AHCA Program October 6 - 8th
- Seminar starts Sunday afternoon

The AHCA Seminar will be welcoming many nationally recognized speakers who will be presenting the latest trends in the ever-expanding horizons of health care facility design and construction. Beth Baker, author of a new book detailing intentional retirement communities across the US, will introduce us to new and innovative choices of aging in community. John Currie, renowned lecturer at Clemson University, will take us on a tour of health care facilities from past to present. Michael Murphy, the architect of the National Peace and Justice Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama will explore the concept of how buildings can actually heal through the experiential process of being in them. And we will hear about how some hospitals are expanding health care services far from the hospital campus to reach patients in non-traditional settings.

The five tracks of breakaway sessions will be held Sunday through Tuesday afternoons to concentrate on issues that are specific to each discipline. And this year the required two hour long Advanced Course will be offered for Architects.

The following outline of courses and speakers is your guide to two and a half days educational sessions and networking opportunities.

9:30 - 10:30 Real Life or Fake Life: Which will you promote?
Carmen Bowman
Culture Change Coach, Regulator turned Educator – Edu-Catering: Catering Education for Compliance and Culture Change
Denver, CO
How much of what is offered to people living in long term care communities is fake?
Much is at stake with fake. Let's call it out and consider why we think it’s okay. We’ll talk about examples: fake villages, fake post offices, fake bus stops, fake pets and babies, mock tails and near beer, the folding of fake towels and gigantic chess pieces. Let's compare it to real and what each says about how we care for and treat older adults. Being honest, the bias is to encourage all to move in the direction of real life rather than fake promoting the culture change premise “rampant normalcy.” Fake or real: which will you choose to promote?

HCA Healthcare
Nashville, TN

Jake Marshall, MPS, CEM, FF/NRP
Senior Director, Enterprise Preparedness & Emergency Operation
HCA Healthcare
Nashville, TN

Through experience responding to disasters across the geographic footprint of HCA, this model has been developed, and extensively proven, to successfully target emergency resources in complement of coalition and governmental efforts. Several examples of this model's success were demonstrated during Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Florence, and Michael, the 1-October mass shooting incident in Las Vegas, the 2018 California Wildfires, the 2018 City of Austin Water Outage, and the November 2018 Alaska Earthquakes. The model has been frequently cited by external stakeholders in their own after action reviews as a best practice.

These lessons will be shared via case study examples to discuss how other partners can adopt lessons from HCA Healthcare's Emergency Operations experience and apply them to strengthen their own readiness programs.

Design Learning from the History of Medicine
In Association with the American College of Healthcare Architecture
Introduction by:
William Hercules, FAIA, FACHA, FACHE
President, CEO
WJH Health
Orlando, FL

John Michael Currie, FAIA, FRSPH, RIBA
Principal
Healthcare Baskerville
Washington, DC

There is a rich history of medicine, science and Architecture with lessons for today’s designers. The knowledge gained from exploring the body of work in what has been come known as “the long 19th century”, while overtaken by modern science, teaches skills and insights about the healing purposes of the settings for healthcare based on scientific medicine.

Caregivers from history have relied on the design profession to create places that support important emerging patient care processes. These places and processes are based on science, faith, and beliefs of the time – some correct and some not.

11:00 – 12:00 Architecture That's Built to Heal
Michael Murphy
Founding Principal and Executive Director
MASS Design Group
Boston, MA

Architecture is not neutral; it either hurts or heals. Architecture has the power to project its values far beyond the building’s walls and into the lives of communities and people. Founding Principal and Executive Director of MASS Design Group, Michael Murphy, has leveraged this power of architecture in a holistic approach that produces community-centric buildings that are both beautiful and promote health, justice, and human dignity. Michael will showcase a series of recent projects that utilize the MASS practice model, and harness the power of architecture to wrestle with our most difficult truths, reveal hidden narratives of our social structure, and seek to reconstruct the systems that perpetuate injustice.

Humanizing Technologies in Our Healthcare Designs
Ted Hood
Senior Project Manager
TLC Engineering Solutions, Inc.
Brentwood, TN

Taw North, RCDD, LEED AP
Technology Director, Principal
TLC Engineering Solutions, Inc.
Orlando, FL

Devices, machines, and integrated systems are infiltrating healthcare facilities. These technologies play a key role in improving patient safety and saving lives. Frequently they are implemented into designs without embracing human nature and our basic needs. Elderly patients are often overwhelmed with technologies they cannot use; patients are frequently frustrated, and solutions address only a segment of the patient demographics. Embracing the human element as part of a patient centered technology design is key for successful integration into the built environment.

Airflow Patterns and Flow Path of Contaminants in Hospital Operating Rooms
Kishor Khankari, Ph.D. ASHRAE Fellow, ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer
President
AnSight LLC
Ann Arbor, MI

According to the National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance (NNIS) system of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, surgical site infections (SSI) are the third most frequently reported nosocomial infection causing substantial increase in healthcare costs. ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170 specifies minimum 20 air changes per hour (ACH) for the operating rooms (OR). Reducing SSI requires effective sweeping of the bacteria carrying skin particulates out of the sterile zone and minimize air entrainment. This case study compares the performance OR ventilation system for various ACH and provides comparative insights into the temperature distribution and probable flow path of airborne pathogens in OR.

Many NFPA standards are questioning inspection, testing and maintenance (ITM) requirements that are based on historical practices and not necessarily on collected data. This panel discussion will examine what is the best way to collect relevant data for inspection, testing and maintenance requirements and frequencies. The panelists will discuss the format of ITM data, forms used to capture ITM data, the amount of data to collect and the importance of standardized question sets. This session will also incorporate examples for health care facilities to illustrate how variations of questions will lead to different inspection results.

This panel discussion has been selected as one of the education sessions in NFPA Annual Conference 2019. For this AHCA meeting, we will cover the key learning with health care examples in order to address this important topic in the light of health care environment.
