Surviving the Next Tsunami of Healthcare Reform


The 2020 election may result in another tsunami for healthcare regardless of who comes out on top. Get an inside look at the technologies, politics and other disruptors that will influence our healthcare system.

Suburbanization of Healthcare:
  How Growth along Key Corridors are Reshaping Healthcare in the Region
  Follow the rooftops is the mantra for strategic healthcare planners. Yet, building a smaller urban-style hospital in the “burbs” may not be the best solution for costs, time, and quality of care. Explore the many “platforms” for offering care in the suburbs and weigh the pros and cons.
It’s Alive - Revitalizing Urban Hospitals
  More hospital care is now provided in an outpatient setting than inpatient. Yet, the urban hospital has become more critical and complex than ever. How will landlocked hospitals operate and deal with the rate of change? What design, construction, and operational strategies work when one needs to undo the past before building for the future?
  Speakers TBA
Implications of an Aging Construction Workforce – Results from Latest Research
  Nationally, almost 40% of construction workers are over 45 years old, while only 11% are under 24. A recent study examined age distribution by trade of the local workforce. Hear how Boston compares with the nation and the implications for the future. Followed by a discussion with Boston’s leading contractors.

As development advisor, his clients include American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Booz Allen, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Lawrence General Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Novartis, Partners Healthcare and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.
