This Interactive Design Tool Provides a Deeper Understanding of How to Make Healthcare Facilities Safer and More Efficient for All
Last year, Marie Wikoff of Wikoff Design Studio in Reno, Nevada, acquired the Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification (EDAC). The accreditation is highly sought after because individuals with this level of expertise can improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs through design.
The Center for Health Design provides industry tools that EDAC healthcare design professionals can use to gain a deeper understanding of how to make healthcare facilities safer and more efficient for all. The interactive design tool accessible here, shows design outcomes and strategies pertaining to a Primary Care Exam Room.
Primary Care Exam Room
Primary care exam rooms are becoming the center of the healthcare experience. Technological advances, point-of-care testing, and improved organizational flow models are streamlining the patient experience. Because of this, patients will spend the majority of their visit inside the exam room instead of moving around among waiting areas, consult rooms, labs, or separate treatment spaces.
Many primary care exam rooms are being redesigned to foster a caregiver-patient relationship and to accommodate the changing needs of technology. By designing the exam room to be more patient-centric, providers and care teams can significantly enhance effectiveness, efficiency, comfort, safety, and quality of care.
