomes that can help your project with practical advice and insights into common pitfalls and areas of difficulty.
