Join Esperanza Harper, EDAC, Six Sigma Greenbelt and Alice Gittler, EDAC, LEED Green Associate for an interactive session titled “Connect the DOTT®s: Informing Patient-Centered Design with Design Research” October 31 at the 2016 Planetree International Conference on Patient-Centered Care in Chicago, IL.
In its 24th year, the longest running conference on patient–centered care provides access to some of the best learning opportunities in the healthcare industry today.
Meet DOTT®; a web-app developed to map and measure the relationships between patients, care givers and the environments of care in which they interact. Behavioral mapping and time and motion studies are an essential part of the design researcher or planner’s toolkit, and DOTT® is a tool to collect, quantify, and analyze how features of the built environment are impacting patient experience, how and if spaces are utilized, uncover workflow patterns, and show where patient-provider interaction is more likely to take place, among other things.
How is the design of your hospital or clinic affecting patient experience? Let DOTT® reveal data-backed insights to your built environment.
With these metrics and analyses in hand, we can uncover insights that provide a basis for design innovation and translate into value-added solutions. In this session, you will learn about our approach to capturing meaningful data in healthcare settings using DOTT® as we share case studies, key findings from DOTT® -informed design research in outpatient and inpatient settings, and examples of the innovations they inspired.
