The Healthcare Market continues to undergo significant changes in response to governmental decisions at the Federal and State levels of government. The Healthcare Insurance Market attempts to keep up with those changes with revisions to their coverage plans and fees structures. As a result, confusion and uncertainty often exists around what compensation for patient care may be in the future. Such uncertainty can have a major impact on the location, type, size, and similar issues needed to plan and design hospitals and other healthcare delivery facilities.

Daniel is actively monitoring the legislative and regulatory agenda for Healthcare and life sciences for 2018, including implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), the 21st Century Cures Act, and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. In addition, Daniel is tracking regulatory changes to Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, and policies from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).

He authored detailed analyses of the major ACA regulations from the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of the Treasury, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Department of Labor. Daniel’s career in professional services builds off of 10 years of experience in strategic research and policy analysis at a research, technology, and consulting firm focused on the health care industry. Daniel regularly speaks and writes on health care regulatory and legislative issues. - Kelly is a Partner with Deloitte & Touche LLP who has over 20 years of experience in the health care industry. She specializes in providing regulatory compliance and risk services in the health care industry. Kelly has led numerous regulatory compliance program assessments, HIPAA/privacy program assessments, implementation projects and responses to government investigations. Many of these have involved documentation, coding or billing matters. This experience includes coding and billing for hospitals, physician groups, skilled nursing facilities, home health and hospice. She has also been involved in many enterprise-wide risk assessment and ERM program development projects. In these roles she works frequently with boards of directors and executive teams. This experience has given Kelly both a broad and deep understanding of health care (e.g. academic and community hospitals, physician/clinic, SNF/HH, outpatient, etc.) and the impact of changing regulations not only on health care organizations but on large employers and companies in related industries. Kelly has also served several academic medical center and health system clients as an interim chief compliance officer and as an interim director of internal audit . She has assisted numerous clients with CIA-readiness, government investigations , OIG audits, and self-disclosures regarding documentation, coding and billing matters and has led a number of Independent Review Organization (IRO) engagements. Kelly has also served as an expert witness on a billing dispute between a medical practice and a hospital. She is a frequent national speaker on compliance programs, ERM, coding and billing matters, internal controls and other regulatory topics.
Facing a projected shortage of healthcare professionals and the increased need to improve outcomes for their patients, providers have turned increasingly to telemedicine to extend the reach of their diagnostic and consultation services. Originally developed to provide services to remote rural settings, the convenience of telemedicine is attracting urban users as well.
As more patients rely on a screen interface for their face-to-face encounter with their physicians, is there really a long-term need for primary care facilities? What are the implications for medical design if the demand for physical examinations, and thus the facilities to provide them, falls precipitously? This session will explore the history of telemedicine, how it is being deployed by providers, and what the future holds for healthcare environments and the architects who design them.
BiographyDan Jardine has more than 30 years of experience managing the design and construction of healthcare facilities. His passion for understanding and improving the patient experience has led to a career-long interest in how thoughtfully-designed medical environments facilitate efficient delivery of care, enhance the healing process, and contribute to the overall health of our communities. Dan’s breadth of experience spans the entire spectrum of medical design, from small clinical remodels to major hospital expansions. In all cases the quality of the user experience in the finished space is his personal measure of success. Recent advances in telemedicine and the potential for meaningful health consultation without the need for a physical space have challenged some of his long held assumptions, and led to an exploration of what the future holds for medical design. Dan is a member of the AIA Architecture for Health Panel and the Washington State Society for Healthcare Engineering. He received his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Washington.

Neuroscientists have conducted study after study linking features of the physical environment to healing and health as well as to the successful performance of the sorts of tasks that healthcare workers must execute to create positive life experiences for patients and their families and friends. Much of this research lies unused in various academic journals and is not applied because practitioners are not aware of its existence or puzzled by how it can be used in “real world” conditions. This session will not only profile the sorts of research readily available to healthcare designers, but integrate available findings into practical recommendations. The focus of the session will be the application of sensation-perception related insights and other neuroscience-based material tied to human experience of the physical environment, to develop spaces where desired physical, emotional, and cognitive outcomes are more likely. Attendees will learn not only about specific neuroscientific research findings, related to topics such as lighting, surface color/texture, and acoustics, for example, but also be introduced to a framework for gathering and integrating additional science-based material. People will leave the session with an understanding of the practice-crucial neuroscience studies relevant to healthcare design and also the background needed to search out additional rigorous, project-relevant research using tools available to them. During the session, audience members will be asked to provide examples of real world issues they need to resolve that can be addressed via neuroscience and science-based ways to resolve these issues will be shared before the end of the session.

Elliott Eisenberg will provide an overall macroeconomic picture of how the US economy is likely to perform during 2019, with a view to giving some insight how that is likely to affect the construction, A&D and healthcare communities.
He will discuss how key components of US GDP are likely to perform, including household consumption, corporate investment, government spending and net exports.
He will then examine how labor markets and wages will perform, what the inflation outlook is likely to be and how many times the Federal Reserve is likely to raise rates. Time will also be devoted to examining household finances and the condition of commercial and residential real estate markets.
Eisenberg will also devote considerable time to examining the economic impact of the late 2017 Trump tax cuts and bi-partisan spending increases passed in early 2018 and the likely timing and magnitude of the next recession, and what that may mean for the A&D industry generally and the healthcare market.
