The Joint Commission is a not-for-profit organization that certifies close to 80% of US hospitals. The Joint Commission surveyors determine compliance with a broad range of hospital standards, such as the environment of care, emergency management, infection control, and medication management. An important aspect of the on-site survey is the ability to satisfy the surveyor’s questions and produce corresponding documentation regarding compliance of any asset and its ongoing maintenance. With the complexities of current health care facilities, the use of BIM (Building Information Modeling)-based processes in design and construction is becoming the standard. This industry trend is something that can benefit the facilities management professionals, but in order to capture the potential value, there are certain things that need to be understood about the process and how to exploit it. In this class, we will help you understand your role as a facility owner in making sure that BIM is of benefit to you.
