Intelligent Hospitals Presentation & Discussion
Thursday, May 26, 2022 4:00-5:30 PM CST

The digital transformation has rapidly changed the way we live and the expectations of our life experiences. The consumer lifestyle has become highly personalized and available on-demand from personal wearables, app-based access to information, and intelligent home devices. As healthcare providers continue to improve the patient, provider, and administrator experiences, data and technology are essential.  

  

Our presenters will provide an in-use example of how one hospital is operating as a hospital of the future – today. You will hear about their strategic pursuit of digital transformation initiatives to address patient experience, clinical efficiencies, and operational effectiveness. Our presenters will show how they created digital pathways aligned to clinical workflows and optimized for positive experiences, increased patient access to and utilization of facility services using technology, and promoted safety and improved productivity, coordination, and collaboration of care.   

Making buildings intelligent requires contributions from stakeholders across multiple areas of expertise. The Building Intelligence Group brings all of these folks together, tearing down the silos between trades, departments, and disciplines to network and learn from each other. Join us to learn more about what makes healthcare facilities intelligent and some examples of the current state of the art, some of the hurdles to intelligent building adoption in health care, and how healthcare facilities use technology to communicate building wellness.
