15:45 Examine Off-Site Ambulatory Care Centers’ Trends & Innovations---revised abstract soon to come!
Due to the shift in delivery of care whereas healthcare systems have been strongly encouraged to increase patient care to off-site ambulatory care centers versus within their main campus’, Owners and designers need to know what’s possible on a logistical and design level---as urgent and emergency care services are channelled to off-campus ambulatory care centers.
For these new facilities; efficiency, connectivity, and interoperability must be top of mind to the overall Master Plan.
In this session, we will explore:
Design plans that maximize small spaces’ square footage
Creating transformable spaces for multi-purpose needs
Designing effective clinician’s mobile work stations---and maximize data connectivity and interoperability
Innovative off-site ambulatory care centers located in the U.S. and abroad--- and how these extraordinary designs might be applied to your projects
