Description

Clinical practice and improved operations are substantially reducing inpatient lengths of stay while increasing services provided in an outpatient setting. What is the appropriate setting for these short-stay patients that promotes the best clinical outcomes and patient and family experience, but doesn’t use the space and resources of an inpatient unit? This presentation will review the clinical, operational, and facility requirements of short-stay units both inside and outside of the hospital.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess why short stay units are the result of ongoing changes in healthcare reimbursement and clinical practice.
  • Review code requirements for short stay units and how they may be inadequate for an optimum patient experience.
  • Evaluate the types of short-stay settings both inside and outside of the traditional hospital and the key design elements that research says supports best practices and patient experience.
  • Review a case study of an innovative short stay approach designed to provide care in a welcoming outpatient environment.

Speaker(s):

  • Sheila Cahnman, FAIA, FACHA, LEED AP, President, JumpGarden Consulting LLC
  • Alice Gittler, EDAC, LEED Green Associate, Lean/Six Sigma for Healthcare, Healthcare Design Research, EwingCole
