    June 2015 Webinar
    The Military Health System (MHS) includes over 300 Medical Centers, Hospitals and Clinics located worldwide on Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps installations. In 2011, the MHS began transforming its over 440 primary care practices within MTFs into the PCMH model of care and adopted NCQA PCMH standards to establish consistent Tri-Service operating principles, which the Uniformed Services used to develop MTF operating guidance. As a result, the MHS has been able to standardize business and clinical operational workflow, appointing/scheduling templates, staffing models, performance measures, goals and a capitated revised financing model.

    May 2015 Webinar
    This session will review information from the HCAHPS and Press Ganey Surveys to understand how reliably patient expectations related to room cleanliness are being met. These data help to identify the types of hospitals and patients that are most at risk for poor cleanliness reports. The webinar examines ways in which these perceptions are related to other organizational outcomes, including “positive word of mouth” and hospital-acquired infection scores. The session ends with a review of design considerations to facilitate room cleaning and improving patient perceptions of cleanliness.

    April 2015 Webinar
    Much of illumination design and science are concerned with the delivery of optimal lighting conditions to the human eye. There are many more effects than those involving vision, sleep, and circadian rhythms. This presentation will use an "inside-out" approach to consideration of effects of light, by taking a look at how the human nervous system works, and how light is involved in non-visual responses.

    Is it possible to decrease patient fall injury severity using a flooring material? Playground surfaces are required to have a force reduction factor to reduce the number and severity of head injuries among children. This is not true yet for healthcare flooring. This presentation describes the role flooring material has on patient and resident falls and fall injury, and identifies current and future research study needs.

    February 2015 Webinar
    The built environment plays a critical role on the health and wellbeing of its inhabitants, including: the advent of the evidence-based methodology on disruptive innovation in healthcare design; biophilia as a baseline for the shift to our inordinate amount of sedentary time indoors; how to access color and light, and their misunderstood impact on an occupant’s experience; discussion of issues related to acoustical integrity of our environments; environments that encourage interaction, communication and the healing power of touch; and an assessment of how design impacts “life indoors” through a review of best practices.
