How to Improve Patient Outcomes in Healthcare Now
Environments play a huge role in patient satisfaction and well-being. More and more research indicates changes to the interior design of healthcare facilities can have significant impacts for patients, visitors and staff.
Incorporating artwork that is backed by the principles of evidence-based design is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to immediately change a healthcare setting.
In the video below, Kurt talks about the importance of photographing native landscapes and indigenous imagery as a tool for improving patient outcomes. He explains why using local imagery for healthcare facilities and hospitals works and gives you a glimpse of a few installations that demonstrate this practice.
