July 2018 Webinar
Specialized designs and technologies, often mandated by the ADA Accessibility Standards, are inadequate to meet the needs and abilities of older adults.  In contrast, universal design is an appropriate, but underused strategy for design for aging.  On the one hand, universal design is seen as merely another name for specialized designed, while on the other hand, it has been dismissed as an unattainable utopian panacea.  This webinar will trace the history of universal design, from its beginnings as a utopian concept in the world of physical objects and spaces, to the struggle for attainment through the often times contradictory Principles, to a practical reconceptualization in the world of emerging and evolving digital technologies. The webinar will describe what UD is and what it is not; why it’s potential to be a panacea for design for aging is unattainable in the physical world from which it emerged, and how it is poised to become a reality and fulfill its promise through the world of digital technologies.

June 2018 Webinar
How does healthcare facility programming change when new telemedicine technologies move the conversation from the need for flexible facilities to what facilities may become unnecessary? The most influential disruptive technologies have been virtual, redefining the roles of health professionals and forcing the design community to reconsider what kinds of facilities are needed for care delivery. These virtual care technologies are having significant influence on healthcare design because they demand very different kinds of facilities, and in some cases no facilities at all. This presentation will feature these disruptive telemedicine technologies and explore their potential to launch a virtual medical care delivery model that challenges the heart of our healthcare system—the patient-doctor relationship.

No one likes to wait, especially in a doctor’s office, where the person sitting next to you may have an illness you don’t want to catch. Yet how do you design a clinic and its workflow without a waiting room, where exam rooms are always free for the next patient, where patients make their own way through the halls, and where providers and staff easily know where to go next? In this webinar, you will learn about an innovative clinic design and care-delivery model, as well as the real-time locating system (RTLS) technology that supports it.
