  • Abstract:
    An ongoing US research and demonstration project, the Pebble Project, uses a transdisciplinary evidence-based design process for assessing and informing design decisions on a diverse array of new and existing healthcare facilities. The Pebble Project measures the outcomes of the innovations and shares these results with the larger healthcare community. The emphasis is on understanding the linkage between the physical environment (as one of many parameters) and health outcomes and overall performance. It provides an opportunity to assess and understand how hospital design can help reduce staff stress and fatigue and increase effectiveness in delivering care, improve patient safety, reduce patient and family stress, and improve outcomes and improve overall healthcare quality. The combined research and innovation process provides a framework for organizing research projects and assists with the formation of an emerging health facility body of knowledge. Evaluations from completed projects suggest that the evidence-based design process is better for patients and staff in hospitals. Hospitals that have carefully considered and incorporated these value-driven evidence-based design features have benefited in terms of improved quality of care, increased satisfaction, and financial savings.
