Spend a little money on research, you might save a lot

The Danish Healthcare System is reorganising the care and treatment of acute patients in hospitals. Emergency wards and wards that receive acute patients are replaced by emergency wards with observation units all over Denmark. These joint emergency wards are in general named, in Danish, FAM (Fælles Akutmodtagelse).

In order to learn from past experiences – both positive and negative, I performed a mixed methods research study on the existing FAM at Odense University Hospital. The focus of the study was the psychological experience of patients and employees based on their interaction and spontaneous feelings concerning the clinical and interior design in the present patient and treatment rooms.

Research and innovation project at the dialyses ward

The Dialysis Ward of Fredericia Hospital has a long and proud history, as well as a stated objective to be the worlds best dialysis ward. The ward is now to be relocated in a brand new building at another hospital – Kolding Hospital. But how do you take an organisation, change it to the better and at the same time enable its stated objective through a new physical design and architecture?

Well, through ethnographic research and a service design optics Nikolaj Bebe and the rest of the SDSI team found out, that a normal dialysis treatment in time corresponds to the time going from Copenhagen, Denmark to Malaga, Spain by plain, except for that a dialyses treatment at the ward doesn’t have the same time economy that, on the other hand, is a perfectly deliberate and intended strategy in the airport industry.
