Healthcare Trends from the Frontline:
The Spectrum of Change in the Built Healthcare Market

Sponsored by Interface Engineering

 Interface Engineering Logo

We all know that the healthcare industry is significantly changing, and fast. The Boomer generation is aging, obesity continues to rise, and in this age of instant gratification and constant technological interaction, people want healthcare when they need it  — on demand.

Our esteemed speakers will address these topics:

  • People want convenience and healthcare on demand. This change is behind the growing crop of retail healthcare facilities, such as Zoomcare.
  • Aging Boomers and the elderly don’t want the traditional retirement or continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) that their grandparents had. Innovative CCRCs are improving the ways that seniors feel about themselves, stay active, and live out their final years.
  • Prevention is the new medicine. Wellness centers are significantly gaining popularity, revealing the growing interest in well-being, nutrition, and fitness as a way to decrease hospital visits later.
  • The new federal healthcare policy may significantly affect the A/E/C industry. We will explore how and when.

During this tidal wave of change, A/E/C professionals need to recognize the far-reaching impact that these changes will have on the needs and demands of healthcare professionals and consumers, and consequently, on the design of healthcare facilities and the built environment. This SMPS panel discussion will explore these latest changes in healthcare, and how the A/E/C industry can prepare itself to meet the challenges that are arising.
