Seeing in 3P: An Immersive Workshop

Warning: This highly interactive workshop may disrupt your usual design process. The nature of the experience may result in the following symptoms:

• Sudden ability to make decisions
• Increased user satisfaction
• Reduction in project timelines
• Elimination of late design changes

3P (Production, Preparation, Process) workshops are an effective method for bringing together the multi-disciplinary stakeholders of a healthcare design project. Through collaborative lean exercises that focus on process and function, the events help eliminate waste, create durable decisions and ultimately reduce the project design schedule. While 3Ps are typically multi-day events, this workshop will provide an intensive environment for all participants to experience the primary components of a 3P in a condensed timeframe.

Attendees will bring their unique perspectives to work together to create a conceptual design. As a follow-up, facilitators will share a report of workshop results with all attendees.

Facility Tour One: Partners Healthcare Headquarters

Since its founding in 1994, Partners HealthCare employees have never literally worked together. Until now. The new Assembly Row complex in Somerville opened for employees in June 2016.

In total, the move involves 4,500 Partners HealthCare employees that serve umbrella functions for the Partners system – finance, human resources, information systems, government affairs, communications, legal, and others. Previously, these employees were scattered in 15 locations around the Boston metro area. Space on the 11th floor of the Prudential Center will remain as a central meeting place and will continue to serve as the system’s official headquarters.

Combining all staff in a single-campus setting offers three benefits: uniting the Partners culture, improving efficiency, and reducing costs.

“Bringing people together under one roof will break down silos to create a more unified culture, as well as providing many more opportunities for inter-departmental collaboration,” said Peter Markell, executive vice president of Administration & Finance, CFO and Treasurer and a member of the Executive Leadership Team that heads up the Assembly Row project. “Departments and areas who work closely together or who have shared aspects of large projects will be located adjacent to one another in the new space.” For example, Partners eCare staff will be located near IS staff since their work is so interdependent.

An emphasis on shared resources – everything from printers to office supplies to “huddle rooms” for meetings – will improve efficiency and effectiveness while streamlining processes. And reducing the costs associated with operating multiple sites is expected to save more than $10 million in annual office lease costs.

While the bulk of the space at Assembly Row is for Partners HealthCare staff, the building contains a variety of spaces available to employees from throughout the system. On the main floor adjacent to the lobby, a flexible, multi-purpose Assembly Room for up to 600 people can be arranged into several configurations, such as a large lecture/presentation setup or a banquet layout for hosting a seated event. Like a hotel ballroom, the space can be divided into three smaller configurations.

A 13-room training facility is on the second floor. Eleven of the training rooms are dedicated to computer training and vary in size to accommodate 12-34 people. The other rooms can be reserved for traditional training.

Facility Tour Two: Highlights of the Longwood Medical Area - A Walking Tour

Welcome to the Longwood Medical area, an approximately 9 city block area of Boston housing one of the most dense concentrations of healthcare related activity in the country.  It includes four teaching hospitals, Harvard Medical School, research centers, medicine-related colleges and biomedical firms – many connected by bridges and tunnels.  Longwood hospitals see about 2.6 million patient visits and the various institutions bring in about $1 billion in NIH grants each year.

 

Come walk with architects who have served these institutions for decades and are well-versed in the history of the facilities.  We will stroll from one side of Longwood to the other, stopping for short tours of recently completed projects, representing a range of sizes and functions.  Amongst our potential stops are: Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s latest building addition, the Hale building, a translational medicine building with a musculoskeletal and neuroscience focus – and the terminus to the infamous Brigham “Pike;” Boston Children’s Hospital; and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Yawkey building.  Architects and facility representatives will lead us through recent projects, sharing facility interventions and innovations and stories of building in this dense urban fabric.

 

So bring your fitbit, and come see what’s new in this unique concentration of world-class academic medical centers and hospitals!

 

Tour is limited to 40 participants.

Design in Pediatric Care Facilities

NOAH ROOM 1

Integrated Art and Architecture Creates a Wellness Destination for Children

Beverly Hayden-Pugh, Julie Head, Hsiao-lin Hu, Annette Ridenour

With the premise of building a health destination for the children of Kern County California Valley Children’s Hospital hired SmithGroup and Aesthetics Inc. to design a pediatric clinic with a coordinated physical environment to mitigate children’s fear of going to the doctor. The resultant coordinated design is a uniquely branded pediatric healthcare facility activated and accented with physical features and art that express the ideals and integrity of the Owner’s organization.

