As a Hub of Patient Care, BIDMC’s new inpatient building incorporates the expansion of hospital departments in the adjacent Rosenberg Building, while allowing it to remain in operation throughout construction. The new building is designed to seamlessly expand and enhance the existing programs on the perioperative and radiology floors while providing a new state-of-the-art 158 single patient room bed tower. Public corridors and spaces tie the new inpatient building into the existing campus-wide circulation system, allowing it to serve as a new hub of advanced patient care that will benefit patients and families hospital-wide. As the New Inpatient Building is the first major construction project in nearly 20 years for BIDMC, this session focuses on the challenges of planning for and implementing technologies designed to create a state-of-the art experience while navigating the challenges of an existing technology ecosystem, and culture within an existing campus environment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how to develop an overarching technology theme that sets the tone for all downstream decisions and how to use it as sounding board during design
  2. Understand the technological, process and financial ripple effects that affect not only the project but also the campus technological ecosystem.
  3. Creating a complete structure and process to facilitate informed decision making and collaboration between users and stakeholders.
  4. Develop an enabling strategy for technologies that will not be deployed day 1.
