10:40 AM CASE STUDY: Design Considerations for the Construction of a HIMSS Level 6 Digital Hospital

Complexity around the construction of new hospitals in the 21st century is ever increasing, particularly if we seek to achieve HIMSS certification with an EMR upon opening. Achieving HIMSS 6 is often dependent upon the design of the facility and ensuring that technology, EMR and hospital design come together in perfect unison. The much-anticipated Victorian Heart Hospital is a prime example of this emerging trend to incorporate technology in design from the get go. In this session, Rod will discuss:

  • Aligning the building program with the ICT program
  • Specific design considerations required when implementing technology that will support EMR and a HIMSS Level 6 build
  • Key considerations and benefits of planning and designing rooms specifically for telemedicine, telehealth and other future trends

10:10 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Device Integration and Mobility Solutions – Establishing Metrics for ROI and Benefits Realisation

Technology is the driving force for increased access to healthcare. Some healthcare providers are now exploring opportunities to adopt and adapt mobile technologies to a clinical environment, thus setting the foundation for greater device integration, simplifying clinical workflows and improving patient care and clinical engagement. However, such investment requires time, scrutiny and resources. How can organisations ensure an ROI in the long-run?
  • Establishing metrics for ensuring ROI
  • Core best practice principles that should define your benefits realisation management framework
  • Innovations in mobile technology and device integration with reference to current case studies and speculation around the benefits, challenges and implications
