Session Description

Although the healthcare industry is overflowing with data, the built environment often plays a smaller role in data-driven decision making because of the lack of standardized and comprehensive spatial data sets. By translating floor plans into data that capture qualitative architectural characteristics like privacy, travel distances, and views, this method gives the built environment a bigger voice in decision making that relates design to healthcare performance. In this session, learn how the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute applied an automated spatial analysis to support its data-driven approach to improving design standards, prioritizing capital projects, and enhancing patient satisfaction.
