Join Metropolis and KI's Twitterview on the Future of Healthcare

Metropolis will host a Q & A session with Susan S. Szenasy, the magazine’s publisher and editor in chief and and KI's Vice President of Healthcare Debbie Breunig. The conversation will take place on Twitter and users will be able to participate and follow along by using the hashtag #DesignForHealth.

Following in the steps of smaller, nimbler industries, healthcare is undergoing a paradigmatic shift, brought on by advancements in technology and changes in lifestyle. Experts are increasingly aware that innovation in healthcare implies something much more complex than specifying furniture and the latest gadgets. Questions about the role that design plays in healthcare facilities and how our changing understanding of wellness impacts our built environment are gaining urgency.

In an attempt to shed light on these questions, this Thursday December 10th, from 12:00 until 1:00 pm (EST), Metropolis will host a Q & A session with Susan S. Szenasy, the magazine’s publisher and editor in chief and and KI's Vice President of Healthcare Debbie Breunig. The conversation will take place on Twitter and users will be able to participate and follow along by using the hashtag #DesignForHealth.

As part of the conversation Szenasy, a long-term advocate for human-centered design, and Breunig, who comes from a rich background in nursing and business, will discuss the transformation of healthcare towards greater mobility and flexibility, while staying connected to its core value of providing critical support to multiple generations and diverse needs. They will discuss the shift from understanding healthcare technology as a final solution to valuing it as a tool of patient empowerment. With contributions from relevant thought leaders, the Twitterview will address the ways in which medical buildings and physicians’ offices are increasingly opening up towards the community, bringing the individual to the forefront in the caregiving experience and redefining what it means to provide healthcare.
