Behavioral Health Care Integration: IP, OP, and ED

STUDIO E, an ERDMAN Center of Thought Leadership & Innovation in Healthcare, is working with several behavioral health clients on the hypothesis, “Can concepts driving culture change in senior living and other aspects of  healthcare – such as small household design and on-stage/off-stage planning – translate in a behavioral healthcare setting to facilitate an effective balance between safety and patient comfort, dignity, and control?” Related to this hypothesis is the thought: Can architecture influence behavior? We believe the answer is yes, by having a human-scaled environment of care. In support of the ongoing work around this hypothesis, Jennifer will share case studies and work on the boards of a variety of projects embracing this approach.
