TheFocus32Preparing Your Facility for Tomorrow
Meet Facility Strategic Goals & Performance Targets

 

Road2

Is your healthcare facility prepared for tomorrow? Do you have a clear road map and established framework to grow/develop your healthcare facility into the future?

To best position your facility for success you need to understand your current state, current and future facility needs, and facility aspirations as well as targets. Once known and understood, it is then necessary to clearly identify initiatives that will allow your facility to succeed and achieve.

Facility planning, design, and construction initiatives are most successful when they integrate strategic, operational, and functional considerations to ensure that these requirements become the drivers of space allocations and facility decisions. New imperatives arising from recent healthcare authoritative changes as well as an emphasis on patient-focused care and technologies demand that we continuously re-think the healthcare delivery system. Successful facilities are deemed to be those which focus on patients’ needs, enhance business functions, promote more efficient and less costly processes, support new patterns of clinical practice, and meet strategic and financial performance targets.

A distinct approach to facility planning is required to meet the demands of the constantly evolving planning environment. Approaches need to incorporate the exploration of administrative, logistical, and outpatient as well as inpatient functions that result in specific goals for reinvented processes. Furthermore, we believe that the design of spaces, resulting from this process, is valuable in two ways. First, you can be assured that recommendations for facility and campus development will better anticipate the future and ultimately guarantee a higher return on facility investments. Second, the specification of process improvements provides a broader operations blueprint that will help guide you through the evolution of the healthcare delivery system.

Additionally, facility planning must provide a full range of integrated strategic, analytic, and technical support services that are needed in order to design and implement initiatives to ensure progress toward meeting requirements and goals. These initiatives and tasks are particularly crucial in assuring a successful facility.

Facility planning should analyze and integrate input and direction provided by current facility plans, leadership and staff, current and future gap issues and opportunities, space calculations and allocation, facility condition assessments, capital inventory reports, energy assessment/requirements, construction planning, leases, etc. in the development of task orders for the overall facility plan.

Healthcare facility planning should support the main objective of accomplishing broad based strategies for maintaining and improving infrastructure. The process and effort must be collaborative to address specific gaps to improve the capital planning process with the goal of improving delivery of services and benefits to facility users as well as improving efficiency of operations.

Facility planning can be challenging and difficult. However, the process and end goal, being a facility road map, will give crucial guidance and direction to ascertain readiness and future success.

Support, Assist, & Remedy Department of Veteran Affairs Strategic Planning Requirements & Initiatives

RCC Can Be of Assistance with Your SCIP & HCPM Needs

Strategy2

The Romanyk Consulting Corp. (RCC) team works attentively to identify client pains and issues. Once identified, RCC will work to achieve our goal of providing effective solutions to fill the gap between the client’s current situation and their desired future state. One valued client to RCC is the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).

We have actively listened and learned how to support, assist, and remedy key VA planning requirements and initiatives. Our deep understanding of Strategic Capital Investment Planning (SCIP) as well as the Health Care Planning Model (HCPM) has allowed us to develop tools to better support VA leadership and alleviate associated challenges. Two such tools and efforts provided by RCC are Workload Allocation Modeling and Facility Master Planning.

Workload Allocation Modeling is the process of completing the following main objectives using visual mapping, quantitative Strategic Planning Category data, key VA workload projections, and facility as well as Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) leadership information to:

  • Identify opportunities to better serve veterans by increasing access to necessary healthcare services as well as moving workload to improve efficiencies and reduce gaps in coverage
  • Realize workload opportunities and issues in facility adjacencies, services, and space needs as well as quantify workload and FTE needs for planned and “hypothetical” scenarios in new/existing facilities and services
  • Accomplish proactive strategic planning, at a facility market or VISN level, to be prepared for future healthcare demands by identifying workload quantities and FTE needs across all facilities

Deliverables are organized graphically as well as statistically to assist one in completing the VA’s HCPM as well as facilitate comprehensive strategic planning across a facility market or VISN.

Our Facility Master Planning demonstrates the thought process and effort that goes into developing a plan for a facility over a 20 year span. The Master Plans that we provide are a “living and breathing” document that doesn’t sit on a shelf once completed. The plans are organized in such a manner that describe different options for SCIP based on Facility MEP Projects, Energy Management Projects and Architectural Solutions; a plan that can be updated and used along with Workload Allocation Modeling and the HCPM yearly. We understand the “game planning” for NRM projects, Minor projects, Major projects and how and when those projects are approved. The final Master Plan Reports contain all of the data necessary to complete your yearly SCIP Process and are formatted in such a manner to be easily imported into the SCIP Automation Tool.

We are pleased to share any additional information with you about RCC solutions and services as well as actively listen to pains and needs.
