Adapt your healthcare facilities to sustain care team engagement and patient safety

COVID-19 fundamentally changed our view of healthcare preparedness. Almost overnight, healthcare organizations needed to radically increase their ability to care for infectious, high-risk patients. The dangers to patients, care providers, loved ones, and everyone else were significant. Today’s healthcare environment requires innovative, adaptable, long-term facility solutions.

To understand how COVID-19 has impacted healthcare providers, and their strategies moving forward, we surveyed over 100 professionals at this year’s ASHE PDC conference (American Society for Health Care Engineering’s Planning and Design Conference).

Find out if your care model is at risk, and where peers are planning to focus their investment to sustain care team engagement and patient safety.
