Following the emergent importance of benefits realisation applied to healthcare infrastructure and service development programs, HaCIRIC has undertaken a research initiative targeting the development of a robust and comprehensive Benefits Realisation (BeReal) process. The aim of this research was to develop new understanding on the use of benefits realisation management in the context of the built environment within healthcare programmes. This new understanding fostered and emphasised the development of benefits realisation management tools and methods that embrace self-checking processes and improve process visibility. It aimed to bring a notoriously traditionally fragmented community together through workshops and shared aims and overall vision.
