May 02, 2018

Recognizing the critical role the built environment plays in patient care, JLL has been developing innovative solutions to help healthcare organizations improve safety and create appealing environments for care. At the recent American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) Planning, Design, & Construction (PDC) Summit, two innovative JLL solutions were recognized by the Built Environment for Healthcare Industry Innovation program that ASHE and Healthcare Infrastructure Research (HIR) jointly hold.

The program lauds innovations that substantially impact the process of creating the built environment for healthcare facilities.

"The U.S. healthcare industry continues its perpetual transformation as patient demands and government regulations reshape the care environment," said Roger Humphrey, Executive Managing Director, Industries at JLL. "This prestigious recognition validates our view that focusing on innovation will help our clients succeed in this ever-changing landscape."

Out of 16 winners, JLL was the only firm to receive two accoladesone for life safety management and another for space condition management. JLL's life safety management program combines new technologies with standardized practices to ensure compliance around construction risk, life safety and environment of care. The integrated solution lowers costs and creates efficiencies, while also providing customized, real-time reporting accessible through mobile devices.

As patients choose between an expanding array of healthcare providers, healthcare facilities executives are using JLL's space condition management mobile app to maintain pleasing care environments and improve the patient experience. Using the mobile app, hospital executives can quickly assess conditions across an entire hospital campus and address functionality and aesthetic problemsbefore financial impact is felt. Both technologies were created by Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), a JLL-owned technology-driven consulting firm specializing in health system solutions.

"We're thrilled that ASHE and HIR are recognizing our innovative solutions," stated Mike Hakbaz, President of ATG. "Hospitals and health systems face tremendous pressure and uncertainty. This only strengthens our commitment to developing solutions that help providers mitigate risk and enhance the patient experienceall while improving their bottom line."
