Clinician involvement is essential to the success of any healthcare design project centered around patient care delivery. Practicing physicians can contribute valuable clinical knowledge to healthcare design projects to ensure the final product meets desired patient care goals.
There are many challenges in obtaining optimal physician engagement in longitudinal design projects, including time constraints, differing priorities, competing interests, insufficient knowledge of design and development process and understanding the value of their contribution.
Because many challenges exist to optimizing physician participation in the process, balancing the perspectives of both the practicing clinician and the healthcare administrator and healthcare consultants are paramount in creating successful healing environments.
