February 2018 Webinar
In this interactive webinar, attendees will explore an expanded view of patient experience and the current State of Patient Experience shared via The Beryl Institute’s 2017 study. The presenter will also dig into what ultimately influences experience and how it impacts all we aspire to achieve in healthcare.   In elevating the human experience at the heart of healthcare we cannot overlook the needs of all voices engaged and the place in which experience occurs. Ultimately our conversation will engage us in why environment matters to patient experience and what we can do to ensure this remains central to our work in healthcare.

Art and Science.  In their finest expressions, they are one and the same. We face complex problems and no single approach can provide all the answers.  One cannot be a socially responsible designer or scientist without using both intuition and research. This presentation will cite historical and contemporary examples of individuals who support their simultaneous use to achieve creativity. The presentation will include a discussion of the definitions of art and science and the nature of the human mind.

January 2018 Webinar
When we design healthcare facilities, we may not always have a complete understanding of how we can proactively design for safety and account for risk beyond fire and life safety. How can we more effectively consider safety issues like infections, falls, medication errors, injuries associated with patient handing or behavioral health, and security? This webinar introduces the new, easier to use, online interface for The Center’s Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) toolkit, a proactive and systematic approach to designing and renovating healthcare facilities for safety. Originally developed through research and consensus to support the requirements of the FGI Guidelines, The Center's research team will walk you through the why, what, and how of each part of the online SRA toolkit illustrating features with vignettes gathered from the testing process.

Remember doctor’s visits when you were growing up? The wooden tongue depressor. The well-worn stethoscope. As design harnesses digital, materials, and networking technologies, a very new health experience is just over the horizon. Proactive, lifestyle design, tracking real-time health data, non-invasive tools and custom “just for you” treatments based on your actual genome, are here. Together they are leading us to “stage zero” detection and treatment which has the potential to double or better the lifespan of every first-world citizen. This webinar highlights the macro factors shaping these realities, along with an in-depth exploration of the various impacts of and opportunities for design.

The Military Health System is moving all primary care to the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of care within a spectrum of purpose-designed healthcare buildings and retrofits of older medical facilities. The goal is to achieve better experience of care, per capita cost, population health, and overall readiness. This session summarizes the newest research evidence about how design can improve the delivery of team-based ambulatory care, discusses new metrics being delivered jointly between the Military Health System and Georgia Tech, and discusses how to design for a system with a wide spectrum of purpose-designed healthcare buildings and retrofits of older medical facilities.

September 2017 Webinar
Over the last decade, design research for healthcare practice has become a valuable in-house commodity used to inform planning and design. For most firms, it is no longer a question of whether to practice Evidencebased Design (EBD), but rather how to. Many firms with limited resources turn to outside research consultants and materials shared by large firm's research departments. How can these firms more closely integrate EBD into their practice through internal initiatives? This webinar shares strategies for getting started, sustaining, and growing EBD within a firm. Design researchers from a small and medium sized firm share opportunities and challenges they encountered to describe lessons learned while launching an EBD initiative within their respective firms.

Collaboration is the key to outstanding healthcare art programs that meet both individual facility goals and create integrated visual experiences. In fact, the most successful projects are those in which you cannot tell where the architect’s/designer’s job ended and the art consultant’s job began. This webinar provides a roadmap for establishing a collaborative process that results in an effective and valued art program.
