As presented on March 19, 2010 at the 2010 AMGA Annual Conference

Presented by: Randall Huss, M.D., President, and Gerald Dowdy, VP Operations, St. John’s Clinic – Rolla Division; and Miguel Burbano de Lara, AIA, NCARB, Senior VP Healthcare, The Neenan Company

When faced with the opportunity of designing a new ambulatory facility to house a multi-specialty clinic practice, ASC and other outpatient services to be completed a year after implementation of their EHR, the St. John’s Clinic-Rolla team partnered with a progressive architectural team, The Neenan Company, to design and build a facility around the new electronic workflows. They integrated Lean workflow redesign and Lean facility design elements to achieve a facility capable of supporting the digital, paperless ambulatory practice of the future.
