Diagonal - Designing Servicescapes for Optimal Healthcare Experiences

6,975

Published on

Healthcare environments are often designed with the needs of the working staff in mind. The experience of patients is often left as an afterthought and not fully integrated in the design process. When asked to design a spatial concept for a chain of laboratories, Diagonal chose to combine service design methods with interior architecture and to place the experience of their customers and staff at the center stage. The result presents a refreshing take on healthcare without diminishing the trust in the expertise of the staff.

  25. 25. Design Drivers FUNCTIONALITY The solutions are based on an understanding of laboratory workers and what makes their work as fluent as possible. The spatial layout guides staff and visitors through it. CLARITY Each step has been assigned a simple and understandable role. The visitor understands what they are supposed to do and how to prepare for the next one. 25 AMBIENCE The space is a pleasant environment that calms the visitors down. During the sample taking visitors can avoid seeing laboratory equipment and watch from the window or at a picture. Art from schools etc. can be placed at a gallery wall.

  32. 32. Patients say In comparison to the old one these are much calmer and more private with clean nice walls around. It's a nice feeling. Small, but I wouldn't need any bigger. The are much more comfortable and you don't get as anxious. Nice that it's private. Best was the woman who took the sample like a pro. 32 Copyright Diagonal Mental Structure Oy. All rights reserved.
  33. 33. Staff say These are positively different. Very calm. You have space for your tools. At times I need to get something from the storage. That's good on the other hand that you have to move a bit at times. It's efficient, fresh and clean. Positive, you have all you need and you can be private. The rooms are a bit small, but they work well. They look nice and bring a warm feeling. 33 Copyright Diagonal Mental Structure Oy. All rights reserved.

Patients are an underutilized resource in healthcare. What are they expecting from laboratory services? How do they want to be involved in the management of their health? 36 Copyright Diagonal Mental Structure Oy. All rights reserved.
