    5.1.1 introDuCtionToday, Information Technology has become one of the most critical support functions in Hospitals. Information technology systems permeate every aspect of a hospital from communications to operations. Technology systems provide reliable infrastructure that reduce costs and provide enhanced services to patients and doctors. Cost containment, increased operational efficiency and enhanced safety and security are among the key benefits that nformation Technology offers.

    A total of five (5) new National Guard Health Affairs (NGHA) hospital facilities are envisioned:

    Maternity Hospital, KAMC-CR, to be located on the existing campus of Riyadh.

    King Abdullah Specialized Children Hospital, KAMC-WR, to be located on the existing campus of Jeddah.

    Neuroscience and Trauma Care Center, KAMC-WR, to be located on the existing campus of Jeddah.

    Taif Specialized Hospital to be located on a new medical campus in Taif.

    Qassim Specialized Hospital to be located on a new medical campus in Qassim. This hospital will be essentially identical in programming and layout to the proposed Taif facility.

    Each NGHA hospital will be built based on the objective of creating a modern medical center. As such, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Systems will be at the forefront of the design effort in regards to providing best practices for continuity of services, supporting the NGHAs mission, creating and maintaining a strong image and brand, and providing state-of-the-art operations.

    For the Taif and Qassim facilities, the proposed hospitals will be constructed along with associated support facilities including housing, utility, administration buildings, mosques, commercial and learning centers within new campus sites. All of the required support facilities will be constructed as part of this project and will include a Main Distribution Facility room in the hospital to house ICT equipment serving the campus network.

    The Maternity Hospital, KAMC-CR, as well as utility and structured car parking buildings, being constructed within the existing Riyadh

    campus will take advantage of the existing local Campus Data Center for various ICT system redundancies and expansions as well as overall network connectivity.

    A new data center will be provided as part of this project at the Jeddah campus to serve the two new hospitals as well as utility buildings, culverts and structured car parking buildings and to act as a redundant data center for the existing hospital.

    At the Riyadh and Jeddah campuses, each of the new hospital facilities will include a Main Distribution Facility (MDF), (i.e., Main Equipment Room). It will act as a connection point for each hospital to the network core located at the existing / new Data Centers as well as to the various Technology Rooms in the hospitals. At the Taif and Qassim facilities, the Disaster Recovery Center / MDF will house the network core as well as act as a connection point to the various Technology Rooms in the hospitals.

    The Hospital technology systems will be designed in a configuration that will be adaptable to the ever-changing requirements of future healthcare operations and systems. The intent is to create information technologies capable of adapting to change with minimal disruption to the operating facilities.

    The overall concept is to standardize the equipment to the greatest extent possible to simplify long term maintenance and operations. The infrastructure will provide fiber optic cabling throughout the campus, hospital facilities, and to all structures to allow for day one connectivity as well as providing sufficient extra capacity fiber for future implementation and expansion.

    One of the primary purposes for the infrastructure is to provide a highly redundant, highly available, and highly expandable communication backbone, both active and passive. The Hospital Local Area Networks (General/Clinical Systems Network and Nurse Call Network) will utilize the backbone. These networks will be connected to each site-specific Campus Data Center Core equipment, using multiples of 10 Gbps speed with near zero latency, high QoS, and sufficient redundancy to prevent outages of service to the Hospital. Wireless LAN in the form of highly adaptive, mobility enabled WiFi will be provided in each Hospital to allow for internet and data network connectivity.

    The Hospitals will contain numerous security and safety systems to provide a high level of safety and security for patients, staff, and


    The Safety Systems include the Fire Alarm System and the associated Voice Evacuation.

    The Security Systems include an Access Control and Identity Management that is compatible with the overall campus security system to provide secured facilities as well as segregation and tracking of people and a Digital Video Management System to provide surveillance of the public areas of the hospital.

