Don’t wait until after the capital budget has been approved. You need to know how to work with the administration who figures out the scope and applies the budget and schedule. You need to bring in the key stakeholders who will work in and utilize the space to create an open and functional dialog. Architects speak a different language than healthcare workers, so the focus on the goal of patient-centered facilities can get lost in translation in the design/implementation stages. Once plans are handed off to the construction team, expectations are that the plans are accurate and build-ready.

It’s easy for a project to be derailed with so many players involved in the process.

The secret to a well done project is having a project manager from the project’s start to finish. Each stage of a project has its challenges that need to be addressed and resolved. The disciplined Health Well Done approach creates a holistic approach by harnesses the guiding principles to unify all phases of the project. Inclusiveness of all the stakeholders makes the difference between a project being done or done well.

Start now to implement the best practices to united the project stakeholders and insure your project is on time, on budget, and with ease.

Engagement Injection: Sound Practical Advice on Healthy Collaboration

Length of DONE workshop: 90 minutes

According to “2016 Dodge Data & Analytics Smart Market Brief: Optimizing the owner organization” Key findings in owner challenges and opportunities were broken down into two groups; people and policies and technology and processes. In the people and policies area the biggest differences between top-performers and lowest performing organization were related to stakeholder engagement. Of the top performers, only 50% said they were effective at stakeholder engagement. In the lowest-performing organizations 29% were effective.

Clearly there is work to be done in this area.

The Clinical and Construction Guide to Patient Centered Environments

In healthcare projects, teams often work hard to meet the bottom line – the budget and schedule are always priorities and communication falls low on the list. Ultimately, the team’s focus is more on the project’s process rather than the project’s outcome.

In Other Words enables teams to discover the critical role each team member plays in guiding the future of the healthcare system. Our captivating speaker, Cathy Dolan, helps audiences:

  • Learn construction language
  • Develop strategy to reading plans
  • Experience the value of simplifying the technical language to share wisdom and experience across varying expertise
  • Apply team member’s respective wisdom and experience to the project design and construction to benefit the medical professional and, most importantly, the patient

How You Benefit from In Other Words:

It is critical for both project teams and healthcare facility staff to be considered in healthcare projects. Nursing and clinical staff alone play a crucial role in:

  • Improving quality in the built environment
  • Designing spaces to influence HCAHPS scores
  • Engaging patient/staff advisory boards

Understanding design, construction, plans, and member roles in a project is challenging, no matter your area of expertise. In Other Words reveals our simple Three-Step Approach and the essential tools to limit mistakes, decrease waste, and save time and money for everyone involved in a healthcare project.
