For Prospective Members: The Ambulatory Facility of the Future
Interested in how the changing health care economy will affect ambulatory facility strategy? Join us for a complimentary webconference examining how delivery system reform, technological innovation, and macroeconomic trends are reshaping health systems’ ambulatory care strategy.
Facility design expert Fred Bentley will discuss strategic considerations around the distribution of outpatient facilities and the pacing of development, as well as three key focus areas for ambulatory facilities under accountable care:
- 1. Expanding the front end of the delivery system: Projects include developing low cost, accessible primary care settings, linking patients and providers via virtual clinics, shifting emergency care to satellite facilities, and experimenting with freestanding observation units.
- 2. Rationalizing procedural and imaging capacity: Projects include consolidating imaging sites to maximize asset utilization, identifying the “nice to have” vs. the “need to have” imaging modalities, preparing ASCs for the next wave of outmigration, and creating short-stay surgical facilities.
- 3. Reinforcing the disease management enterprise: Projects include installing the base infrastructure for medical homes, developing outpatient “one-stop-shops” for the chronically ill, bringing the continuum of care to the patient’s home, and engineering “smart homes” for the elderly.
This call is open to all architecture and facility planning executives. For more information, please contact Megan Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-266-5806.
