Seismic shifts in the regulatory environment, growing patient populations, and ever-changing technology require today’s engineering, facilities management, construction, safety, and security professionals to stay abreast of all of these factors and adapt to them accordingly. Working collaboratively across departments to gain necessary input and buy-in, building trust with outside business partners and expanding knowledge is critical to the success of those delivering healthcare services. These sessions will address topics and trends in healthcare engineering, construction, and maintenance to offer insights on best practices and new solutions. Topics will include a Joint Commission update, focus on improving the patient experience through facilities, the importance of capital budget planning and facilities maintenance plans, trends in creating healing environments, practical considerations for future proofing medical equipment and technologies, and facility sourcing practices.
