Lessons Learned from Designing, Building and Operating one of Australia's most Advanced Healthcare Facilities

Lessons Learned from Designing, Building and Operating one of Australia's most Advanced Healthcare Facilities

It goes without saying, the bigger a project, the more complex it is, and hospitals, with their enormous budgets, multi-year timeframes and thousands of stakeholders - whether redeveloping or building new – are by their very nature an expensive, complex and time consuming venture that pose hundreds of challenges. It is these challenges, and the reaction and planning of a project delivery team to them, that ultimately impacts the seamlessness of hospital infrastructure delivery.


With this in mind, ahead of the Health Facilities Design and Development Summit and Australian Healthcare Week 2019 we chat to Paul Lambert, Executive Director, Activation, New Royal Adelaide Project at the Central Adelaide Local Health Network in South Australia.

It goes without saying, the bigger a project, the more complex it is, and hospitals, with their enormous budgets, multi-year timeframes and thousands of stakeholders - whether redeveloping or building new – are by their very nature an expensive, complex and time consuming venture that pose hundreds of challenges. These challenges are only made harder with the integration of new digital processes which impact traditional workflows and operations.  

It is these challenges, and the reaction and planning of a project delivery team to them, as well as the stakeholder engagement strategies harnessed that ultimately impacts the seamlessness of hospital infrastructure and IT project delivery.

The Top Trends Driving Australia’s Healthcare Sector in 2019 and Beyond

The Top Trends Driving Australia’s Healthcare Sector in 2019 and Beyond

While infrastructure projects and technological advancements will continue to revolutionise care delivery, patient experience and traditional workflows, with 2018 coming to a close what new trends are set to shape healthcare in 2019 and beyond?

To understand and answer this question, ahead of the 9th Annual Australian Healthcare Week Summit 2019, we surveyed 116 Australian and New Zealand healthcare professionals from a cross-section of the industry, to find out what they think the major are the innovations, challenges and opportunities that will fundamentally transform healthcare in the coming years.

The Great Debate: Who is the Client of the Hospital? The Patient, or the Clinician?

The Great Debate: Who is the Client of the Hospital? The Patient, or the Clinician?

Who should healthcare facilities be designed for? The patient, or the clinician? This question is undoubtedly a stumbling block for many. While patient centricity, comfort and convenience is key to optimal care, if clinicians aren’t kept in mind through the design and development phase of any project, whether structural or technological, how are they expected to effectively navigate the infrastructure and deliver care?

Ahead of Australian Healthcare Week, and The Great Debate, held on the Health Facilities Design and Development stage, we speak to two expert speakers, Ian Town, Chairman of the Christchurch Health Precinct Advisory Board and Gordon Bingham, Chief Nursing Information Officer at Allied Health. Harking back to their high school debating years, our panel aims to enlighten, encourage deeper thinking, offer critical perspectives, and maybe even coerce you into seeing their point of view.
