Effects of Healthcare Environmental Design on Medical Outcomes

Jan 01, 2001

The goal of DCHP 2000 is to create a multidisciplinary scientific forum for presenting research and new ideas toward improving the quality of hospital design and care. A premise motivating the conference is that the quality of the design of physical environments can affect patient medical outcomes and care quality. An important impetus for the growing international awareness of healthcare facility design has been mounting scientific evidence that certain environmental design strategies can promote improved outcomes whereas other approaches can worsen patient health.
