Better healthcare through better infrastructure
On behalf of the Health and Care Infrastructure Research and Innovation Centre (HaCIRIC), we would like to invite you to our International Conference 2010.
This event aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from across disciplines and countries to focus on key challenges in the provision of healthcare infrastructure for the 21st century:
Stimulating innovation through new finance and delivery models
→ How do procurement, contractual and financing models – and targets and incentives – influence innovation in healthcare infrastructure and services?
Managing change and innovation
→ How do you better support the adoption, spread and sustainability of innovations in healthcare services and infrastructure systems?
Innovation impacts – outcomes and processes
→ What is the relationship between innovation in infrastructure / services and health outcomes, and how do we capture the potential and realised value delivered by innovative infrastructure and services?
Design and decision making
→ How can we develop more integrated approaches to planning healthcare infrastructure and services?
The conference will combine papers and posters reporting on new research, as well as two panel discussions from academic and industry perspectives on the challenges of researching and delivering healthcare infrastructures. You will also have the opportunity to visit outstanding healthcare facilities.
We would like to thank the scientific committee members and panellists who have agreed to share their knowledge and expertise to make this conference possible.
We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh.

The conference will be hosted at The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh, Scotland.
