Harness significant ROI for your facility using ASHE’s commissioning process.

Health Facility Commissioning, or HFCx, as described in the ASHE Health Facilities Commissioning Handbook and the Guidelines provide a robust set of tools that can help your health care organization achieve its envisioned return on investment in facilities and equipment. Ultimately, ASHE’s process to health facility commissioning will help you optimize the physical health care environment to meet your organization’s strategic mission.

This course presents a business case for HFCx. It will teach you how to develop a business plan that presents the value to the health care organization’s executive leadership and demonstrate the return on investment of embracing the HFCx process. Critical aspects of HFCx are discussed in this course with emphasis placed on a collaborative effort that brings the health care organization, design team, constructors, and commissioning agent together. This team shares the responsibility for assuring that the owner’s project requirements are met. The course also shows you how HFCx can be scaled to various project scopes.
