Bob Currie and Terry Barker will present “Big Data Tools for Holistic Healthcare Planning” at the Healthcare Infrastructure Summit in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. As hospitals are pushed by government policies that bundle funding for acute and community care into a single basket, a longer view is required for costs to be expressed in a 30–to–50–year lifecycle. In response, new tools are being developed. This presentation will describe some of these new tools, how they have been applied in real-life settings, and how they mesh with alternative project delivery models.
