ACHE is an international professional society of more than 48,000 healthcare executives who lead hospitals, healthcare systems and other healthcare organizations
America's healthcare systems face substantial and well-documented challenges
In response to theses complex challenges, healthcare executives are developing a collection of creative strategies in various areas of resource management.
Many of these resourceful new approaches impact the built environment in which healthcare is delivered; and conversely, the built environment impacts the effectiveness with which the new strategies are executed.
It is critical that our health-focused buildings do their part
The purpose of this program is to establish an ambitious and energetic dialog between the healthcare executives responsible for creating strategy and those responsible for the built environment in which strategiesare executed.
ACHE will survey their membership to determine:
1Which current active strategies they consider most pressing…
2Which of those strategies do they believe contains a built environment component?
3Which of their members would be willing to briefly interact with the HIR Board to discuss how to create healthcare buildings that more aggressively support strategy execution.
Armed with the ACHE survey results, in partnership with our four universities, HIR will develop a program that describes a conceptual framework for improvement along with recommended specific action items.
This program will produce a series of white papers…which will be published in relevant professional media….. along with presentations at selected professional events.
Properly executed, this program will give birth to a robust industry debate resulting in built environments that more aggressively support corporate strategy.
