Project Brief
May 2019 Project Brief
Learn about: how a variety of approaches—including research, observation, and process mapping exercises—were used in conjunction to develop the new design plans, why the architectural team relied on existing staff, patients, and families to understand which needs to address in the redesign, and how envisioning the new center as a “house” could better support the needs of patients and families.

Webinar
May 2018 Webinar
 In this webinar, presenters will explore how the Internet of Things and clinical systems can work together to positively impact clinical operations and patient experiences. 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?

Design Strategies
June 2016 Design Strategies
Technology is one of the most challenging issues in healthcare. The current combination of recent health reform laws, federal stimulus funds, and the ongoing wave of new healthcare technology can be described as a “tsunami” of sorts. Healthcare leaders are overwhelmed, as planning for the future of technology stands to transform many current care practices.  Successfully integrating technology means planning for today as well as anticipating future needs, and directly impacts the programming, planning, and design of all healthcare settings.
