TOPIC DESCRIPTION:
CAN THE PLACES WHERE HEALTHCARE HAPPENS IMPROVE OUR EXPERIENCE AND LEAD TO BETTER HEALTH? 
The experience of healthcare is rapidly evolving. 60 percent of the U.S. population fails to meet baseline metrics of good health. Worldwide, 1 in 3 patients think health providers do not spend enough time on their care. And among the advanced economies of the world, the U.S. spends the most on healthcare – $2.9 trillion annually – but ranks lowest in terms of health outcomes. No one is satisfied with this equation. It’s time for change. 

Steelcase Health has gathered insights from 23 studies, 52 healthcare facilities and 15,280 hours of observation conducted over more than 10 years. We have learned that today’s healthcare journey needs to be an integrated one, facilitating connections between patients, families and clinicians. 

In this course, you will explore the key issues impacting healthcare today and learn the ways that space can help. We will examine insights on space planning in application across five common healthcare settings – each an opportunity to improve connection, empathy and well being. 

How will you lead positive change in healthcare? Join this conversation to understand how space can be part of your solution.
