Workshop Looks at Moving Data through the Healthcare Facilities Life Cycle


Although progress has been made on the use of building information modeling (BIM) for project delivery, the use of data throughout the facility life cycle is still evolving. This is true for owners of larger and smaller facilities, including federal agencies. During the Healthcare Facilities Life-Cycle Workshop: Moving Data through Early Planning into Design and Operations, to be held Monday, January 6, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm as part of Building Innovation 2014: the National Institute of Building Sciences Conference and Expo, speakers will look at how several agencies in the federal government integrate facility management (FED iFM) into their programs.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Military Health System and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), combined, manage in excess of 210 million square feet of healthcare facilities and just completed a series of projects through the National Institute of Building Sciences centered on planning, design and operations of facilities. The team developed strategic plans, road maps and proofs of concept using BIM, geographic information systems (GIS) and facility management (FM).

The team also created a strategic plan for the enhancement and sustainment of the Space and Equipment Planning System (SEPS), a health system planning tool jointly developed by DOD and VA, as well as a five-year road map for the Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support Facility Management (DMLSS-FM).

The results of these projects have implications for BIM, GIS, FM and open standards. The intent of this full-day workshop is to share the results of these studies. Another important intent is to engage others in the healthcare industry, both in the federal and private sector, in a plan of action for the future.

The Workshop will introduce a strategic vision for FED iFM; share the results of current federal agency initiatives that are striving for the FED iFM vision; engage with private sector owners, architects and professional organizations to build a bridge of collaboration and shared interests in achieving the FED iFM vision; and enlist technology service providers to build platforms, applications (apps) and app marketplaces to access agency data repositories and to foster and enable the realization and success of the FED iFM vision.
