Abstract

For many years, there has been a prevailing belief that higher investment in the initial phases of healthcare infrastructure projects not only reduces the life cycle costs but also improves, in the long term, service delivery and patient experience. The project Improving the therapeutic design of healthcare environments through modelling, simulation and visualisation commenced in 2007 and has been funded for three years by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) as part of a HaCIRIC (Health and Care Infrastructure Research and Innovation Centre) award. It was aimed at improving the therapeutic design of healthcare environments by developing an environmental design framework that supports assessments and improvements within multiple variable parameters.
