At Healthcare Design (HCD) Conference 2017, we’re serving up a great line-up of sessions featuring timely info on patient-centered smart buildings, energy efficient design case studies, and even international insight for solving domestic healthcare facility challenges. Innovation. Insight. Inspiration.

Don’t Let Your Smart Building Forget the Patient
The “smart” building, one that uses a building management system to monitor and adjust HVAC and other systems to make the building more energy-efficient, has become a well-recognized and expected part of new healthcare construction. But can the smart building become even smarter? Can it be integrated with other technologically driven systems to be not just a smart building but a clinically smart building? In this session, presenters will explore how the Internet of Things and clinical systems can work together to positively impact clinical operations and patient experiences.
The Swedish Issaquah Campus: Five Years Later
Room: Naples 1-3 Session Number: E50
Mazzetti+GBA Mechanical Engineer and Energy Design Manager Jeremy McClanathan, PE, BEMP, HFDP, LEED AP
The Swedish Issaquah Campus is a greenfield hospital located in the Seattle suburb of Issaquah, Wash. Soon after opening, patient and staff satisfaction scores were high and shops and restaurants located in the hospital’s common spaces were a strong draw to the surrounding community. Five years after opening, a POE has revealed how well the campus achieved its initial design goals related to patient experience and wayfinding, integration into the surrounding community, materials selection and durability, and building systems performance. Representatives from the design team and the owner will discuss successes and lessons learned.

Crossing International Borders to Problem-Solve Healthcare Facilities Headaches
Session Number: E110
Mazzetti+GBA CEO Walt Vernon, PE, LEED AP, EDAC; IFHE President (Mexican Hospital Engineering) Briseyda Resendiz Marquez; IFHE Vice President Douwe Kiestra; IFHE Vice President Darryl Pitcher
Too often healthcare systems seek to solve problems within their own siloes rather than reaching out to peers struggling with the same issues. The same often happens on the global scale; U.S. healthcare engineers remain in the dark on the work being undertaken around the world to solve facility performance challenges. This session presents a unique opportunity to learn about the significant efforts being undertaken around the world to address challenges in improving healthcare facilities’ energy efficiency, technology integration and more—as well as opportunities to better collaborate with your cutting-edge peers from around the world. Bring your questions, and suggestions for improving global cooperation, for this panel of international experts.
