Reimagining+ Racial Justice in Healthcare

August 10-11, 2020

In this virtual workshop, participants followed the human-centered design process to develop solutions to race-related challenges faced by clinicians, patients, and architects working in healthcare design. The enthusiasm was great, and a team of attendees will be moving forward to continue pushing one of the ideas to implementation for twelve months after the workshop.

Reimagining the ICU

September 19-20, 2019

Through careful human-centered design processes, workshop groups came up with innovative solutions to a variety of issues facing hospital staff in Intensive Care Units (ICUs). One such solution was the incorporation of a customizable noise cancellation system within rooms to drown sounds of the facility that can be controlled by various parties, including staff, the patient, and family.

Reimagining Childbirth Facilities

April 31-May 1, 2018

Clinicians representing various regions and facility types identified key design issues that may impede delivery of care in obstetric settings. In small groups, attendees discussed desired birthing process outcomes, considered clinician challenges, and evaluated improvements to both design and process that have the potential to reduce negative patient outcomes and points of pain for staff. Each small group prototyped solutions and reviewed the FGI Guidelines for opportunities to improve, clarify, and elaborate on design guidance for childbirth facilities. 

Reimagining the ED

September 18-19, 2017

This workshop focused on providing solutions to three key issues: improving arrival and front-end operations, reducing patient length of stay, and improving the experience of behavioral health patients. One such solution developed by participants using the human-centered design process was a registration kiosk for low acuity patients (ESI level 3, 4, or 5)
