What’s different about healthcare in 2021? An historic volume of patients. Overworked staff who must collaborate while social distancing. Patients who must navigate novel checkpoint procedures. Newer technologies, such as telehealth. More rigorous cleaning and hygiene standards.
The pandemic has transformed everything about healthcare. Accordingly, design must be transformed as well.
As we look ahead, design leaders must recognize the way that healthcare has recently evolved. Each touchpoint within a healthcare facility should be viewed through a new design lens.
Healthcare design had already been trending to evoke comfort and warmth. The past year has added “safety” to the trending mix. Furniture that is thoughtfully designed to accommodate the current considerations of the pandemic era can improve the experience for both patients and staff.
