Spatial Analysis: We Analyze Clinical Spaces and Care Processes
Many characteristics of space, such as visibility, functional paths, and spatial complexity, impact care delivery and patient experience. We use a range of tools to identify, analyze, and model current and proposed environments. These tools provide snapshots of current or future systems to predict outcomes and performance using validated research methods. Software for performing space syntax analysis, such as Depthmap, are used to measure visual and physical access within existing and proposed health care facilities.
We have used spatial analysis in several of our projects, including Design for Mild Cognitive Impairment, Teamwork in Primary Care, and Infection Prevention and Safety.
