Building Information Modelling in Healthcare Design and Construction- a Bibliometric Review and Systematic Review


Healthcare facilities play a key role in responding United Nations goals, such as sustainability, health and welling. The outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic has driven much attention to expanding healthcare capacity through advanced digital technologies, such as Building Information Modelling (BIM). Nevertheless, a systematic review of research achievements is lacking. This re- search uses bibliometric and systemic literature review methods to investigate BIM applications in Healthcare Design and Construction (HDC). The biblio- metric investigation focuses on country, journal co-citation, and keyword clus- tering analyses. The systematic review classifies application domains, BIM ac- tions, and other digital technologies accompanying BIM. Finally, 17 major BIM actions are summarized for six major domains, including operability, resilience, collaboration, sustainability and constructability. This study reveals that the outbreak of COVID-19 has greatly stimulated the academic interest in digital technologies for HDC, and there is geographical uniqueness highly relevant to local government policies and national healthcare services. However, related re- search is still in a relatively preliminary stage.
