The Healthcare BIMConsortium (HBC) has been created by healthcare owners as a forum for collaboration with our industry partners (software vendors, designers, builders and specialty consultants) in support of improved data interoperability for Facility Life Cycle Management (FLCM).
Healthcare facilities are enormous complex machines, constantly evolving, that need to operate correctly throughout their expected life. Healthcare owners, comprising the HBC, are collaborating to shape industry direction and to leverage BIM to facilitate efficient processes and data exchange supporting facility life cycle management.
The HBC is an ongoing project group in bSa focused on BIM issues relating to the FLCM of healthcare facilities to resolve areas that healthcare owners are facing as common challenges. While the individual healthcare owner members may have other BIM objectives they are working in their individual organizations, the HBC agrees the collective efforts and voice of the HBC will be only be those issues that are common objectives to the healthcare owner members.
HBC objectives do not indicate that other objectives are not important, however to achieve a focused and collective effort forward the team of healthcare owner members is leveraging the HBC voice on common objectives only. HBC owner members may work their other individual organizational objectives external to the HBC efforts.
The HBC has five core focus areas that are being addressed in a collaborative effort.
The HBC has periodic meetings and workshops to advance the efforts described in the mission statement. The information on previous meetings can be found below, as well as details for the next general public meeting and any know future planned meetings.
