Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo Fosters Collaboration & Innovation in Annual Chicago Conference

The Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo is the original event that examines the trends in healthcare and the trends in healthcare design as one single movement.  Industry leaders from design firms to healthcare owners come together for three days of education and collaboration.  The Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo will take place September 30 - October 2, 2014 in Chicago with pre-conference events on September 29, 2014.

Resonating through the event is the theme of Building Connections.  The Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo is known as a collaborative environment where connections are formed through networking opportunities, sparked by creative ideas, and answering the challenges of attendees by connecting them with solution providers or expert speakers.  A hallmark of the event is the willingness of attendees to look past competition and share ideas to further the mission of turning brilliant design into improved healthcare delivery.

Building Connections is also echoed by keynote presenter John S. Milne, MD, MBA, FACEP, Founder and CEO, Avnew Health.   Milne will explore the rapid transformation of healthcare delivery and discuss trends including ACO structures, mobile apps, and big data.  “I am incredibly excited to be addressing healthcare planners and facility designers at this year’s Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo” says Milne.  “I hope that through my presentation, they will see the connections between care delivery trends and the built environment and be inspired to transform the way patients experience healthcare”

The conference program will feature sessions presented by leading healthcare facilities and design firms. Case-studies and instructional sessions will tackle issues challenging design teams today including integrating technology, influence of the Affordable Care Act, sustainability, renovation projects, and the task of doing more with less.

Returning for the second year is the Student Charette sponsored by CannonDesign and in partnership with AIA Chicago, the AIA Chicago Healthcare Knowledge Community and The Caritas Project.  Promoting interaction and idea exchange between university students and attendees, this year’s design challenge will be Completely Reimagining Outpatient Health and Wellness Environments. 

A Technology Pavilion featured in the Exhibit Hall will bring big data alive in an enticing visual display where attendees will interact and explore how technologies are helping us view, investigate, analyze data and understand how technology can make a difference for a health system seeking to know their patients and proactively manage their health.   “Two years ago the advisory board of the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo saw a need to bring technology to the exhibit floor” said Gary Collins, Principal, PFB Architects.  “Something that would capture the interest and imagination of the younger tech generation yet offer real solutions for today's Healthcare leaders.  I was fortunate that Jenabeth Ferguson, VP, Symposium Director, and her staff believed in my Technology Pavilion idea and now we are preparing to launch an immersion experience like no other.”  The project is led by Sensory Technologies, Blue Cottage, Power Construction, PFB Architects, KaziaLi Design Collaborative, Koroseal Interior Products, and Interface.
