Evidence-Based Design Touchstone Award Recipients to be Recognized at Healthcare Design Expo & Conference
Award Recipients Commit to Using Evidence-Based Design
to Achieve Improved Outcomes
Concord, CA – The Center for Health Design will celebrate the Evidence-Based Design Touchstone Award recipients in November at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The award recognizes the use of an evidence-based design process in the pursuit of increasing value, improving outcomes, and engaging stakeholders.
Submissions were judged based upon their achievement across three touchstones of the EBD process:
- Collaborate: Submissions must demonstrate interdisciplinary team and stakeholder education, engagement and development.
- Evaluate: Submissions must demonstrate the extent to which research was found, evaluated, and applied to link design to outcomes and measurement of results.
- Share: Submissions must demonstrate how the EBD process was applied and how the knowledge gained was captured, disseminated, and has the potential for application to future projects.
An expert panel consisting of key industry stakeholders — academics, architects, designers, healthcare executives, planners, facility executives, patient and family advisors, and researchers reviewed each submission.
Three levels of the award are given: Silver, Gold and Platinum — each reflecting successively greater application and achievement of the EBD process and principles.
The 2019 Evidence-Based Design Touchstone Award recipients include:
- Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin / 7 North Tower Medical Surgical Unit Build-out, (HGA)
- New Parkland Hospital, (HDR)
- Children's Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University Health (VCUH) System, (HKS)
