Video: Designing healthcare facilities to address the “human experience”

by Anne Zieger on October 25, 2010

In years gone by, most healthcare facilities were designed to be functional and sturdy, but not exactly user-friendly.  At long last, however, things are changing. Industrial designers focusing on healthcare are beginning to look more closely at how patients use what they build, and in some cases, actually getting patients and physicians involved in the design process.  

That, at least, is what industrial design firm Worrell Design has begun to do when it works with provider organization. While the following film is a commercial of sorts — it obviously pitches Worrell as a thought leader — it’s still worth a look. Getting doctors and patient health leaders directly involved in facilities design isn’t just smart, it’s critical. — Anne Zieger
