Abstract

Research supporting the impact of the built environment, while still in its infancy, has exerted strong influence on design teams as they seek solutions to maximize operational efficiency, address the reduction of errors, and create environments that are supportive for patients, families, and staff. This article will explore various solutions to addressing the most impactful issues from each perspective and will compare solutions against measures of effectiveness.
