Rethinking the Clinic: Optimizing the Outpatient Standard

The Outpatient Clinic IF team has hit the ground running, excited to pioneer into the next frontiers of outpatient clinic design.  Picking up the baton from Cadre’s research on Clinic 20xx, the team is honing in on key targets to improve both organizational and cultural aspects of the outpatient clinic.  Does the layout of a clinic impact utilization?  Can modularity and standardization influence capacity of load leveling and efficiency?  How can we better design staff workspaces to improve workflow and culture?  Over the course of the next year we hope to answer these questions and illustrate solutions on what tomorrow’s optimized clinic might look like.
