The disruptive force of technological advancements has led to medical breakthroughs and improved treatment. But it is a struggle to integrate ever-changing, modern technology into long-term healthcare infrastructure: planning and building takes years, costs and risks are increased, and once completed, a project must stand the test of multiple decades of use.

At the 3rd Annual Canadian Healthcare Infrastructure Forum West, taking place February 26-27 in Vancouver, healthcare (re)development project stakeholders will have the opportunity to develop strategies and best practices to overcome this challenge:

  • Flexible design approaches that enable adaptation over time
  • Budgeting for retrofits when planning maintenance and operations costs
  • Virtual care tools and their impact on healthcare delivery and infrastructure
  • Creating alignment between clinical requirements and project design
  • Interoperability between old and new systems
  • Lessons learned from projects across BC and Canada
