Credits: None available.

Standard: $30.00

Description

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.
