New York’s Premier Healthcare Event: “Wonderful information, well presented and exciting new concepts, materials, strategies”

  Sessions Include:

Heads Up on Healthcare – The Next 5-Years

We asked healthcare’s top thinkers to look past the political rhetoric and share how they think things are going to shake out over the next 5-years. Expect an off-script conversation on the twists and turns to expect as we continue to reform healthcare after the election. We will discuss the challenges, opportunities, dead-ends, and possible game changers – so be ready to take notes.

-David Peknay, Director, Corporate Healthcare Ratings, S&P Global Ratings Services (formerly Standard & Poors)

-David Sandman, President & CEO, New York State Health Foundation


The Never-Ending Compliance Challenge – How Environment of Care Regulations are Driving the Design, Construction & Operation of Medical Facilities

Get the latest information on the rules that influence every aspect of healthcare facilities.


The Joint Commission
Learn first-hand the changes put into effect with newly released SAFER matrix. Get tips on how to avoid problems, make your life easier, and improve safety in healthcare facilities. “Change is coming, but it’ll be better,” says TJC spokesperson, “there’s no black magic involved.”

-Dodd Day, MAS, CSP, CHSP, CPP, Life Safety Code Surveyor, The Joint Commission


Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services
Understand the recent rule changes issued by CMS. These new rules update the Life Safety Code to the 2012 edition and change some of the reference standards. Hear the experts explain what it means; how it affects your new and existing facilities; and the impact on costs and operations.

-Eric Babcock, Director/NY, Jensen Hughes


Quiz the Experts

An experienced panel of experts will field all your questions, everything from New York’s new cooling tower laws to striking the proper balance between security and life safety.

  Cyber Attack! Infrastructure Guidelines to Thwart Data Thieves & Hackers
When data thieves and hackers want to break into a healthcare provider’s network, the building automation system is where they love to probe. Because most hospitals have internet accessible controls for their facilities infrastructure, this gives hackers multiple entry points to steal healthcare data or create life-threatening problems. Healthcare operators and their architects and engineers can significantly reduce their vulnerability by following “7 Golden Guidelines.”
-Fred Cohn, Program Manager, Schneider Electric, and Consultant to MIT Research & Department of Homeland Security National Cybersecurity Communications Integration Center (NCCIC)
