Healthcare Emerging Trends
When designed around human needs, community spaces help create better experiences for patients and families by fostering more meaningful uses of time and increasing confidence that they are receiving the best care throughout every step of their journey.
Settings where teamworks thrives and new work styles are supported, paired with environments where caregivers can relax and recharge, leads to greater job satisfaction, reduced stress, and more responsive patient service.
When the elements of people and place are holistically considered, the results are patient rooms that bring patients and families together—aiding in the patient’s recovery and welcoming family as active participants in the care journey.
Virtual care spaces must support coming together to problem solve and collaborate. These spaces can range from a hybrid exam room, to a small huddle room, to a private booth space. Design is critical when creating a space that provides an equitable experience for both caregiver and patient.
In today’s health environments, adaptability and flexibility are critical. Spaces must be responsive to the different needs of facilities to maximize efficiency and the quality of care.
