Institute for Patient-Centered Design, Inc.

Design with Patients in Mind

The Institute for Patient-Centered Design, Inc. was founded by Patients and Design Professionals with the purpose of giving patients a voice in the development of the healing environment. Healthcare providers, medical staff, and design teams spend countless hours defining the requirements of a healthcare facility. Although these are key individuals to develop a successful project, the end users - patients - are often excluded from this process.

The Institute strives to improve the environment of care by addressing the needs of patients through design. Our mission is to contribute to the quality of healthcare delivery through patient-centered design advocacy, education and research.
