Description

Every year an estimated $20 billion is spent and approximately 75,000 people die as a result of healthcare-associated infections in the United States. The solutions that will eliminate HAIs must include a collaborative effort in design thinking by all constituents. In 2015, seven multidisciplinary firms entered a design competition to prevent HAIs and then joined forces to form The HAIO Patient Room Challenge Group. We are eager to share our story, process, and solutions with architects and health leaders. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Unearth the truths and myths of infection prevention.
  • Explore other industries for healthcare-acquired infection solutions.
  • Identify the importance of collaborative design.
  • Discuss known and found HAI-prevention barriers in the implementation phase of a project.

Speaker(s):

  • Paula Wright, RN, BSN, CIC, Director, Infection Control Unit, Massachasetts General Hospital
  • Cathleen Lange, AIA, Principal, Shepley Bulfinch
  • Alison Faecher, IIDA, NCIDQ, LEED Accredited Professional , Director of Interior Design, SmithGroupJJR
