Health Access International has hands-on experience writing integrated feasibility studies and business plans for private clients, NGO’s and for the public sector. A solid business plan or study is pivotal to attract financing for a project.
We can perform various types of Feasibility Studies. Typical examples are:
- a hospital expansion, modernisation or new build project
- supply of medical equipment and related systems
Our healthcare consultants and financial specialists cooperate closely with the client to achieve predefined deliverables. The study typically consists of:
- Market analysis
- Operational plan
Medical program of requirements
Training & maintenance
- Financial plan
- Funding plan
- Project implementation plan
A pre-feasibility study with reduced scope or depth is also possible.
Based on a Site Survey and the Program of Requirements, we initially prepare a Conceptual Design of your hospital consisting of a Volume Design and a Cluster Lay-out. Our design process is done in close cooperation with the client using workshops and expert meetings. The Conceptual Design is normally an integral part of the Feasibility Study as it provides input for the Investment Plan.
Medical Equipment Planning
The functional selection and budgeting of Medical Equipment and related goods can be done for an existing facility as a separate project or as an integral part of a hospital design process. In case of a hospital design, our Medical Equipment specialists perform an early analysis of (non) Medical Equipment requirements and budgets as this is relevant for the financing structure chosen and the technical interface with the hospital design. It also enables us to prepare a competitive and reliable procurement process later on in the project.
Health Access International’s Funding Plan is an integral part of the Feasibility Study / Business Plan. We optimise the project, based on the client’s existing financial figures, the proposed investment and cash flow projections, to qualify for commercial finance, export finance, grants or concessional loans and include an analyses of various funding scenarios. For more details on possible financing structures and the implementation of the Funding Plan, see our Financing page.
Architectural Plan & Project Start up
Once the feasibility of the project has been proven, the Preliminary Architectural and Engineering Design phase starts. Our specialised hospital architects work together with your team and local design bureaus to ensure both international and local standards are met. In addition to an Architectural Plan, this phase includes a Medical Equipment plan, a more accurate investment calculation, legal aspects, a project implementation plan and social and environmental impact studies when required.
In this phase we also implement the Funding Plan in close cooperation with the client and our financial partners.
For financing and risk control reasons, your long term plans are phased into individual projects and a Master Plan ensures an integrated development of the total building structure.
