1 AIA/CES HSW LU

Program Description

Storage location and configuration, if correctly designed, can influence staff functions, staff efficiency, staff productivity, and ultimately patient care. In addition, careful planning can produce marked improvements in inventory control – of prime importance in healthcare facilities today. Learn how to bring storage closer to the point-of-care, closer to the patient — healthcare’s point-of-need.

There are approximately 6,200 acute care hospitals in the United States, many of which are aging facilities in vast need of renovation. A total of 78 million Baby Boomers beginning to retire with increased life expectancies will push the healthcare industry to change the way it delivers services. The advent of ever-changing technology like 4-D ultrasounds and home remote monitoring systems are two great examples. We’ll also examine how evidence-based medicine will drive room design. You’ll also learn how consolidations in healthcare will affect profitability and the use of shared services.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify major storage concerns within specific areas of the Acute Healthcare market
  • Discuss trends that healthcare providers are currently facing and how storage can play a part
  • Identify storage options that maximize efficiency, floor space, reduce constructions costs and allow healthcare professionals to spend more time caring for their patients
  • Identify the elements to consider when planning storage spaces in order to meet customer and regulatory requirements
