Health Guidelines Revision Committee
The Health Guidelines Revision Committee (HGRC) is a select multidisciplinary consensus body of about 100 clinicians, administrators, architects, engineers, and representatives from authorities having jurisdiction that is convened to revise and update the FGI Guidelines documents. As a group, HGRC members are experts on the many issues addressed in the Guidelines.
Participation of individuals with such a wide range of expertise helps make the documents ones that truly reflect a variety of clinical, administrative, engineering, and design concerns and are indeed based on interdisciplinary consensus.
FGI is committed to finding the best people from a variety of professions to debate and discuss setting minimum standards with the goal of reaching consensus on what is fundamental to the development of safe, effective care environments. We collaborate with other standard-setting organizations in the health care design industry and utilize the best available research. All of this collaboration enhances the credibility of the Guidelines and our work as an organization.
