Integrated healthcare facility planning and commissioning

We integrate people, technology and process during the pre-operational stages of the facility lifecycle

Our approach

Healthcare entrepreneurs wishing to expand, revitalise or build new facilities can make comprehensive use of Healthshare’s integrated healthcare facility planning and commissioning service, taking their project from concept to delivery. Alternatively, depending on where you find yourself on the healthcare continuum, elements of the service can be adapted to the specific needs of your healthcare project.

What we do

Our team ensures that the planning and design of the healthcare facility supports its operational and clinical function, and that the construction work is completed according to the approved drawings and specifications based on the clinical requirements such as:

  • Ensuring that construction dovetails with clinical milestones/requirements
  • Ensuring that the planned equipment is in place, ready for use
  • Ensuring that all departments are operationally ready
  • Ensuring the building and systems are fully functional on occupation

Project implementation:
Our holistic approach to every project ensures a seamless experience for our clients across the following

  • Design development and optimal space planning – guided by applicable regulatory principles
  • Health technology planning
  • Roll out of hospital information management (HIMS), and other ICT hardware and software requirements
  • Implementation of governance frameworks such as:
    • Policies and procedures
    • Hospital workflows and care pathways
    • Hospital documentation
    • Internal control processes
    • Human resource planning serving clinical and operational requirements
    • Planning, recruitment, induction and training
    • Supplier engagements
    • Regulatory and statutory registrations
    • Facility ready for occupation

Integrated healthcare facility management

Our integrated healthcare facility planning and commissioning service takes your healthcare project through all the stages of commissioning, planning, execution, and handover of the completed healthcare facility. Our team provides continual support and guidance at each point of the healthcare project’s life cycle, helping you refine your facility until it functions efficiently and effectively.
