Focus: Facility Design

Centralized team areas need to be designed for efficiency and collaboration

March 23, 2017

To support a transition to a patient-focused model of care, the design of a central care team space must support efficiency and collaboration, according to an article on the Medical Construction & Design website.
 
This space should include room for physicians, medical assistants and nursing staff, as well as social workers and dieticians.
 
Patient privacy concerns can be resolved with clear glass panels, lower soffits and applied acoustic treatments, the article said.
 
The design should allow for staff interaction while protecting patient privacy by containing sound within the work unit, while still allowing team members to interact with patients.
