The future of the hospital must be reshaped

29.11.2010
"Hospital Build Europe" trade fair and congress
4th-6th April 2011, Nuremberg, Germany
  • Exhibition, congress and meeting point for all aspects of the new hospital
  • Already a success for two years running in Dubai and Singapore - now in Germany for the first time
  • Söder: Nuremberg ideal location for Hospital Build Europe 2011

Hospitals in their present form are no longer viable for the future. As demographics, social norms and disease patterns change, the healthcare sector and medical facilities must also adapt to ensure that they can continue to fulfil their duty to provide care and remain sustainable. Pressure is mounting and can be seen in statutory regulations as well as in technology requirements. Patients are increasingly becoming customers who expect not only medical services but also comfort.

At the same time, the amount of time they can stay in clinics is limited due to the fact that an increasing number of medical procedures are being performed on an outpatient basis with post-operative treatment taking place in the home. "The activities of hospitals are going to be transformed and this will have an impact on their conception, organisation and architecture," says Awn Jalal Sharif from the Supreme Council of Health in Qatar. At the "Hospital Build Europe 2011" trade fair and congress, taking place from 4th-6th April 2011 in Nuremberg, he will discuss eight trends and reasons that demonstrate how hospitals in their present form have not kept pace with the times.

Program: bit.ly/hospitalbuild2011

Numerous international experts at "Hospital Build Europe 2011" will address topics such as economic factors and business models, facility management, the role of sustainability as well as the influence of structural design on efficiency and healing. Dr. Markus Söder, Bavarian State Minister of the Environment and Public Health, will open the event. Prof. Christine Nickl-Weller from Nickl & Partner will highlight the challenges facing the hospital in 2020. The architect is the head of the "Hospital plus" research project at the Technische Universität Berlin, which aims to improve the energy efficiency of hospitals. "Hospitals not only have high energy consumption, but also enormous potential for energy savings, which we seek to achieve through our research," explains Nickl-Weller.

Other speakers include Dr. Mathias Goyen from UKE Consult und Management, Dr. Roland Mörmel from Hochtief Construction, Prof. Bernd H. Mühlbauer from bh.m Hospital Consulting and Prof. Dr. Alan Dilani from the International Academy of Design and Health. In addition to discussions on the design, building and refurbishment of hospitals, a parallel series of talks will focus on the topics of healthcare management, process optimisation, non-medical services and patient hotels.

"Hospital Build Europe", already a success for two years running in Dubai and Singapore, will be held in the European market for the first time in 2011. The specialised trade fair with accompanying congress offers exhibitors and visitors from across Europe a new and engaging platform. Investors, commissioners, backers and managers of major healthcare building projects will meet suppliers of the best services in planning, design, building, operations, management and refurbishment.

Im Focus: Scientists present new observations to understand the phase transition in quantum chromodynamics

The building blocks of matter in our universe were formed in the first 10 microseconds of its existence, according to the currently accepted scientific picture. After the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago, matter consisted mainly of quarks and gluons, two types of elementary particles whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interaction. In the early universe, these particles moved (nearly) freely in a quark-gluon plasma.

This is a joint press release of University Muenster and Heidelberg as well as the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt.

Then, in a phase transition, they combined and formed hadrons, among them the building blocks of atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons. In the current issue of...

Im Focus: Patented nanostructure for solar cells: Rough optics, smooth surface

Thin-film solar cells made of crystalline silicon are inexpensive and achieve efficiencies of a good 14 percent. However, they could do even better if their shiny surfaces reflected less light. A team led by Prof. Christiane Becker from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) has now patented a sophisticated new solution to this problem.

"It is not enough simply to bring more light into the cell," says Christiane Becker. Such surface structures can even ultimately reduce the efficiency by...

Im Focus: New soft coral species discovered in Panama

A study in the journal Bulletin of Marine Science describes a new, blood-red species of octocoral found in Panama. The species in the genus Thesea was discovered in the threatened low-light reef environment on Hannibal Bank, 60 kilometers off mainland Pacific Panama, by researchers at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama (STRI) and the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) at the University of Costa Rica.

Scientists established the new species, Thesea dalioi, by comparing its physical traits, such as branch thickness and the bright red colony color, with the...
