This book will provide designers with everything they need to know to understand these shifting factors and address them through the design of the built clinic environment. It covers the practical elements of clinic design--from front entry and waiting area to exam room--for clinics of all types, from traditional community clinics to newer clinic models that might be located adjacent to a hospital, in a commercial storefront, or within a retail pharmacy or big box store. Specific design strategies and examples of existing projects will show how each of these spaces can be designed to optimize patient experience. Innovations such as lean design, design for flexibility, and prototyping spaces with mock-ups will be covered within the clinic setting.
