Health Care in the Built Environment Conference Thursday October 27, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), Division of Quality Assurance (DQA), Office of Plan Review and Inspection (OPRI) is excited to announce Health Care and the Built Environment Conference.

The conference will be held on Thursday October 27, 2016 at La Sure's Banquet Hall in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Three components that shape the Health Care Built Environment are health care delivery models, facility design and the regulatory environment. This conference brings together all stakeholders engaged in the infrastructure of health care while addressing the common thread of the regulatory model from planning and construction through occupancy.

Topics presented by national experts in their respective fields:

  • Meeting the expectations of healthcare delivery models in the community as well as the individual through the owner's perspective and strategies related to the regulatory model.
  • How design teams can meet the owner's expectations for the health care facility while meeting the health, safety and welfare as determined by the regulatory model.
  • Gain a better understanding and perspective of the essential components of the regulatory model and the role of the authority having jurisdiction.
  • The role of technology and how a successfully constructed project helps build a portfolio and how it cycles back into the business model.

Registration for the conference will begin in early August. Watch the DQA listserv for the online registration announcement.
