Evidence-Based Design (EBD)
There are rumors that patient-centered care is emerging in the hospital setting and that there is (or will be) a new generation of healthcare facilities that will differ significantly from the institutional models currently known.
The research underlying these “supposed” new developments, known as Evidence-Based Design (EBD), draws on a number of areas of study including neuroscience, evolutionary biology, psychoneuroimmunology, and environmental psychology, with an emphasis on the idea that the design of the built environment can improve the quality of health care.
