This blog introduces a key aspect of Optimized Building: building designs and their component CAMs developed within an overall ecosystem of product solutions.
A core aspect of Optimized Building is to develop an understanding of the overall ecosystem within which a set of buildings will operate and provide solutions to identified challenges. The goal is to first develop a clear understanding of the series of building types that can effectively address the overall needs of the health system, and then to develop specific solutions for each building type.
BuildUSA’s first set of Optimized Building concepts are the “Health Series” (HS). HS provides a building concept to support healthcare delivery from home health through critical care community hospital delivery. The attached brochure introduces schematic designs for optimized solutions for the following 4 building types:
1. Health & Wellness Home: The current Covid pandemic has illustrated the strong need of healthcare and infection control. The Health & Wellness home is an optimized solution that highlights isolation room operation and telemetry connections that will improve our ability to receive healthcare at home and isolate our sick family members to prevent further infection.
2. Spine Building: The ability to rapidly expand or transition their health system is a serious problem in most American communities. Impoverished environments, disaster scenarios, and large-scale public events all offer serious challenges when it comes to delivering quality healthcare to the marketplace. The Spine Building is a solution that provides communities and healthcare systems with the flexibility to modify services on an as-needed basis.
3. Optimized Ambulatory Building (OAB): The OAB will be BuildUSA’s first optimized building. Ambulatory services refer to any healthcare service that is delivered in under 24 hours. As healthcare technology and processes continue to improve, the number of services that can be delivered in this fashion continues to grow. The OAB provides a solution that can be delivered in almost any size and configuration. The OAB will provide both small rural community clinics and large suburban community health systems with ambulatory structures that realize the value proposition of Optimized Building
4. Community Critical Care Hospitals: Over the next 30 years, community care hospitals of various sizes, ranging from 30 beds to 150 beds, will need to be built in communities across the USA. Larger regional, tertiary, academic, and research facilities will most likely remain Boutique (Building Orders) building processes based on their size, the unique nature of their services and institutional conditions. But community hospital delivery that is handling the bulk of day-to-day healthcare will be drastically enhanced by the standardization and best practices of Optimized building
There are countless other building sectors that can be enhanced by Optimized building. BuildUSA is also interested in talking with partners who may want to pursue other parts of the healthcare market and other sectors, such as residential, hospitality, education, warehousing, and more… The possibilities are endless.
