If you've been keeping up with the news, you probably heard in the last week that Prince William left the Royal Air Force, a Van Gogh that everybody thought was fake turned out to be real, and healthcare inflation in the U.S. has slowed to a 50-year record low.
What about healthcare design?
Here's a digest of some of the things I posted this week:
- Design for the next healthcare: Taking a page from the banking industry's playbook. Latest whitepaper from BSA.
- Technology: Smart watches are here. mHealth, according to healthcare management expert Edmond Banayan is morphing into Smart mHealth.
- Hospital safety: My last blog post on what we can learn from cars.
- Sustainable hospital design: Is it too costly? No, say experts at Perkins+Will, who recently completed a study.
- Health effects of street scale elements: Interesting study by University of Houston researchers on the effects of the street scape on health.
- Assisted living: Post by Long Term Living's Senior Editor Lois Bowers that pushes back on the PBS documentary, "Living and Dying in Assisted Living" that aired in July.
- Disruption in healthcare: Post by Forbes Contributor Dan Munro that claims our healthcare system isn't broken and real change will be hard to please as long as the "whales" are having fun.
