El Paso County Hospital District, dba University Medical Center, passed a bond in 2013 to expand its services by adding additional community-based clinics. The first of these will be the West Clinic, which will serve as the prototype. The West Clinic is designed around a modular pod for long-term flexibility in uses and scheduling. The pods accommodate primary and specialty care and there is a separate module for Lab and Imaging (including MRI, CT, X-ray, Mammography, Ultrasound, and Bone Density).

How does healthcare facility programming change when new telemedicine technologies move the conversation from the need for flexible facilities to what facilities may become unnecessary? The most influential disruptive technologies have been virtual, redefining the roles of health professionals and forcing the design community to reconsider what kinds of facilities are needed for care delivery. These virtual care technologies are having significant influence on healthcare design because they demand very different kinds of facilities, and in some cases no facilities at all. This presentation will feature these disruptive telemedicine technologies and explore their potential to launch a virtual medical care delivery model that challenges the heart of our healthcare system—the patient-doctor relationship.

No one likes to wait, especially in a doctor’s office, where the person sitting next to you may have an illness you don’t want to catch. Yet how do you design a clinic and its workflow without a waiting room, where exam rooms are always free for the next patient, where patients make their own way through the halls, and where providers and staff easily know where to go next? In this webinar, you will learn about an innovative clinic design and care-delivery model, as well as the real-time locating system (RTLS) technology that supports it.

The “smart” building, one that uses a building management system to monitor and adjust HVAC and other systems to make the building more energy-efficient, has become a well-recognized and expected part of new healthcare construction. But can the smart building become even smarter? Can it be integrated with other technologically driven systems to be not just a smart building but a clinically smart building? In this session, presenters will explore how the Internet of Things and clinical systems can work together to positively impact clinical operations and patient experiences.

Microhospitals have become popular in many areas as a solution to help health systems grow market share and deliver greater value. Microhospitals require a clear strategy, a sound operational model, and a clinical support plan in order to be successful. The potential for a significant impact on a health system’s future in response to the changing economics and clinical delivery of healthcare is exciting. This session will share experiences in planning microhospitals, discuss key operational areas, and illustrate clinical innovations that would support this model.

Adolescence can be a tumultuous time in one’s life. Mental health conditions often surface during this stage, and it may be the first time that some patients enter an inpatient behavioral health unit. How can design best support this patient population that is transitioning from childhood to adulthood? Learn how a design team utilized research, Lean processes, and innovation to solve the challenges of this unique patient population for the 27-bed Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit in Tacoma, Wash. Find out how design can support a seclusion- and restraint-free care model and how pushing beyond the conventions of behavioral healthcare design was achieved.
