WEBINAR: Long Range Strategic Capital Planning in a Post Covid World

February 18, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

The pandemic has added even greater uncertainty to long range planning—especially for capital investments. Potential permanent changes in care utilization, the expansion of telehealth, and changes in operations—along with the financial impact of the pandemic on health systems—have resulted in a reluctance to make major investments in facilities by some organizations. At the same time, others are moving ahead with transformational investments. This webinar will review three related topics:

  • Tools and frameworks for long range strategic planning—even with uncertainty
  • Examples of changes in operations due to the pandemic, and whether those are expected to change size, scale, and locations of various inpatient and outpatient functions
  • Most likely “low regret” facility functionality investments for both renovation and new construction
