Planning a New Hospital or Clinic? First, Design How it Cares

What will the hospital of the future look like? How will it simplify care processes? How will it fit within the broader system of care? How will it further population health? How will you plan for changing care models and uncertain demand? What if the hospital of the future is designed for both patients and caregivers?
