What We Do: We Improve Healthcare Spaces

At SimTigrate, we use evidence-based design in collaboration with partners to provide guidelines for best practices surrounding a variety of healthcare design problems. Our approach involves evaluating existing research, conducting our own research, testing proposed solutions in simulated medical environments, and translating the solutions for broad applications. We develop tools, data sets, and evidence that influence building design, health information technology, and healthcare products.

Working with architects, engineers, medical personnel, and others, we help find ideas for spaces and environments that are efficient, safe, healthy, and collaborative. Our current research is focused on design for mild cognitive impairment, infection prevention and safety, lighting in healthcare spaces, and teamwork in primary care.

We Make Spaces ...

... Easier to Navigate

We are studying the built environment and lighting for patients with mild cognitive impairment.

... Safer for Providers

The built environment can have a significant impact on safety and infection prevention.

... More Comfortable

We are studying sleep and other impacts of light on patients.

... More Collaborative

Communication between providers is increasingly important in the quality of patient care.
