    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.

    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.

    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.

    Healthy soundscapes are paramount to the missions of hospitals: patients need to sleep and heal without unnecessary environmental stressors; staff, patients, and family need to communicate accurately but privately; staff need to be able to localize alarms and calls for help. There is growing research evidence of the potentially negative effects of poor soundscapes on hospital occupants. Explore recent findings from the Healthcare Acoustics Research Team (HART), an international collaboration of specialists in architecture, engineering, medicine, nursing, and psychology.
