The presentation, “Knowledge Management! – The New Penicillin” explores how the concept of Knowledge Management can be applied to the design, construction, maintenance, and operations of healthcare facilities. In addition, the impact of information technology on current and future healthcare facilities is addressed.

Gillespie and Otte provided a short overview of the evolution of information technology within the healthcare industry, beginning with the “Information Age.” The presentation focused on the future impact Knowledge Management is expected to have on equipment acquisition strategies, construction management delivery parameters, and the A/E selection process. Attendees learned about upcoming trends in Knowledge Management projected for the next 10 years and will come away with insights on improving facility planning.
