throughout the two-story building, which was converted
from a former retail space. Patients register in intake
rooms on the ground floor and then move to their point
of care. Electronic health records expedite the check-in
process. After leaving an exam room, patients stop in
one of the private checkout offices where they connect
with a specialist who reviews their records. The 15-minute check-in period reduces the time physicians formerly
spent filling in missing information and increases doctorpatient care time.

Newer clinics might be reminiscent of a
holistic retreat, in which patients can get
an annual physical in a spa-like setting.
A new kind of clinic
Taking the concept of flexibility and adaptability a step
further, many healthcare organizations have an opportunity to imagine a new kind of clinic-a clinic that takes an
integrated approach to health and wellness. While most
patients will never mistake a clinic for a resort, healthcare
facilities nonetheless are projecting a welcoming image with
warmer finishes, more intuitive wayfinding, and a stronger
connection to natural light and other spa-like features.
This new clinic might be reminiscent of a holistic retreat,
in which patients spend a day in a spa-like setting for their
annual physical. That day may include separate visits with
a primary care physician and necessary specialists for
a complete check-up, on-site wellness classes, healthy
cooking and nutrition demonstrations, one-on-one wellness
coaching, lunch in a chef-inspired cafeteria, or time in a
learning center.
Flexible spaces can accommodate different settings as
market demands or care models evolve. Common spaces
with surrounding ancillary services can be designed to
flexibly accommodate different needs and programming
throughout the day or year. Open floor plans, modular
walls, and system furniture can be reconfigured to accommodate yoga classes one day and cooking demonstrations the next.
For many healthcare organizations, flexibility and adaptability are essential to delivering quality care, responding to
today's needs as well as to long-term changes. We can't
predict what the clinic will look like in five years, but as
patients find more choices in their care, the most successful
primary care clinics will address the cycles of change. The
clinic in five years is a clinic in constant evolution. HCD
