Health Facility Design and Development Day One: Wednesday, 27 November 2019

Wednesday, November 27th, 2019


2:30 PM Panel Discussion: Overcoming Challenges in Healthcare Procurement to Optimise Clinical Outcomes and Cost Savings

Supply chains can account for as much as 30% of total hospital costs, which can have a profound impact on procurement effectiveness across capital works and Goods and Services. But how can hospitals deliver high-quality but affordable services in a continually changing market that faces sustainability pressures? This panel will explore key challenges, considerations and strategies to drive procurement effectiveness and better visibility to optimise clinical outcomes and cost savings. Learn how to:

  • Maintain the dynamic balance between reducing costs and providing high quality care
  • Explore intestate opportunities to collaborate and achieve commercial efficiencies 
  • Redesign your supplier-contractor relations through more collaborative governance 
  • Leverage innovation, market intelligence and data in procurement

Health Facility Design and Development Day Two: Thursday, 28 November 2019

Thursday, November 28th, 2019


12:00 PM Ensuring Caboolture Hospital is Fit-for-Purpose through Design Optimisation

The Caboolture Hospital redevelopment is a matrix of new and refurbished areas designed to meet forecasted growth of 5,500 patients per month by 2021/22. To ensure a fit-for-purpose design, Sam’s team dedicated 3-4 months to refining the design before going to market. Learn how to:

  • Reduce risk and ultimately future costs by involving clinicians and hospital managers in the design
  • Ensure that the development seamlessly co-exists with existing infrastructure
  • Leverage the skill and input of your builder and architect to ensure a sustainable and relevant design
