11:30 AM The Power of Resourcefulness: How Alfred Health is Redeveloping Health Facilities in a Smart and Practical Fashion to Improve Workflows

In an environment where hospital infrastructure is becoming increasingly unsustainable, it’s imperative that health executives make smarter resourcing decisions and embed this mindset in their culture. Alfred Health is doing just that by putting resourcefulness at the forefront of their design and development strategy for the next 30 years. Paul will discuss key hospital projects including the Emergency and Trauma Centre redevelopment and their new Trauma Ward that adopt this mindset and achieve workflow efficiency and better health outcomes without breaking the bank. Learn how to:

  • Build intelligent contemporary workflows into the physical spaces to streamline processes and administration, with reference to lessons learned in redesigning their emergency departments 
  • Integrate contemporary technology at the bedside to improve care and experiences, such as auto dispensing machines in the ward to reduce medication errors 
  • Incorporate sustainable design elements into a Brownfield site to ensure a sustainable design
