Webinar
April 2019 Webinar
By combining observation, interviews, simulation, and rapid prototyping, this team developed design solutions that help healthcare workers stay safe while engaged in challenging tasks. This webinar brings the experience of the healthcare practitioners who cared for Ebola patients during the 2014 outbreak and introduces a human-centered discovery approach developed by design researchers at SimTigrate Design Lab to define the design requirements of spaces where the risk of self- and cross-contamination is the highest.
Webinar
March 2019 Webinar
This webinar will focus on a case study on the efficient design of one of the largest treatment centers for infectious diseases in the U.S. The University of Texas Medical Branch Galveston’s new six-bed bio-containment critical care unit will serve as a multifunctional patient care space that is equipped to treat patients with the most highly contagious diseases.

Design Strategies
January 2016 Design Strategies
A clean healthcare environment helps improve an organization’s infection prevention efforts, patient satisfaction, and bottom-line.  The built environment design constitutes a key component of a systems approach to keeping the healthcare environment clean.
EDAC Advocate Firm Project
September 2012 EDAC Advocate Firm Project
The goal for this project was to create a patient-centered healthcare facility, using EBD, objectives include: wayfinding integrated into the architecture, zoned circulation - separation of on-stage and off-stage flow, and clear access to patient care areas with minimal travel distances. 
EDAC Advocate Firm Project
September 2011 EDAC Advocate Firm Project
The goal for this project was to create a world-class facility using evidence-based design (EBD), LEED, and patient- and family–centered strategies. The re-design of the Ft. Bliss Army Medical Center not only took into account the Military Health System (MHS) World-Class Checklist, but also information gathered from 14 EBD working groups to further influence the design.

January 2015 Webinar
In 2014, Dodge Data and Analytics (DD&A) conducted a wide-reaching study of the perception of building impacts on health among design and construction industry professionals in the commercial, institutional and residential sectors, medical professionals, human resources executives and owners. This webinar presents the findings of this study. The presentation incorporates findings from other DD&A studies on the importance of collaboration, which can be a critical factor for preserving both green and healthy building priorities by addressing uncertainties that can have negative impacts on project cost, schedule and quality. 
Webinar
June 2014 Webinar
This presentation provides information on the current incidence of healthcare-associated infections in U.S. hospitals and design & construction considerations that can help prevent these outcomes. Examples of published outbreaks related to design and construction activity are provided. In addition, specific examples of design options and construction risk mitigation measures will be reviewed.

April 2013 Webinar
Twelve sponsoring health systems, representing 500 hospitals and 30 billion in purchasing, have kicked off the Healthier Hospitals Initiative, a free, three-year initiative, where enrollees can build upon their proven environmental improvement strategies for cost savings and measured environmental improvements.  Learn about the Healthier Hospitals Initiative and be part of a growing movement of facilities and organizations that are working together create healthier environments and lead communities to a healthier future.
Tool
August 2015 Tool
Developed through extensive review of research, surveys, site tests, and review and validation by expert advisory council members, this standard set of evidence-based design checklists and post-occupancy evaluation (POE) tools can be used by interior designers to apply research to healthcare design projects and to conduct post-occupancy evaluations of three types of hospital patient rooms: adult medical-surgical, adult intensive care, and maternity care.
