Continuing Education Program

Each Session will be 1 hour (1 CEU Credit) total of 4 Hours (4 CEUs)

Credits will be automatically reported to AIA (on request) or self-reported for ASHE. Healthcare Executives Only Please.

Session 1: Security related issues that should be considered when designing and building healthcare facilities. The primary focus will be on considering entry into the buildings, secured departments, and developing an infrastructure to prevent workplace violence and potential active shooter.

Session 2: Behavioral Health considerations that must be evaluated when designing Emergency Departments. This will focus on the data they should be evaluated to help determine if safe spaces should be built to help manage behavioral health patients in an emergency department.

The following two sessions will focus on Emergency Management and the JCR Consultant will allow time for attendees to share lessons learned, best practice and required building modification/strategies that can be adopted to manage future pandemics.

Session 3: Crisis management related to managing capacity for additional space and ventilation modifications during a surge or pandemic.

Session 4: How to Navigate 1135 Waivers: What was accepted and what was denied related to the physical environment modifications, utilities infrastructures and inspection, testing and maintenance.

Opening Keynote

Opening Keynote: The Future of Health & Medicine: How will technology influence healthcare delivery and design?


From the perspective of a leading physician, scientist, inventor and innovator this presentation examines rapidly emerging, game changing and convergent technology trends and how they are and will be leveraged to change the face of healthcare and the practice of medicine in the next decade. Daniel Kraft offers a fast-paced look at the next few years of innovations in medicine, powered by new tools, tests and apps that bring diagnostic information right to the patient’s bedside. A deep dive into where emergent fields such as low cost personal genomics, the digitization of health records, crowd sourced data, molecular imaging, wearable devices & mobile health, synthetic biology, systems medicine, robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, 3D printing and regenerative medicine are transforming healthcare, and have the potential to enable clinicians, empower patients, and deliver better care and outcomes at lower cost. How will these innovations and changes in how healthcare is delivered transform healthcare facilities?


Daniel Kraft, MD

Daniel Kraft is a Stanford and Harvard trained physician-scientist, inventor, entrepreneur, and innovator. With over 25 years of experience in clinical practice, biomedical research and healthcare innovation, Kraft has served as Faculty Chair for Medicine at Singularity University since its inception in 2008, and is the Founder and Chair of Exponential Medicine, a program that explores convergent, rapidly developing technologies and their potential in biomedicine and healthcare.

Following undergraduate degrees from Brown University and medical school at Stanford, Daniel was Board Certified in both Internal Medicine & Pediatrics after completing a Harvard residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital & Boston Children’s Hospital, and fellowships in hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplantation at Stanford.

He has multiple scientific publications and medical device, immunology and stem cell related patents through faculty positions with Stanford University School of Medicine and as clinical faculty for the pediatric bone marrow transplantation service at University of California San Francisco.
Daniel is a member of the Kaufman Fellows Society (Class 13) and member of the Inaugural (2015) class of the Aspen Institute Health Innovators Fellowship.

Daniel’s academic research has focused on: stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, stem cell derived immunotherapies for cancer, bioengineering human T-cell differentiation, and humanized animal models. Clinical work focuses on: bone marrow / hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for malignant and non-malignant diseases in adults and children, medical devices to enable stem cell based regenerative medicine, including marrow derived stem cell harvesting, processing and delivery. He also implemented the first text-paging system at Stanford Hospital.

He is also the inventor of the MarrowMiner, an FDA approved device for the minimally invasive harvest of bone marrow, and founded RegenMed Systems, a company developing technologies to enable stem cell-based regenerative therapies. He is also the founder of IntelliMedicine, focused on data driven, precision medicine.
