In 2020, the world realised just how vulnerable the human experience is to the microscopic universe. The risk of a pandemic threatening the population had been predicted by experts for decades, and just about every form of media has called for action against global warming, the consumption of our finite resources and the rising extinction rate of our fauna.

Yet, as we journey towards 2025, another challenge has risen. Increasingly, every aspect of our lives is touched by an avalanche of technology. Whether it is with Google, Siri, your Fitbit Watch or your Building Management System, Healthcare Facility Managers must interact with algorithms of one kind or another.

The systems that drive the information evolution are gaining intelligence at an alarming rate. Machines have already attained a level of sophistication that matches and, in some cases exceeds the capabilities of being human. The era of the smart machine is here.

This conference aims to give delegates an insight into the developing trends in the technological and biological challenges, which may impact on how we deliver Healthcare Facility Management Services into the 21st Century.

Healthcare is one of the leaders in the development of new technologies and is at the forefront in countering biological threats. Are we ignoring the warning signs? Are we being complacent?

What we did yesterday is different to what we do today and who knows what we will need to do tomorrow?

It is essential that those who work in Healthcare Engineering and Facility Management within Australia focus on where we are heading and remain in control of how we incorporate these changes into the facets of our lives.

There is a wealth of information waiting to be shared, this is your opportunity to tell your colleagues of your experiences and to learn from what has gone before.
