The new AIA guidelines are expected to be issued in March 2006, according to Joseph G. Sprague, FAIA, FACHA, chairman of the AIA healthcare guidelines revision committee and senior vice president of Dallas, Texas-based HKS Inc.Sprague says they received more than 2,000 comments and proposals for the updated guidelines.
"We do have, I believe, this time a lot more evidence basis for changes in this 2006 edition.Which is the direction the FGI has as one of its goals to increase the evidence-based guideline development as opposed to practice and experience," he adds.
In chapter five of the AIA guidelines, for example, ICPs can expect some changes related to the ICRA."ICRA has taken on a little different look," affirms Bartley.
Sprague says the ICRA information has been updated and some improvements to that section have been incorporated."I think it makes the document more user-friendly to the hospitals and the designers, and IC," he says.
Hospitals are having to get creative ..., 3 Feb 2014 [cached]
Hospitals are having to get creative and do more with less, agrees Joseph Sprague, FAIA, FACHA, FHFI, principal and senior vice president at HKS, an architectural firm in Dallas. "Under population health management, systems will manage money through provider networks," Sprague says, adding that he sees a keen focus on improving patient satisfaction as part of construction projects today. Medicare's value-based purchasing program reimburses hospitals in part on patient satisfaction scores. "Patient satisfaction is an important side to reimbursement today," he adds.
Sprague says he was surprised that nearly 35 percent of respondents don't perform commissioning. "I thought that was remarkable," he says.
These results suggest that some hospitals don't see the value of green construction and design, says Joseph Sprague, FAIA, FACHA, FHFI, principal and senior vice president at HKS in Dallas.
"Part of the problem with sustainability is a lot of hospitals don't believe there is an ROI," Sprague says.
