The Value of Patient-Centered Design in Hospitals

July 4, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


When speaking of design in hospitals, most people think about interior design, but this evening, we like to speak about the design of services, processes and the whole experience of being in a hospital.

There are not many touch points in which processes are more cost-driven and over-regulated as in hospitals. On the other side, there are also not many touch points in the healthcare ecosystem which are more connected to fear, uncertainty and other strong emotions for the patients and their relatives.

Together we will learn about patient-centered design methods for designing hospital processes and services. By applying these, hospitals can get more efficient and pleasant for patients, relatives as well as healthcare professionals.
