It should be no surprise that everyone agrees that uncertainty is one of the biggest challenges facing the healthcare industry today. Healthcare in the US is currently undergoing the most extreme transformational paradigm shift in over a century. How can we better understand long-term trends facing healthcare leaders?
Angela Watson joins Hamilton Espinoza of DPR Construction and Steve Brigham of the University of Arizona Health Network to discuss the results and lessons to be learned from DPR’s recent survey of healthcare leaders, designers, and consultants. While the healthcare industry is constantly tasked with change and doing more for less, there is an underlying optimism in the new focus on wellness, integration and community embeddedness.
