Understanding the personal abilities and unique challenges faced by aging individuals, especially those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, better equips design teams to create supportive care and living spaces. Changes that can be credited to dementia are noticeably different from the changes typical of normal aging, but both can occur at the same time.
Learn about: the personal abilities and unique challenges faced by aging individuals, including those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, how thoughtful design can reduce stress associated with declining physical abilities, memory loss, and care provision.
This webinar will share case studies and lessons learned from new and emerging examples of care delivery, including microhospitals; virtual care centers; and innovative clinical care models that are more nimble, cost and operationally efficient, and respond more directly to patient expectations.
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.
In this webinar, attendees will learn how the University of Virginia Medical Center was able to improve the patient experience and increase individualized patient care by moving its endoscopy department outside of the main hospital campus.
This webinar will identify an implementation strategy to embed a “culture of health” in your projects. Case studies and demonstrable examples from around the world illuminate how healthcare organizations and designers are working at all geographic scales to remake health-promoting places, spaces, and things.
This webinar provides attendees with a case study overview of the 2018 Center for Health Design Touchstone Award winning ProMedica Health and Wellness Center. Attendees will gain an understanding of the impact the physical environment has on productivity and throughput and how the relationship between facility design, human experience and organizational efficiency in the outpatient healthcare setting is undergoing a paradigm shift.
This webinar explores how out of a vision from renowned child psychiatrist and human geneticist Dr. Matthew State, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Child, Teen & Family Center and Department of Psychiatry Building will be the first-ever UCSF facility for both pediatric and adult psychiatric patients and one of the first facilities in the U.S. to integrate the neurosciences with traditional psychiatry for child, adolescent and adult patient populations.
This webinar will share experiences in planning microhospitals, discuss key operational areas, and illustrate clinical innovations that would support this model. Microhospitals have become popular in many areas as a solution to help health systems grow market share and deliver greater value. Microhospitals require a clear strategy, a sound operational model, and a clinical support plan in order to be successful.
