Reimagining Critical Care

Reimagining Critical Care” – the third “reimagining” workshop for clinicians and designers - is presented by the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), the Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI), Ariadne Labs and Catalysis on September 19th and 20th in Boston, MA. Leading clinicians and designers will assemble to “reimagine” critical care, improving patient outcomes and operations. Organized by Mazzetti’s Sextant Foundation, this two-day workshop will convene on the final day of the Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo (HFSE) at the Hynes Convention Center.


***Practicing clinicians can submit for free entry here***


Participating architects will receive 14 AIA HSW LUs. Firms that send senior staff members can send accompanying junior staff members at a reduced rate. Participants will learn through continuous rich dialogue with colleagues while also making a significant contribution to the future of critical care design.


The event is designed to be the definitive assembly on shaping this topic and will bring together leading clinicians and representatives from healthcare focused architecture, engineering, and other design firms from around the country. We will use process thinking and human-centered design inspired techniques to reimagine critical care spaces and how they are designed. Finally, we’ll determine pathways to achieve workshop discoveries and identify potential barriers to implementation. Suggestions will be submitted to FGI’s guideline revision process to potentially inform future fundamental Guidelines requirements and “Beyond Fundamentals” ideas and insights.
