Integrated Medical Delivery (IMD) leads you through the Five Phases of Development, and guides you through the complexities of the process.
With expertise in health care facility design, development, construction, operations, finance, and other service areas inherent to health care delivery, we identify project feasibility, implement development and put systems in place that position the facility for ongoing success.
The client ultimately determines the facility's success, because it is their decisions that direct clinical care. Centralized, off-site administrative support services create efficiencies in workflow, and provide the benefit of IMD's proven systems.
Phase I: Budget Report
IMD prepares a Mathematical Model based on physician and patient volumes and payer mix. The facts about the proposed project are presented to organizers so that they can make an informed decision as whether to proceed to Phase II of the project.
Phase II: Development and Design
Phase II is the business planning and architectural design portion of the development process. The legal structure of the venture, as well as personnel recruitment, financing, land acquisition, and business plans are addressed. Preliminary architectural plans for the building are presented to the organizers for review. Final financing and design approval is presented to the organizers and the decision whether to build the facility is made.
Phase III: Construction Management Coordination
In Phase III the engineering work is concluded and working drawings are completed and submitted for approval. The design-build team moves on-site and begins construction. Throughout this phase, IMD oversees the non-construction business operations of development, including submission of plans for approval, building permits, inspections, interim construction invoice submittal and payment processing, interior decoration bids, supplies inventory development and physician equipment and instrumentation purchases.
Phase IV: Pre-Operational Development and Licensing
Developing the facility's internal operating structure is accomplished during this phase. IMD assists the organizers in the building and deployment of the integrated information systems inherent to the success of the project. IMD also assists in the preparation of the policies and procedures including medical staff bylaws, and in the development and execution of facility staffing, job descriptions, and employee recruitment. If needed, IMD assists in the initiation of national accounts for drugs and supplies and consulting contracts.
Phase V: Transition to Administrative Support Services
In Phase V, IMD prepares the facility for operations. Finalizing interior decoration, construction completion, final testing and calibration of major equipment and coordination of all final inspections is accomplished. Information systems are brought online, with orientation and training of physicians and staff completed. The facility is now finished and ready for licensing by state and federal agencies and transition to Administrative Support Services.