    For all hospitals except the Neuroscience Center, an Infant Protection System will be provided to ensure that all infants within the Labor and Delivery Department, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and Post-Partum Patient Room areas are not separated from their mothers/care providers or removed without authorization from the premises. All of these systems will utilize the active and passive infrastructure to the greatest extent possible and as allowed by code.

    A Storage Area Network (SAN) will be utilized for the storage of security surveillance video. For Riyadh facilities, the existing Campus IT Storage Area Network (SAN) will be expanded with the components associated with the hospital SAN. For the Jeddah facilities, a single overall SAN will be provided in the new campus data center. For all other facilities, a SAN will be provided within the hospitals MDF. The SAN may also act as the central repository for all general and medical data files required as noted within the medical equipment narrative.

    Each hospital facility will also contain numerous Low Current and Communication Systems for the enhancement of medical care.

    A Voice over IP (VoIP) telephone system will provide voice communication and telephone devices to all applicable spaces within the hospital as well as a Public Address function to provide specific zone paging, and overall pages.

    A Master Clock System will be provided to act as the Network Timing Protocol (NTP) Server for the Hospital systems as well as provide the analog and digital master clock displays in all facilities noted in this contract.

    A master distributed Television system will be implemented over the network using IPTV technology to provide general TV programs from satellite or other program sources as well as

    Video on Demand and Patient Education and Entertainment. Infrastructure will be provided to support future interactive systems such as dynamic information and way finding. Middleware servers and software will be provided for IPTV, Patient Education and Entertainment, interactivity, control, management, scheduling, mapping, way finding, visual paging, messaging, education, and entertainment. Patient Education and Entertainment will be provided only in public/common areas.

    Audio Visual systems will be provided in the various conference rooms, operation rooms, and other locations within the hospital. The systems will include all display, input, and control equipment for each local space.

    A Nurse Call System will be utilized for patient safety while streamlining nurse call station communications.

    Space in communications rooms will be provided for a Distributed Antenna System provided by others to assure reception of GSM mobile telephone signals in the Hospital.

    Lastly, in order to support green initiatives as well as LEED certification requirements where applicable, all Technology equipment will be Energy Star 4.0 certified products, as applicable. All products will bear the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (ROHS), as applicable. All servers, desktop computers, and storage equipment will be virtualized to maximize the use of available assets without wasting energy. Likewise, monitors will utilize LED backlit technology instead of cold-cathode fluorescent to reduce energy consumption, as applicable.

    The Technology systems included in the contractor scope of work are further defined in the following narratives.

    5.1.2 oVerall iCt Design goals: Flexibility

    The design of the technology systems will be made with a clear understanding of the future of each technology. Infrastructure (pathways and spaces) will be designed for the latest technology in fiber optic and copper media with consideration for future technology additions. Systems will be scalable and ready for anticipated growth and interface with disparate systems. Serviceability

    Only technologies that make sense, based on the typical hospital staff knowledge, will be considered for deployment. For example, systems that run under operating systems that differ from the expected levels of staff knowledge will not be deployed. Infection Control

    Infection control policies will be considered during the design phase of the project. One goal of a hospital IT department should be to mitigate the reasons to open and enter the above ceiling space. Networks will be scaled to mitigate that requirement. Wireless networks will be collapsed as much as makes sense to decrease the amount of infrastructure above ceiling spaces which will inherently decrease the number of times those spaces need to be accessed. Reliability

    Topologies and infrastructure components within a healthcare facility must be reliable. Careful consideration will be given to the redundancies and expected end of life cycles of all technology components. ICT Design Criteria

    Optimize process workflow Provide instant and convenient access to patient information Provide effective integration of disparate clinical and facility

    information systems throughout the hospital and throughout the National Guard Health Affairs services

    Enhance the patient and family experience Continue the culture of patient-centered care Maintain high levels of patient/family satisfaction Reduce the incidence of medical errors Design systems and infrastructure for ease of expansion Design systems and infrastructure for high-availability and

    for ease of maintenance and operation
