Innovative Healthcare Design Concepts to be Presented at InSites Build 2015 Conference

Industry-leading event, hosted by Intelligent InSites, to showcase lean design and technology solutions supporting quantified healthcare.

Fargo, ND – August 3, 2015 – Intelligent InSites Inc., the leading provider of operational intelligence for healthcare, will host its industry-leading event, InSites Build 2015, September 28-30, 2015, in Fargo, ND.

The InSites Build 2015 conference is designed for healthcare providers, industry analysts, and solution providers to share their results and vision – through presentations, learning labs, panels, and networking – for reducing healthcare costs and improving the quality of care by leveraging innovative technologies and processes.

During InSites Build 2015, attendees will hear from architect firms and health system leaders the best ways to design acute care and clinic facilities to drive more coordinated care, maximize care delivery space, and deploy new technologies, such as RTLS.

The following learning opportunities related to innovative healthcare design concepts will be available at InSites Build 2015:


Facility Tour – Cure for the Common Clinic

As a part of InSites Build 2015, attendees will tour Sanford Health’sstate of the art Moorhead Clinic to see firsthand how Sanford Health is using innovative technologies, such as an RTLS-enabled clinic flow application, to efficiently deliver patient care in an clinic environment. The 49,000-square-foot clinic, designed by JLG Architects, is equipped with 48 clinic exam rooms and has space for future expansion. In this new, patient-centric care delivery model, patients arriving at the clinic bypass the waiting room and go directly to their assigned exam room where members of the care team come to them to deliver care. The clinic’s lean design also enhances collaboration by providing a new style of “team space” where physicians, nurses and other staff interact to deliver coordinated patient care. Using smart design and lean process improvement, the number of waiting room chairs per doctor at Sanford’s Moorhead Clinic was reduced from 6.2 to 2.8. In addition, the average number of minutes for a patient’s first contact with a nurse was reduced from 5 to 2 minutes.


Educational Session – Designing New Facilities to Achieve Operational Excellence

During this session, you will hear from innovative architect firms on new trends in lean healthcare design, including self-rooming, no-waiting rooms, universal patient rooms, and on-stage/off-stage flow. Healthcare providers will also share lessons learned from implementing these new concepts to enhance care coordination and patient outcomes.


Healthcare Design and Technology Lab – Transforming the Experience through Smart Space, Technology, and Process Design

Intelligent InSites, in partnership with premier sponsor JLG Architects, will also provide an opportunity for experiential learning in the Healthcare Technology and Design Lab. There, conference attendees will see examples of recent advances in care delivery, gain first-hand experience in innovative design methods, and cast their votes for the next areas to target for healthcare transformation. In addition, proven innovations such as RTLS, smart beds, nurse call, infection control, and patient-centered care coordination will showcase how the convergence of design thinking in space, technology, and process can drive improvements in patient safety and satisfaction.

“We are excited to be working with JLG Architects and our customers and partners to give healthcare professionals a unique experience in which they can see first-hand how far we have recently come in operational innovations, and directly shape future transformational efforts to improve efficiency and the patient experience,” said Shane Waslaski, President and CEO of Intelligent InSites. “We believe that through InSites Build we can nourish the community that is passionate about driving transformation through quantified healthcare.”
