Touchscreen Pedestal

When designing for hospital environments, there are a number of existing architectural and interior conditions that must be considered. Hospitals have typically expanded over many years (and with a variety of consultants and contractors) and there could be a number of issues related to wayfinding and patient experience that need to be addressed.

In one such instance, there was a large vestibule which presented visitors with essentially two options. With little room for physical signage (based on the actual square footage and number of departments and patient destinations within), a logical choice was to place a multi-touch interface in the central portion of the space instead.

Outcome

While this concept was not implemented, it presented the client with a new way of thinking and a valid option when considering the patient experience and wayfinding in a confined space—a design with a positive outcome. There is value to be had even when concepts are not used.
