The research is now conclusive - the design of the healthcare environment greatly influences patient satisfaction, employee performance, clinical outcomes, and operational efficiency.
Incorporate proven design innovations into your new construction or renovation plans. Based on the work of The Center for Healthcare Design (CHD), this book provides the latest information on evidence-based design from the experts at the forefront of healthcare design research. The authors use actual results from pioneering organizations to illustrate the impact of evidence-based design on medical outcomes, safety, and the bottom line.
Recommended by The Center for Healthcare Design and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), this book shows you how to use design to:
- Earn patient loyalty and improve satisfaction
- Improve outcomes by reducing patient stress
- Increase staff effectiveness and loyalty
- Reduce patient falls and hospital-acquired infections
- Foster cultural change in your organization
The book also includes advice from hospital CEOs who used evidence-based design principles to build extraordinary facilities. Their stories will educate and inspire you to not just build a new structure but create the optimal healing environment for patients, staff, and visitors.
