Attending the Healthcare Design Conference this month? We’ll be presenting two different topics:
Multimodal Image and the Guided Surgical Suite–Cross Sharing from Translational Research & Clinial Outcomes
Cut Your Losses—How Everyday Details Undermine Good Energy Efficiency Intentions
Multimodal Image and the Guided Surgical Suite—Cross Sharing for Translational Research & Clinical Outcomes with Sho-Ping Chin and Wes Schwartz
Sho-Ping and Wes will be joined by Gail Dahlstrom, the Vice President, Supply Chain and Facilities Management at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. The new addition at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center coalesces state-of-the-art imaging and surgery in a unique multi-use inter-operative suite. A seminal feature is the capability to use the operating room on human and animal subjects—a functionality that exists nowhere in the world and required a great deal of foresight to plan for developing technologies. Presenters will share critical considerations for this model including: design of seminal image-guided technology; criteria required to safely accommodate both humans and animals; fiscal, facility and operational efficiency derived from cross sharing of high cost equipment and systems; and designing for the unknown when the parameters are still evolving.

Cut Your Losses—How Everyday Details Undermine Good Energy Efficiency Intentions with Michael Hinchcliffe and Andrea Love.
This research reports on how various building walls systems dramatically under perform – posing potential long-term risks to indoor air quality – and how simple detailing solutions can provide dramatic improvements in energy efficiency and wall system integrity. Presenters will focus on the research findings from the evaluation of three recently completed healthcare buildings and will explore a number of common problem areas to illustrate the impact of easily achievable improvements. The presentation sheds light on an important yet hidden problem for new building – especially as marginal increases in efficiency become more important to cost reductions and healthy interior environments.
