Too often healthcare systems seek to solve problems within their own siloes rather than reaching out to peers struggling with the same issues. The same often happens on the global scale; U.S. healthcare engineers remain in the dark on the work being undertaken around the world to solve facility performance challenges. This session presents a unique opportunity to learn about the significant efforts being undertaken around the world to address challenges in improving healthcare facilities’ energy efficiency, technology integration and more—as well as opportunities to better collaborate with your cutting-edge peers from around the world. Bring your questions, and suggestions for improving global cooperation, for this panel of international experts.
