The construction of a hospital in itself is not an easy project. It is important to take into account a huge number of various factors – from the types of equipment used to ensuring complete fire safety and the required number of parking spaces.
Design dialogues is a kind of organizational framework that uses a collaborative design approach, the basic concept is to use design methodology and test scenarios and models for full integration into the healthcare sector.
It is a multi-level process of working with the identification and assessment of needs and the parallel development of solutions.
Decisive moments in the design of medical institutions are taken in the early stages of the design process. The initial phase of the project can be described as conceptual, in which stakeholders meet to discuss ideas and requirements for the use of spatial solutions and functions.
This phase also makes it possible to carefully analyse the interaction of medical processes and the objects themselves. This, in turn, contributes to change.
Thus, the ideas of innovative models for patient care are integrated into the process of designing the facility. The needs of clients, as well as the strategic plan for health care, should be clearly defined and properly articulated at this stage to be able to support the effective process of designing new or renovating existing health care facilities.
In addition, involving top hospital consulting firms in India in the design process is important to integrate knowledge about the treatment process into the project and, where possible, patients and their families should also be involved in the process as end users.
The initial phase has the greatest impact on the project and the end result, as well as on the organization’s ability to respond to new challenges to influence future clinical outcomes.
To maintain and implement a high level of integration and innovation requires a conscious approach to design, where requirements for health facilities and spatial solutions are developed in parallel with the governmental or local vision of the organization of the health sector.
Why are hospitals not using trends?
The hospital of the future can be profitable with technological innovations such as augmented reality glasses, walls on which images are projected, 3D printers, cognitive computers, telemedicine or medical robots that can make operations, maintenance and care less expensive and more efficient.
Portable radiology devices will communicate wirelessly with other devices. Thanks to machine learning – that is, programs that learn to solve problems in the process – you can easily organize logistics, reduce the waiting time for an appointment or operation, which will lead to an improved quality of life.
Does the patient need to be involved in designing the clinic of the future?
Many clinics are built without the opinion of people who are consumers of medical services and without the opinion of those who are in the institution 24/7: neither medical professionals nor patients are involved in planning their space. Their needs should be incorporated into the design of the clinic.
We suggest you to consult hospital designers & planners of Astron Healthcare as they offer professional design of dental clinics, medical centres and sanatorium-type medical institutions (including for children) and guarantee high-quality work performed and accurate adherence to the terms specified in the contract.
