Searching for Goldilocks: Is There a Right Size Hospital?

November 12, 3:00–4:00 pm EST

Over the past few years, health systems have internally debated and executed projects that expand existing hospital campuses or plant new ones to capture market share and expand their brand presence. However, considerable debate remains as to the threshold of adding to an existing campus or developing a smaller additional site. Is there a “right size” for a hospital?

In this session, health system leaders share the business elements they use to determine the calculus. Can they be consistently applied? What is the range of dynamics that may affect those decisions?

Translating Design into Data: How Spatial Metrics Make for a Better Patient Experience

November 12, 4:30–5:30 pm EST

Although the healthcare industry is overflowing with data, the built environment often plays a smaller role in data-driven decision making because of the lack of standardized and comprehensive spatial datasets. By translating floor plans into data that capture qualitative architectural characteristics like privacy, travel distances, and views, this method gives the built environment a bigger voice in decision making that relates design to healthcare performance.

In this session, learn how the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute applied an automated spatial analysis to support its data-driven approach to improving design standards, prioritizing capital projects, and enhancing patient satisfaction.
