DOCUMENT INFO
Description: This report summarizes findings from the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) Healthcare Facility Evidence-Based Design Survey. TMA conducted 382 telephone interviews with active duty (AD) personnel and 36 interviews with AD spouses to solicit their opinions regarding 10 proposed healthcare facility design features that could improve the comfort and convenience of a hospital stay. The survey was composed of 10 multiple-choice questions that were based on recent findings in evidence-based healthcare facility design features. RESULTS: The 4 most important features for all respondents include having space in the patient room for overnight visitors, privacy features, and individual control of lighting and temperature. CONCLUSION: Developing specific hospital design plans will likely require continuing to work with patients and their loved ones to develop well-defined requirements. Potential study techniques include interviewing in facilities, holding focus groups, and observing patient and family behavior in the facility.
