5:00 PM Panel Discussion: Smart Hospital Design and Development: A Place Where Architecture and Technology Meet to Enhance Patient Care

An intelligent hospital is more effective, highly efficient, and cost-optimised as it brings together the physical infrastructure, people, clinical processes and administrative workflows with cutting-edge technologies. This panel will discuss the fundamentals of smart hospital design and development, including how:

  • Smart hospitals create new clinical workflows, flexible spaces and new ways of working to achieve greater patient-centricity
  • The four dimensions of being a ‘smart’ hospital embody patient experience, your employees, the organisation and innovation 
  • Facility design is of equal importance to technology, including infrastructure and room design conducive to optimising the management of patients, supplies and devices
  • Smart hospitals improve staff productivity, patient comfort, energy efficiency and capital savings on devices, cabling, commissioning and operations
