Design Diagnostics Bringing Evidence to the Planning Process

Mar 14, 2017 8:15am ‐ Mar 14, 2017 9:15am

Identification: 1556

Credits: None available.

A design diagnostic offers a comprehensive tool to quantify the environmental and human experience of an environment. At Christiana Care Health System, the design diagnostic identified the configuration of the space into cores as inefficient. Behavior mapping revealed crowding in the ED and family and patients in non-patient areas. This material informed the design of the future ED. This session focuses on the process and uses of a design diagnostic, the implementation of the tool, and the effect on planning an ED.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the benefits of analyzing facility design, human experience, and organizational efficiency in care environments.
  • Describe tools used in assessing an existing environment.
  • Assess existing environments using tools from a design diagnostic.
  • Explore a case study where a design diagnostic was used to inform design.

Identification: 1446

Credits: None available.

Health care organizations are leveraging community and facility environments to engage patients, encourage healthy behaviors, improve access to care, and improve population health outcomes. The session will focus on possible outpatient facility design solutions and their implementation in organizations that are leading the endeavor to achieve the Quadruple Aim: improving the patient experience, improving quality and safety, reducing costs, and retaining staff. A health care CEO will share real-world experiences of implementation and evaluation across multiple sites.

Identification: 1771

Credits: None available.

Please Note: ASHE was not allowed to record this session.

The list of revolutionary forces bombarding hospitals and health systems is long and growing. Systemic changes in the foundations of health care are occurring relating to who pays for care, how providers are reimbursed, and how patient behavior changes when they become consumers. As if those challenges weren't enough, we are seeing people being "hospitalized" at home, health care moving to a retail format, disruptive technology and consumerism threatening the legacy players - and WE are the legacy players. This presentation will review the gathering disruptive forces that threaten our business models and our models of governance and leadership, and will challenge leadership to lead in new ways with new metrics of success.

  • List the macro forces converging to put revolutionary pressure on the U.S. health care system in general and hospitals and health systems in particular.
  • Explain likely impacts on hospitals and health systems in different scenario-based situations.
  • Discuss the consequences of failing to respond to these environmental and political pressures.
  • Describe practical leadership strategies and techniques to maintain the relevancy of your organization in the face of these trends.
