Tech Planning for New State of the Art Hospital at Stanford
September 18, 2019, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT
Christian Lindmark, VP & Chief Technology Officer, Gary Fritz, VP & Chief of Applications, and Gautami (Tami) Shirhatti, Program Director, Stanford Health Care. The new Stanford Hospital, opening in the fall of 2019, is a state-of-the art facility that will accommodate the latest advances in technology and treat rare and complex diseases. The Stanford team is using a highly integrated approach to support the delivery of care. New technologies will be used by patients to provide transparency before, during and after admission. Clinicians will be more effectively connected with each other and the patient to deliver the highest quality care. Ancillary and support systems are highly automated and connected to the care process which will both reduce cost and improve patient safety. The facility is also a research and innovation hub for the development of new healthcare technologies including Artificial Intelligence on patient units. The entire technical ecosystem has over 23,000 new devices, 180+ applications including next generation automated guided vehicles, robotic automation, mobile patient way-finding, and robust wired and wireless systems to support 828,000 sq ft of new patient care and support space, including 264 patient rooms, 104 ICU’s, 29 operating rooms, and a 68 bay emergency department.
