I am excited about working with everyone in the class and the opportunity to collaborate with different disciplines.

8/24

It was a great opportunity to hear Julia Jones speak today. Her experience and insight into hospital design exposed me to many design elements I would like to further research and incorporate into our project. I am especially interested in "room messaging" and the impact of information on the patient/family experience, their outcome, and their level of understanding/education. Other key take-aways from her presentation are; the integration of efficiency, philanthropy, and patient focus into design, and how consideration of payer/service mix is an essential criterion for successful design.
