The Health Facilities Design and Development Summit will be held during Victoria Healthcare Week 2016.
Australian Healthcare Week held in Sydney in March this year attracted more than 2100 visitors from across the healthcare system and the world.
As average life expectancy continues to rise there is a higher prevalence of people living longer with chronic disease, unsustainable pressure is being placed on the healthcare system. The Health Facilities Design and Development Summit will explore the responses to the challenges faced in the industry, such as the drive towards a more connected digital health system and looking to achieving cost and efficiency savings through private sector partnerships.
This is happening through the design and delivery process and through partnerships with technology innovators in response to future healthcare challenges.
Learning areas at the summit will include:
- The Design and Delivery of Tomorrow’s Healthcare Facilities
- The Hospital of the Future: Redefining the Patient Experience
- Designing and Delivering a Health Precinct that Integrates World Class Healthcare, Research and Innovation, Education and Industry
- The Emergency Department: Considerations for Innovation and Strategic Design
- Understanding the Commissioning Challenges You Will Face in your New or Redeveloped Healthcare Facility
- Integrated Healthcare Design: Transforming the Way we Thing about Lean Hospital Design
- Designing Integrated, Connected and Cooperative Models of Care that Respond and Cater to an Increase in Patients with Long Term Chronic Illnesses
