How Data Elevates Healthcare Space Design (Pt. 1)
On this episode of Champions of Care, a Champion Chair podcast and your leading source for industry-leading insights and thought leadership about medical seating and more, BSA LifeStructures’ Jen Worley and Karen Tobin joined host Daniel Litwin to outline how access to more informative and actionable data has elevated the way healthcare design promotes healing, learning and discovery.
BSA LifeStructures focuses on integrating data into the design process, helping designers craft progressive and sustainable structures that help designers achieve those core goals.
“Our mission has always been to partner with our clients and be a national leader in healing, learning and discovery, with the ultimate goal to improve lives,” Worley said. “We’re really excited about continuing that mission and being a part of this generation going forward.”
In today’s world, that means helping designers navigate the ever-growing world of technological innovation and the overwhelming amount of data those innovations produce to craft the right space for the right purpose.
To identify the relevant metrics per project, BSA LifeStructures looks to each market, in this case healthcare, to create a set of metrics that matter, or central metrics that can guide design. Then, for each project, more specific metrics can be selected in additional sessions.
In the realm of treatment spaces for oncology, biologics, and other infusion treatments, Worley and Tobin said there are some “givens” for these environments, such as infection control, ease of cleaning, and more. From there, specific environments and goals can help inform the specification of all of the medical seating.
