Customer experience is becoming a focus for many health care providers as they strive to show their commitment to patient comfort, safety, and high-quality medical care. As a result, most medical practice administrators/professionals are now redesigning their facilities to create more inviting, contemporary and functional spaces that fully support the needs of patients and staff. Here are some of the top design trends.
Design Around Modern Technology
Just like any other office, a medical clinic/facility will function better when designed with the aim of increasing efficiency. Using energy-efficient solutions such as insulated concrete wall systems, LED lighting and other eco-friendly materials makes a significant impact. Further, by taking advantage of medical technology with the use of digital kiosks, patients can check themselves in or out as well as make follow-up appointments to streamline the check-in experience.
Create Friendly and Adaptable Spaces
To increase the patient’s comfort in the waiting area, consider implementing improvements such as modern décor, comfortable furniture, free Wi-Fi, properly spaced charging stations with USB ports or even play areas to keep kids occupied. Creating such warm and welcoming environments is a great way of eliciting an atmosphere that showcases your practice’s level of care.
By incorporating natural elements like small gardens, large windows to let in natural light, fish tanks or great landscaping, you can create an environment that is relaxing for a place that’s usually filled with anxiety.
Have Larger Exam Rooms
Larger exam rooms are far more efficient in improving group therapy sessions, especially when handling patients who suffer from chronic diseases. A separate, smaller exam room can be set up to provide personal care to individual patients.
Creating the perfect office space that gives your patients a more positive experience while adding greater function is paramount to its success.
