It made me think about how I'd do it differently, and how I'd want a doctor to treat me.  After the class I had a discussion with a friend of mine in PA school about the lack of classes teaching how to talk to the patients. The PA students think that this type of education is takes away from their serious studies. I feel that patient centered care needs to begin in the education of everyone working in a healthcare setting. Shared decision making is not a part of med or pa school, why is this?

Julia Jones's Interesting points:

  • A certificate of need is required for a regulatory review process of the state to build a hospital.
  • Evidence based design to impact experience
- Center for healthcare design
- designing for efficiency
- patient focused
- philanthropic
- "universal room"
- Flexible for future expansion
- Centers of Excellence
  • Most doctors not employed by the hospitals, and have poor handwriting!
  • self propelled beds
  • COW - Computer on Wheels
  • Abulatory = outpatient treatment
  • General Inpatient = diagnostic

For more clarification: What are we doing for Hughes Spaulding? What have they not planned yet?

DJ Feather, CHOA - Clinical Involvement in Hospital Design

DJ had very interesting insight into involving front line staff such as nurses and physicians when designing a hospital. Nurses know design issue and work arounds. Care Teams created include:

  • Clinical Care
  • Family Support
  • Bus. Ops
  • Staff Management

Innovation needs to take place when setting the budget, not when designing. Look at other hospitals Identify unique design elements and describe the goal - then prioritize them. Full sized mockups for testing by bedside. Documet all decisions.

Principles of design

  • Growth/future expansion
  • Improve/ creat adjacencies
  • Improve efficiencies

Programming - listing the space out Block Programming - block out budgeted money for the space

Strive for 70% bed capacity.

9/20/07

Many groups presented their ideas including ours. Dr. Lamb suggested we look at TeleMedicine to compare some of the technologies making their way out there already.

Suggestions for all:

  • Be cost and value concious!
  • Smaller targeted problem
  • Be more innovative
  • Stay away from entertainment
  • Use existing technologies in a new way, ex. Bluetooth
  • Push it to another level

9/25/07

Today the rest of the groups presented their ideas. There are many recurring themes, so we need broader problem statements that the solutions can fall under. We spent the end of the class coming up with specific problem statements that we are looking to solve.

Our group came up with 3:

  • Waiting room is not condusive to different users and uses
  • Unnecessary visits to the hospital for chronic care
  • Patients/Families feel a loss of control which causes stress and anxiety

This will put us on the right path of creating a specific solution. We will need to keep researching the problems in order to come up with some great solutions.

Our group will be visiting Scottish Rite on October 5th.
