Now Available On-Demand

Living through a renovation is cumbersome … even more so if you’re taking care of hundreds or thousands of sick patients while construction is being done. Those capital improvements demand communication, collaboration, and the need to adapt to new care models, from professionals who might not be directly associated with a capital program, but impacted by them. This may include doctors, nurses, administrators, housekeeping, etc.

This adds to the complexity of project design and coordination, which requires more time and resources from the capital team. With an agile Project Management Information System (PMIS) and clearly documented policies / procedures, communications and data can be better centralized, standardized and managed, which translates into stronger interactions with all stakeholders.

Join Kahua and OnIndus as they explore the world of collaboration and how capital planning teams can keep everyone involved and informed, regardless of the size of the hospital system.
