The real challenge of the AIA/AAH PDC Planning + Design Student Challenge is to produce a compelling design-to-budget proposal with teammates drawn from a hat. Creating an effective team is as important as the solution itself. This roundtable discussion with student-faculty advisors will be about team development and collaboration. The issues we will address are not unlike those encountered by teams in real life, and lessons from the challenge can be applied to in-house training programs and to academia.

Learning Objectives:

  • Garner faculty perspectives on training the next generation to work through differences in professional thought and work processes.

Identification: 1900

Credits: None available.

The hospital system transformed a former hospital into a medical village hub. The hub embodies population health concepts to improve wellness, health education, and nutrition and engages a variety of visitors. Residents are attracted to the health information resource center, community activity and education center, nurse clinics, retail tech bar, and telehealth systems. A new community education program encourages residents to better manage their wellness. The healthy village allows patients to truly understand and improve their health outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Program an outpatient facility with an aging, declining population, understanding code/safety mandates.
  • Explore ways to preserve and enhance culture through an existing outpatient facility.
  • Integrate telehealth for a new type of health care delivery understanding space needs to effectively deliver.

The planning and design of behavioral facilities can improve the well-being and outcomes of people with mental health issues. Behavioral health is no longer one-size-fits-all; facilities require different approaches to design along the continuum of care. The presentation will cover industry trends within the continuum of care and population health and how primary and secondary research can inform planning and design of behavioral health facilities to enhance the therapeutic goals and well-being of people with mental health issues.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define specific needs along the continuum of care, from an inpatient intensive behavioral health unit to outpatient and rehab facilities.
  • Explore how aspects of the built environment affect the health, safety, and welfare of these vulnerable populations.

How Performance-Driven Health Care Is Shaping of Facility Design Standards

Mar 26, 2018 1:45pm ‐ Mar 26, 2018 2:45pm

Identification: 2001

Credits: None available.

Health care providers face increasing challenges: higher quality, safer, lower cost care in environments that appeal to consumers. As organizations expand and affiliate, new opportunities can leverage the use of standards to support these objectives. This case study of BJC HealthCare shares how the system develops, implements, evaluates, and updates standards used across facilities. Truly useful standards represent an investment. The discussion will include how to identify the value of this investment and how to communicate that value to your organization. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define standards that are actionable.
  • Organize a process that both allows and supports continuous improvement: definition, implementation, evaluation, and redefinition.
  • Describe how to document and use a working standard with design teams. How does information feed-forward?
  • Communicate the value of the investment to your organization.
