TCO and Compliance Avoidance

1.0 CEU Credit Available


Over my 25-years of facility installation and maintenance work in the healthcare industry it has become apparent that total cost of ownership (TCO) and code compliance are frequently classified as a secondary or even tertiary in comparison to the focus on immediate out-of-pocket cost in project work. This presentation explores the situation, the impacts, and the outcomes of not adequately incorporating TCO and code compliance in construction/renovation and maintenance. The conclusion of the presentation offers an alternative approach that elevates and integrates the factors of TCO and code compliance into projects.

We will further suggest that since costs and maintenance don’t “stop” when the project is over [rather they last for the lifetime of the building] an effective team approach must include the “builders”, “users” and perhaps most importantly the maintainers.

Often individual aspects of construction/renovation and maintenance are typically not integrated or even coordinated, as there are multiple contractors with multiple subs reporting to multiple departments. In the current industry standard approach project costing is primarily based upon upfront costs & time and that codes & standards are looked at as nuisances rather than effective guidelines for long-term management.

While there is an industry-focus on specifications, there is not an effective approach for implementation. This can be verified by examining the typical size of most projects’ “punch lists.” In most cases there is neither a single entity for oversight nor are the actual daily department usage needs factored into the design/approach.

This presentation offers an alternate approach that incorporates accountability both top down and bottom up. This approach incorporates forecasted daily usage, cross-referenced code requirements, and a comprehensive implementation plan.

In conclusion, the take away is the concept of TCO while embracing code and daily usage requirements as an integral part of project planning and execution. Effective implementation with “forward thinking” reduces costs, enhances reliability, availability, maintainability and sustainability! 

We hope that beyond CEU credits we provide meaning takeaway ☺

Bottom line, if a healthcare facility wants Medicare reimbursement it is required to comply!
