Cost effective design & construction to improve efficiency & healthcare outcomes
With enormous investment in building new healthcare facilities and expanding or updating existing facilities across Asia, hospital asset owners are constantly looking for innovative ways to design health facilities to meet the needs of an ageing/increasingly urban and demanding population. Health facilities now need to be modern, comfortable, aesthetic, efficient, safe and accessible. These characteristics demand huge investment not only into new developments but also in renovating and retrofitting existing facilities.
Health Facilities Design and Development Asia is a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals, construction contractors, architects, consulting engineers, and state and federal government to share insights and strategies on how to collaborate effectively to deliver the shared objectives.
Drawing on the expertise of healthcare providers, architects, structural engineers and construction specialists from the region, Health Facilities Design and Development Asia will feature case study examples of new-build and retrofit health facility developments specific to Malaysia, Singapore, India, Hong Kong, Philippines, Indonesia the US and China. This event will provide you with the strategies required to ensure successful project development and completion.
With spending is expected to triple to US$600 billion in China by the year 2015 and healthcare spending on information technology in India is set to exceed US$250 million in the year 2014.
With such rapid development in Asia, the Health Facilities Design & Development Asia will be the perfect platform to ensure the best possible outcome for health facilities throughout the region.

On the other front, the health facility asset owners are seeking to expand and consolidate their reach and revenues by successfully commercialising.
Listed are a few challenges faced by them in the process:
- Adding new health facilities in tier I, II and III cities
