Digital Transformation in Healthcare

Technology continues to advance at lightning speed and it’s vital to not only keep up but steer clear of pitfalls. The NYC Chapters of AMFP and ASHRAE, working together, have assembled a distinguished panel of experts to present state of the art digital solutions in the healthcare environment. Some of the topics will include buy in from owners and operators, integration of older systems and spaces with new technology, building intelligence, integration of building operations and equipment, the cloud and cybersecurity. We will delve into cost benefits of applying digital technology within the Healthcare Built Environment.
