Description

People between the ages of 18-34 and 51-69 make up the largest percentage of the population. But while the demographics in our country have changed dramatically in recent years, little has been done to modify hospitals as a result, especially in the areas we spend the most time: the patient room. The need for a change in this space is further compounded by the fact recent analysis shows up to 30% of space within a typical patient room goes unused or underutilized. Using peer-reviewed research, design strategy and feedback from top healthcare institutions, NBBJ created a new patient room design that caters specifically to the needs of young and mature patients, while making better use of space and easing financial concerns. Taking cues from the micro apartments made famous in Asia, NBBJ developed a design that completely transforms the patient room to better care for patients, their families and providers, with features including a home office, dining room table for six people, a double bed and physiotherapy space.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Outline the influx of new types of patients into the American healthcare system, including their unique needs and the primary reasons they seek treatment
  • Discuss how these changing patient demographics require a new approach to healthcare design that better integrates sensors, VR and projection mapping into the design process
  • Describe how healthcare architects are taking lessons learned from corporate workplaces for tech companies and beginning to apply insights into the design of healthcare spaces
  • Explain how these demographics and tools are leading to the creation of more effective healthcare environments, including patient rooms that promote socialization and rest
