N.Y. facility's technology designed to decrease patient stress

May 6, 2019

NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital's newest ambulatory care center, The David H. Koch Center, was designed with technology to cut patient stress and wait times, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.

The design team looked for ways to create a calming experience. For instance, patients can bypass a traditional check-in by completing paperwork before their visit via the NYP mobile app or online.

The app also gives instructions about the visit and step-by-step directions to exam prep and recovery rooms.
