Managing costs by designing care-centred workplaces

In times of tight budgets and continuous cost reductions, how can a hospital manage to both modernise sustainably and remain state of the art?
In today's hospital setting, managing cost of care is of major importance. In nearly all countries of the world, costs have increased, and the trend is still ongoing. Hospital Management has the need to focus more on efficiency and future proof concepts. Also, factors like reputation and staff satisfaction are coming up due to increased competition between hospitals.


Improving financial outcome by designing optimal care-centred workplaces

Workplace design has more than merely decorative purposes. In general, it aims to use evidence based design principles to improve clinical outcomes, economic performance and productivity, as well as client and staff satisfaction. From a strictly financial point of view, studies have shown that a poorly designed environment in a hospital setting can have serious consequences, such as staff dissatisfaction, or also worsening a patient’s condition, which are both associated with increased costs for the hospital.


Care-centred Design in Hospitals

Why should workplace design matter for hospitals? Dr. Josep Maria Nicolás from Barcelona hospital presents his concept of a care centred and cost efficient ICU. He chose to focus on infection prevention, patient privacy and cutting edge technology.
