Group health care visits offer consistent support and engagement for patients managing chronic conditions. In addition, they support providers’ goals by encouraging care plan compliance and collaboration, improving throughput and facilitating patient education. This session will enable participants to engage in a design charrette to develop new solutions in the built environment to empower and expand group care. These solutions will be used to create a mock up of the ideal group care clinic, which will be the subject of the Healthcare Design 2020 Patient Experience Simulation Lab.

“Design Thinking” is a growing trend among businesses and healthcare organizations as they seek to imagine new solutions for challenges in the workplace. More than ever, healthcare stakeholders are interested in learning the design process and employing it as an innovation tool. This session describes strategies that healthcare design professionals can use to fulfill this growing need, with solutions that may transform healthcare operations, and the built environment.


The Institute for Patient-Centered Design, Inc. was founded by Patients and Design Professionals with the purpose of giving patients a voice in the development of the healing environment.  Healthcare providers, medical staff, and design teams spend countless hours defining the requirements of a healthcare facility.  Although these are key individuals to develop a successful project, the end users - patients - are often excluded from this process.


The Institute strives to improve the environment of care by addressing the needs of patients through design. Our mission is to contribute to the quality of healthcare delivery through patient-centered design advocacy, education and research.
