5:00 PM Panel Discussion: Smart Hospital Design and Development: A Place Where Architecture and Technology Meet to Enhance Patient Care

An intelligent hospital is more effective, highly efficient, and cost-optimised as it brings together the physical infrastructure, people, clinical processes and administrative workflows with cutting-edge technologies. This panel will discuss the fundamentals of smart hospital design and development, including how:

  • Smart hospitals create new clinical workflows, flexible spaces and new ways of working to achieve greater patient-centricity
  • The four dimensions of being a ‘smart’ hospital embody patient experience, your employees, the organisation and innovation 
  • Facility design is of equal importance to technology, including infrastructure and room design conducive to optimising the management of patients, supplies and devices
  • Smart hospitals improve staff productivity, patient comfort, energy efficiency and capital savings on devices, cabling, commissioning and operations

12:30 PM Think Big but Start Small: Keeping up with Nursing Informatics and Health ICT in Nursing Practice

For nurses on the floor, their relationship with digital health is very different to a managers’ experience with digital. In order to successfully integrate technology into daily nursing practice, hospitals must close the gap in digital literacy and capacity. With 1,700 nurses and midwives in Bendigo Hospital, they are going back to the basics to close this skills gap and ensure solid foundations for digital.

Learn how to:
  • Embed and integrate nursing tools into the EMR to ensure easy access to information at point of care
  • Upskill workforce capability with regular training and mentorship programs to support nurses in their professional development
  • Create visible and transparent leadership to support nurses on the ground and guide them through the digital transformation
