Guidelines for joint initiatives in hospital construction

Regionernes arbejde med pejlemærker og fokusområder i fase I i projektet "Godt sygehusbyggeri - koordination og innovation" har genereret en række konkrete fællesregionale projekter. Fase II i projektet "Godt sygehusbyggeri - koordination og innovation" vil nu fokusere på at identificere og igangsætte fælles initiativer med et konkret udbytte på de områder, hvor det er hensigtsmæssigt for byggeriernes økonomi, kvalitet, fremdrift og effektivitet.

Guideline Project manager Time Schedule
1.  Joint procurement for hospital construction projects

Jens Peter Bjerg, Danish Regions

Project description

Start: September 2011

Ongoing project

2. Medicine

Project manager:

Henrik Eriksen, Project Director for Rigshospitalet's Kvalitetsfonden project


Project secretariat:

Mikkel Brun Pedersen, Group Plan, Development and Quality, Capital Region of Denmark

The aim of the guideline is to ensure that knowledge sharing and experience exchange takes place across regions in relation to the management of medicine at the hospitals, and that opportunities for joint solutions in the area of medical supplies and production are identified.


At the conclusion of the guideline, each region must be aware of regional and current trends in the area of managing medicine in hospitals. The regions working on the centralisation of hospital pharmacies under the Kvalitetsfonden projects will be able to draw on the knowledge of the other regions in this area through the work on this guideline.


The following topics will be dealt with: Logistics and automated medicine solutions, production and preparation of medicine, and quality and coherence in medicine administration. For each topic, the current conditions in the regions and current projects will be examined. In conclusion, the project group will identify areas where joint solutions can be established and where there is a need for more knowledge before decisions are made.

Start: October 2011

End: Late 2012

3. Equipment sterilisation

Project manager:

Henrik Eriksen, Project Director for Rigshospitalet's Kvalitetsfonden project

Project secretariat:

Kristian Fevejle Andersen, Group Construction Management, Capital Region of Denmark

Equipment sterilisation refers to the re-treatment of surgical equipment for repeated use, i.e. the disinfection, packaging and sterilisation of equipment used in connection with operations and treatment.

The aim of this guideline is to help ensure that each region's decisions in relation to equipment sterilisation and management are as well informed as possible in relation to national experiences and development trends in this area.

The project group is made up of a combination of experts, surgeons, public servants and construction representatives from all five regions. Henrik Eriksen (Project Manager, Rigshospitalet) chairs the group.

The work in the project group is based on development trends and analysis of the current situation and plans for equipment sterilisation in the five regions. On this basis, the following nine topic areas have been identified that are considered to be particularly relevant to the current needs and the hospital construction projects:


1) Scope of sterilisation and forms of transport

2) Management and re-treatment of endoscopes

3) Disposable equipment versus reusable equipment

4) Traceability and robot technology

5) Centralised versus local equipment sterilisation

6) Staff training

7) Standardising instrument trays

8) Management and organisation

9) Generic model for estimating the quantity of instruments

The project group is also working with standardisation and innovation through meetings with industry representatives and Public-Private Co-Innovation Partnerships (PPCIPs) in relation to the development of new technologies for tracing instruments in the central sterilisation department and operating theatres.

Project description

Start: November 2011

End: Late 2012

4. Lifetime economics models

Project manager:

Anders Andersen and Christina Carlsen, Danish Regions

The aim is to increase the level of knowledge in the regions on the use of lifetime economics calculation models in the Kvalitetsfonden construction projects, including knowledge of the calculation models already used in the regions and the relevant calculation models on the market.

The project will initially be carried out as an interview study in the regions. This will provide a basis for identifying the regions' use of lifetime economics calculation models and their aspirations in this area. The study will include a special focus on the use of energy optimised solutions.

The results of the study will be discussed in the project group and at a workshop, and provide a foundation for additional work on selected topics, if so desired.

Project description

Start: November 2011

End: April 2012

5. Joint tools for construction processes

Project manager:

Poul Andersen, Chief Advisor, Region of Southern Denmark

The regions want to develop joint tools to manage construction processes.

Existing tools in each region will be registered and made visible for inspiration in all regions on a joint platform.
Tools will be evaluated and ranked with the aim of registering them based on best practices in their respective areas.
The need for any additional tools will be identified and development processes worked out.

The joint platform will be introduced in all regions, including procedures for updating and maintenance.

Project description

Start: September 2011

End: June 2012

6. Establish current best practices at the room level

Project manager:

Inger Kafton, Region of Southern Denmark

Project description

 
 7. Communicate examples of best practices at room level

Project manager:

Marlene W. Würgler, Danish Regions 

Start: January 2012

End: ongoing project 

8. Transport technologies 

Project manager:

Ole Teglgaard, DNV / West Hospital Unit, Central Denmark Region


The aim of this guideline is to describe the automation of transport tasks and technologies in hospitals and ensure knowledge sharing takes place in this area.

This guideline focuses on the automated transport of physical objects using technology such as monorails, conveyor systems, pneumatic dispatch, suction, AGVs, etc. The use of automated technology for human transport will also be considered if time is available in the project.

The project group consists of seven members, including the chairman and secretary. All five regions are represented via these seven participants.

Project group meetings are held approximately every six weeks to ensure guideline activities are coordinated and progressing. Project group members take turns to host the meetings. In connection with project group meetings, the opportunity is taken to examine transport solutions at hospitals in the given region.

The project will conclude with a seminar where relevant transport technologies will be presented and discussed in front of a wider audience.

9. Traceability for devices, equipment, patients and personnel 

Project manager:

Heine Overby, North Denmark Region


Project secretariat:

Anette Leth, Project Department, Aalborg University Hospital, North Denmark Region

Project description

 

Start: Late 2011

End: Late 2013

 
10. Computer-aided interaction with patients and family members

Project manager:

Erik Holmgaard Secher, Hospital Planner, DNU, Central Denmark Region

The aim of this guideline is to investigate new opportunities that arise in terms of patient-hospital interaction when active and involved patients encounter new user-friendly technologies and media.

The question is how we can use new technology to optimise contact with the patient before, during and after their visit to the hospital and thereby accelerate and improve patient treatment.

Through inspiration from other industries and by building on existing technologies, the project aims to produce a catalogue of ideas containing a number of recommendations that can be drawn on when planning the new hospital construction projects.
