Today, perhaps more than ever, widespread access to healthcare standards and relevant knowledge bases holds critical importance for healthcare organizations and relevant decision-makers. As the global pandemic unfolds, the healthcare industry is facing unique challenges in meeting quality and safety standards in an environment with elevated operational risks and expectations to perform at a higher level. On the other hand, the complexity of the relevant rules and the regulatory environment necessitates greater collaboration among the industry stakeholders in architectural design, engineering, facility management, and healthcare services in rethinking how to better align often-times conflicting priorities. This live session aims to provide a general overview of the relevant regulatory framework for healthcare facilities.
