Mark Your Calendars for a Workshop on The Emergency Department -
Considerations for Innovations &
Strategic Design

Register Today

May 11-12, 2016
Chicago, IL

Designing a new or renovating an existing emergency department is a high stakes opportunity. Today, more than ever, emergency department directors balance a range of competing priorities, including:

  • increased volume and overcrowding
  • patient acuity and behavioral health
  • safety vs. satisfaction
  • delayed “up-stream” throughput, and other system bottle-necks

Attend this 1.5 day event and learn how to quantify and measure those challenges and explore design innovations, processes and facility based solutions.

Obtain insight into:

  • optimal patient flow
  • research-based process
  • design interventions and strategies to  improve clinical outcomes, quality of care, and patient safety and satisfaction
  • how to employ proven physical design strategies and methodologies

Meet the faculty and learn about early bird registration savings HERE.
