How do you support caregivers and also care for the needs of the patients?

It’s a dynamic time to be designing healthcare spaces. There is valuable, fresh understanding of the value in creating healthy environments for patients and caregivers. Innovative product designs protect caregivers while giving patients appropriate support and freedom.

We understand the changes and challenges, and are ready to help you create the very best healthcare experience for patients, staff and care partners.

At Business Furniture, we feel creating a positive patient experience means optimizing a healthcare environment so it feels more like a home while supporting clinical care. Effective high-quality healthcare comes from user-centered insights in an environment that is conducive to healing for the patient, caregiver and the partner in care.

It’s about engaging more with patients and increasing the emphasis on stress-free spaces that are less cluttered, more relaxed and foster a sense of healing.

The Stakes are High

We all recognize that workloads are growing as budgets are shrinking. Technology advancements are increasing at a rapid rate, redefining how hospitals once operated. An aging patient population and growing acuity means more patients are sicker and patient stays are longer.

User-Centered, Evidence-based Design

At Business Furniture, we have a dedicated team that works with healthcare organizations providing innovative products and applications to create environments that are more conducive to healing than ever before.

We assist hospitals and healthcare facilities in creating spaces that incorporate the latest trends in evidenced based design for the patient, the caregiver and the partner in care.  Our holistic viewpoint solves needs like workflow, productivity and user control.

We are committed to making healthcare environments of all kinds better with user-centered design while solving for the specific obstacles, work-arounds and conflicts facing patients and caregivers in today’s healthcare environments.

One of the new products Steelcase Health launched this year is the Pocket cart.  The Pocket is amazingly quiet, easy to move and accommodates the latest technology with casters built like in-line skates and a magnetic surface that can accommodate scanners, computers and I-Pads.
As Fast Company describes it, “with the speedy arrival of electronic medical record-keeping, known as EMR, caregivers will need a mobile, personal workspace with Internet access as often as they need a stethoscope.”

There are many other ways we can help. Find out more today on how you can improve your healthcare environment to provide higher-quality care.
