PHOENIX, March 12, 2009- With both an exhibition and a presentation, SSOE had a significant presence at the American Society for Healthcare Engineering’s (ASHE) 2009 International Conference and Exhibition on Health Facility Planning, Design, and Construction (PDC) in Phoenix, Arizona. The show brought together thought leaders in healthcare engineering and architecture from around the world.
SSOE’s healthcare group presented, “Urban Legends of Healthcare Design,” which looked at several popular design strategies and the clinical motivations that lead to their use.
Citing specific case study examples,SSOE presented research evidence to support, or debunk the myths in popularized design intentions. Busting these myths, attendees learned the difference between design fact and design fiction, and just exactly where, when, and how design makes the critical difference. The audience was urged to closely look at design strategies – myth versus reality and the importance of evidence-based design as a critical tool for healthcare architects.
