Designing for team-based healthcare

Designing for team-based healthcare means including areas that feature collaborative space with ample natural light and provide separation from the exam areas, according to an article on the Healthcare Construction + Operations website.

To support operational flow, the clinical pod concept is often used. The clinical area is broken into pods that support a given number of exam rooms. 

The care team in each pod is organized so the members have direct line of sight to all exam rooms. 

Care team stations are organized to facilitate collaboration by providing flexible meeting space. 

The pods are connected by an “off-stage” corridor that supports staff circulation, the article said.
