Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Implementing solutions for optimal space design can boost team performance, efficiency, engagement and satisfaction, as well as improve patient satisfaction and outcomes. As time available for examinations and consultations continue to shrink, the environment where patient encounters occur is pivotal to physician satisfaction and patient satisfaction and engagement. Practices can incorporate proven design solutions to enhance team and patient interactions, which can boost team performance, efficiency, engagement and satisfaction, as well as improve patient satisfaction and outcomes. In this module, physicians will learn how to take simple and cost-effective steps to improve their practice design and consider solutions to improve team satisfaction, workflow efficiency and patients’ safety, health, satisfaction, comprehension and adherence.
