Healthcare Design - January 2014 - 19


3. Transparency on two fronts
The emergence of big data made possible by
increased digitizing of medical information is transforming healthcare delivery. The ability to harvest real
information about outcomes and relative performance
of hospitals-and make that data available to consumers-will continue to drive healthcare delivery improvement. Secondly, there's a revolution in building product
composition disclosure, driven by emerging science
on the impact of chemical exposures on health and
healthcare organizations' response to that science.
When Perkins+Will launched its Precautionary List in
2008, we were virtually alone. Today, there's the Living
Building Challenge Declare label; the Health Product
Declaration; and third-party, multi-attribute certification
programs like GreenScreen and Cradle to Cradle.

4. Community engagement
Across the U.S., hospitals and healthcare systems
are increasingly joining the growing anchor institution
movement and investing in their local community's
social, economic, and ecological future. For example,
Henry Ford Health System partnered with Wayne State
University to launch a "buy midtown" program, offering
financial incentives to employees to purchase or rent

housing in the neighborhoods surrounding its midtown
Detroit campus. The Cleveland Clinic and University
Hospitals launched the Evergreen Cooperatives,
employee-owned community businesses ranging from
urban greenhouses and laundry services to a startup
solar/LED lighting manufacturer. The continuing consolidation of health systems, coupled with the enormous
purchasing power of healthcare, will continue to propel
local community engagement.

5. Resilience
There's no mistaking that improving the resilience of
healthcare infrastructure is top of mind. The President's
Climate Action Plan, released in June 2013, contains
just two imperatives for healthcare: reduce carbon
emissions and enhance resilience. In "Designing to
Avoid Disaster," architect Thomas Fisher notes that
hospitals have become "fracture critical," with systems
so complex that they're vulnerable to the failure of a
single element. Resilience means incorporating essential redundancy into the everyday infrastructure
of hospitals, such as operable windows, daylighting,
on-site renewable energy, and cogeneration systems.
Hopefully, we'll stop relegating emergency systems to
minimal, normally extraneous capital investments. HCD
