What will the hospital of the future be?
The Department of Architecture, Construction Engineering and Built Environment and the Politecnico di Milano Foundation, which together lead the Joint Research Platform on Healthcare Infrastructures , are trying to answer this question.
This platform of excellence is aimed at companies and institutions in the health field to develop innovative projects that will lead to the creation of a 4.0 hospital.
Mario Cucinella Architects, Philips, Politecnica Ingegneria e Architettura, Eredi Rossini Domenico, Siemens SpA and Tecnicaer Engineering , Together with Politecnico, will develop a sustainable “user center” healthcare model, which puts the patient and not the hospital at the center.
says Stefano Capolongo, Professor of Hospital Design at Politecnico di Milano and Scientific Coordinator for this initiative.
In fact, it has been shown that user centered hospitals improve the satisfaction of patients and the healthcare personnel who work there, increasing productivity, reducing management costs, reducing the risk of falls and infections.
The new hospital will be designed "by developing, validating and testing design models for the different functional areas of the hospital (Operating and Critical Patient Area, Diagnostic Area, Emergency Area, Outpatients Area, Inpatients Area, General, Logistic and Technical Services Area) or the strategic characteristics (flexibility, resilience to major emergencies, sustainability) ".
says Andrea Sianesi, President of Fondazione Politecnico di Milano.
