PATIENT ROOM 2020

A collaborative project to design a next generation inpatient health experience.

OVERVIEW

What would a patient room look like if the architecture, products, technology, and medical processes were all designed in unison? With support from the Department of Defense, NXT partnered with Clemson University’s Healthcare + Architecture Graduate Program to begin answering this question. The end result was a conceptual proposal that demonstrated how the integration of these key components could streamline the delivery of care, improve patient outcomes and redefine the medical experience in the 21st Century. In 2010, Patient Room 2020 won a national design award from the Center for Health Design affirming that experts recognized the potential of such a design to create a new medical experience.
