Value-based care, patient safety, and patient-centered care are emerging as key drivers in health care reform. Things have changed, but often as a byproduct of financial reform. Belatedly, safety and quality benchmarks are being integrated into all health care organizations’ infrastructure, design, procurement, and delivery strategic goals. There is an urgent need to engage the design community in accelerating the co-production of health care and wellness with patients, families, communities, architects, and designers.
This session will enable attendees to:
Identify the characteristics by which healthy health care delivery spaces differ from traditional clinics and offices.
Describe the importance and benefits of adaptive, healthy work environments that meet the lifestyle and individual needs of clinicians, employees, and managers.
Recognize and respond to significant design challenges inherent in health care design.
Discuss the impact of design on creating trust and loyalty and supporting sensemaking by employees and clinicians.
