2018 Medical Design Forum: Design Strategies for Responsive Care

This year’s Medical Design Forum includes two full days of in-depth presentations, conversations and case studies focused on design strategies for responsive care. How can design professionals partner with healthcare providers and caregivers to support a more resilient healthcare system? This two-day forum will explore approaches to integrated care for behavioral health, provider initiatives for community wellness, and various research, tools and strategies currently informing healthcare design. Sessions will combine the expertise of architects, engineers, owners, providers and caregivers.
