Presentation Title: Intensive Care Unit Design – 25 years of winning trends
Event: European Healthcare Design Congress
Presentation Date: June 27, 2016
Event Location: Royal College of Physicians, London, UK
The goal of intensive care is to provide the highest-quality treatment in order to achieve the best outcome for critically ill patients. Research supporting the impact of the built environment has exerted a strong influence on multidisciplinary design teams as they seek solutions to maximize operational efficiency and create supportive healing environments for patients, families, and clinical staff.
The ICU is an ever-changing and rapidly advancing environment, with the integration of advanced informatics adding a new layer of complexity to design planning and operations. Future ICU designs will require planning for long-term flexibility by incorporating design decisions that accommodate changing care practices and information technology.
