Aligning Infrastructure Decisions with Healthcare Business Plans| August 21, 2018
About the Guide
To effectively control and optimize capital spending on Healthcare facility infrastructure systems, there must be a sound and direct link between the goals of any infrastructure expenditure and the business plan of the facility and its proposed Healthcare services. Misalignment between these two can result in overspending, overbuilding, and ultimately reduction in capital for other, potentially higher return, investments. Adding to the difficulty of the situation, is the increasing need for nimble infrastructure systems that can react to changes in technology, reimbursement models, and other market pressures.
This guide will provide recommendations, advice, and case studies to help Healthcare leaders navigate infrastructure decision making and ultimately align capital spending with facility service goals.
- Be able to define the process components necessary for alignment between business models and infrastructure decision.
- Identify the important components of a facility business model that are part of the facility’s overall success.
- Be able to complete a gap analysis to analyze the consistency of infrastructure decisions vs. a facility business model.
- Be able to construct a successful integration model that optimizes infrastructure decisions with a facility business model.
