Clinical Technology Solutions
Connected care begins here.
CLINICAL TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS
Our experience has taught us the impact medical equipment and clinical technology have on healthcare facility design, construction and operations. Medical equipment, IT infrastructure, security, audiovisual and clinical communications are as essential to a healthcare facility as its mechanical, electrical and plumbing infrastructure.
Our Clinical Technology Solutions (CTS) team employs an innovative approach to medical equipment and technology planning by collaborating with the design team to ensure seamless alignment with the architectural design. Our process focuses on understanding your clinical goals and operational objectives to establish a strategy. In partnership with the design team, this strategy is then translated into solutions and specific technical requirements and tactics. We guide the decisions, alternatives and milestones necessary to integrate complex technologies and ensure the desired outcomes are aligned with your vision.
Our team’s professionals have been in the medical equipment planning and clinical technology consulting industry for more than 20 years. Each has delivered a broad range of medical equipment planning, IT design, procurement and installation services for leading healthcare providers across the globe. Our services have been recognized by nationally ranked healthcare providers for quality, efficiency and technical delivery.
360 Degree Approach
Medical equipment and clinical technology are growing increasingly complex. Our 360-degree approach extends beyond typical medical equipment planning to encompass comprehensive and specialized knowledge of the IT infrastructure, interoperability, as well as clinical workflow and operational impacts. Our approach also considers the future state, which can accommodate technology advances that have yet to come to market. This approach ensures a robust and feasible plan that fully integrates with the architectural and interior design, saving valuable resources during construction and post-occupancy.
Evidenced-Based & Process-Driven Design
Because we’re part of the architectural design team, we have full visibility into the design process and an understanding of expectations required across disciplines for comprehensive medical equipment planning. We work closely with design teams to ensure effective planning and coordination of all technical aspects of medical equipment, drawings, procurement and installation as well as BIM management. Our experience with this process enables us to anticipate design and production challenges, define solid procurement processes, and ensure timely construction, on-site delivery and installation.
