The Prescription: Setting a New Standard in Healthcare Design

  • Yawkey Center 450 Brookline Ave Boston, MA, 02215 United States

The design of responsibly built environments directly impacts the safety, operation, clinical outcomes, and financial success of healthcare facilities now and into the future. 

How does the role of patient-centered design....

  • intersect with evidence-based design and medicine?
  • improve the user experience and patient outcomes?
  • improve staff proficiency and well-being?
  • impact the increasing shift from volume-based to value-based care?
  • impact cost-control opportunities and initiatives?
  • anticipate and integrate new technology?
