The materials and surfaces used in the environments where people receive healthcare have been evolving for decades and are essential to positive healthcare outcomes. The criticality of the COVID pandemic underscored this and demanded that healthcare delivery processes and spaces be radically rethought.

This engaging webinar panel will bring together a group of industry thought leaders, designers and infection preventionists to explore next steps in the deployment of materials and surfaces. Panelists will share the current state of the practice, what we can do now, and will look at near term developments to forecast “what’s next”. Hear about innovations and applications into the future with new models and processes that could reshape the future of health, wellness and how and where we will receive care.
