Designing Digital Hospitals

Hosted by Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Designing Digital Hospitals

Building the Leeds Way is a programme which will deliver a new Children’s hospital, a new adult hospital and a single-site maternity and neo-natal centre in a new state-of-the-art building on the Leeds General Infirmary site.

It will also build a new Centre for Laboratory Medicine, an innovative regional pathology facility for all West Yorkshire Trusts, and create an Innovation Village to house science and healthtech businesses in the heart of Leeds.

This presentation, from the Hospitals of the Future project Team, will explore the Trust’s digital ambitions for the new hospital, including how we work with architects, designers, tech bodies and the Government’s New hospital Programme, to design SMART digitally enabled hospitals, which will:

  • Deliver improvements to patient care and patient experience, while creating a healthier and more efficient environment for staff
  • Link clinical estate and facilities management together – to optimise operational efficiencies and contribute towards the Trust’s sustainability goals
  • The presentation will explore how Digital Design can ensure we create hospitals which are not just fit for now – utilising current leading-edge medical and facilities management technologies – but are adaptable for the integration of future innovations and care models.

SMART technologies will help the buildings monitor and manage their environments. This could mean, for example, that lifts are waiting at the floors most occupied, or from which they are most requested. It could ensure temperature management systems and air conditioning are only operating in appropriate areas. These types of measures contribute to the Trust’s sustainability goals while creating a simpler environment for patients and more efficient spaces for staff.

There will be the opportunity for a Q&A session following the presentation.

We look forward to having you attend the event!