Art and Healing: An Evaluation of an Art Program in a Children's Hospital

Lynn Aguilera, Jill Sullivan

Art is an important component to the design of a healing environment in any hospital but art as an instrument for healing is even more crucial to consider when children are involved. This case study focuses on the evaluation of public artwork in the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford's new main building 18 months after opening. The presenters will share the evaluation results and discuss lessons learned from the planning design procurement cataloging and installation of the artwork. The presenters will also explain how art was used in staff training as a way finding tool and as a way to encourage engagement in the new building.

Research in Arts in Health

Infusion Dance - Creating Bedside Communities

Judith Sachs

An infusion pod is a cloister of separated individuals: the patient (fatigued, scared, in pain,) the care-partner (fatigued, protective, bored), the nurses and staff (executing a difficult job where precision is everything). To unite these individuals into one community, and to improve their individual and collective experience at a difficult time. we started an infusion dance project at Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute. In this interactive workshop, performed to a wide variety of music, we will simulate what happens in bedside and cubicle settings--seated, lying down, and standing with the pole.

 

Effects of Live Art on Patients and Staff in an Outpatient Chemotherapy Treatment Environment

The aim of the study was to explore the effects of a visual artist on patients and nursing staff in an outpatient chemotherapy treatment environment.

 

Existing Research in Arts in Health: How to Turn an Idea into a Research Project

Heather Stuckey

In this presentation, I will discuss how research does not limit your creativity as an artist, an art therapist, teacher, or any arts-based facilitator. It fact, it can enhance it by helping you think about what you are really trying to accomplish and why you are running a program. I will review 3 common types of research: (1) Quantitative, (2) Qualitative, (3) Mixed Methods. After that description, I will walk through several designs of interventions, reviewing basic principles of research and what we need to know: (1) Our research question or hypothesis (what we are trying to do); (2) Our population (the people who will receive the intervention); (3) The design of how we are going to do this (here, collaboration with researchers can help); and (4) The outcomes (what we hope changes). By participating in this, you will have the chance to see the basic principles of research in action and have the opportunity to apply it to your own arts program or project.

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.

 

CALLING ALL HEALTHCARE ARCHITECTS, DESIGNERS, ADMINSTRATORS...

 

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.

 

FEEDBACK FROM PRIOR WORKSHOP ATTENDEES...

• “Having clinicians and designers, architects, and planners all in the same room rapidly accelerates the problem solving and solution design process.” Benjamin Bassin, MD, Director of Clinical Operations, Emergency Critical Care Center (EC3); Clinical Assistant Professor, University of Michigan Hospital and Health System

• “The workshop was further validation of the value of structured time invested in direct collaboration between clinicians, other multidisciplinary team members, and designers.” - Deswood Etsitty, Facilities Planner, Indian Health Service

• “This was a refreshing event that I could not stop talking about; I look forward (to) participating in similar workshops in the future.” - Josh Stewart, AIA, ACHA - Healthcare Planning Leader/Associate Principal, TMPartners, PLLC

An Intuitive Design Workshop

Gregory Splinter, a Wisconsin-based architect and Generative Space Task Force (GSTF) member, will present a workshop during the annual Healthcare Facilities Symposium + Expo, in Boston, MA, on Thursday afternoon, September 19 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.  Titled ‘An Intuitive Design Workshop’, it is a two-hour long program conducted in partnership with the Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo.  

Each participant will have the opportunity to access their deep inner wisdom by creating their own intuitive drawing, and interpret their drawing, through an immersive experience facilitated by Gregory.

While facilitating a previous workshop, Gregory created his own, personal, intuitive design drawing – which he describes as:

                ‘The magic for me was, with the participants' help, discerning and interpreting this drawing as being a musical instrument.  The participants helped me connect the idea that my best service to others, as the workshop facilitator, was to be an ‘instrument!’ That meant I wasn't the music.  I wasn't the musician. I was, in the best possible sense, the instrument which others played to make their own special music. I was ‘instrumental’ for others to express their best possible selves, to beautifully connect with their own reality, in their own expressive fashion.’

 

There is no charge to attend this workshop.  It is open to all HFSE attendees, and members of the professional Boston-area community.  It is necessary to register here.

The participation is limited, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Light refreshments will be available and all workshop supplies will be provided.  Please plan to arrive by 1:15 pm, for a prompt 1:30 pm start. 

The location will be announced in late August.
