Design Strategies
October 2016 Design Strategies
Overview  Drawing on the roots of public health, a new focus on population health has become a national mandate driven by financial incentives such as updated insurance models, changes in reimbursement, and long-term savings potential. Healthcare systems, hospitals, and clinics are integrating population health as a key part of their mission, operations, and services. It is imperative for designers, architects, and planners to understand this new landscape and their important role in designing for health.

December 2015 Tool
This Ambulatory Care Center Design Tool (ACCDT), developed by Dr. Anjali Joseph and Dr. Zahra Zamani from Clemson University in collaboration with The Center for Health Design (CHD), builds upon a series of papers, best practice case studies and in-depth literature reviews conducted by CHD as well as CHD's Clinic Design Post-Occupancy Evaluation Toolkit – Tool 2 Audit of Physical Environment with additions from a thesis by Crews (2013). The tool supports design teams in making key design decisions about ambulatory care centers linked to evidence based design goals and principles.
