Many different general doctrines and processes for building and system commissioning are in use today. Some health care organizations have used a form of commissioning as they have constructed new facilities or substantially renovated facilities, with varying levels of success. Many of these processes do not specifically meet the needs of health care organizations. This course examines a process designed specifically for health care facilities. Health Facility Commissioning, or HFCx, as described in the ASHE Health Facilities Commissioning Guidelines provides a robust set of tools that when implemented result in a health care organization realizing their envisioned return on investment in facilities and equipment, and allows them to optimize the physical health care environment to meet the organization’s strategic mission.

This course presents a business case for HFCx. A methodology is presented for developing a business plan that allows the health care organization’s executive leadership to evaluate the value and the return on investment of embracing the HFCx process.

Critical aspects of HFCx are discussed with emphasis placed on a collaborative effort that brings the health care organization, design team, constructors and commissioning agent together to share the responsibility for assuring that the owner’s project requirements are met. HFCx can be scaled to various project scopes. A methodology is presented for integrating HFCx into all health facility projects.

An emphasis is placed on a process of continuous commissioning that sustains facilities equipment and systems operating at peak efficiency and effectiveness.  Case studies are used to demonstrate the value of HFCx in managing first cost, achieving expected ROI, meeting the strategic goals of the organization and providing for sustained efficient operation of facilities.

Retrocommissioning is a process that uses elements of the HFCx process to improve operating efficiencies and functionality of existing health care facilities. This course describes a process for identifying the cost and operational benefit of retrocommissioning facilities that have not been previously commissioned.

Participants in this course receive .7 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or 7 Contact Hours from the American Hospital Association.
