VisionDevelop a virtual model creation process to interactively aid in the design, build, and realization phase of a hospital construction process.
Hospital Design & Build ProcessDesign Phase: Disconnect between designers and end-users (care-givers).Build Phase: Little to no way-finding training provided before move-in. Lack of process planning.Occupancy Phase: Lack of patient interaction outside of hospital. Little to no way-finding training provided before visit.
Vision throughout design & build processHospital Design & Build Process ProgressVirtual Model CompletionAid in optimizing design before its built.Maximize way-finding transition.Maximize Process EfficienciesPromote interaction between patients, nurses, etc.Remotely educate on way-findingAdvertise.
1.Design PhasePrincipleTo increase effectiveness with designing better workplaces by integrating verbal and behavioral feedbacks from nurses.
Evidence28.9% of nursing staff time was spent walking (Burgio et al. 1990)the impact of unit layout on the amount of time spent walking (Shepley 2002; Shepley and Davies 2003; Sturdavant 1960;)
1. Design phase
SolutionNurses are randomly assigned to different units.They are asked to explore the unit and perform several medical tasks.The distances and time used, and their verbal feedbacks are collected.
Unit AUnit B
2. Build PhasePrincipleMaximize way-finding transition. Improve process efficiencies and reduce errors.
EvidencePeople with virtual environment training outperform people without trainingtimes to perform route tasks left-right directional judgmentsHunt, M. E. (1984), Foreman, N., et al, (2005)
2. Build PhaseSolutionNurses will be trained to perform medical tasks with the optimized routes before they move into new building. Different nurses may have different tasks/ destinations.
A nurse in ICU will be trained to locate key locations ofMedication roomSupport roomEquipmentsCertain people etc.
3. Occupancy PhasePrincipleProvide transparency of the environment to patients and visitors.SolutionUsers can use the virtual environment to know how to find key locations in the hospital.
