Doctor Office Interior Design is important, much like dental clinic floor planning. But what are the key factors that determine great doctor’s office interior design? Here we examine the answers in detail for your benefit.

 

Feng Shui Principles

Using Feng Shui, you can identify stress points in your workplace and neutralize them to increase productivity. Doctor’s office interior design and dental clinic floor plan both rely on ergonomic and efficient use of space. If you don’t make the best use of your environment, this can lead to a lack of flow in the workplace. This will also have a negative effect on productivity, rendering your staff less efficient, which is bound to affect patient satisfaction.

Placement of Furniture

Also, think about where you place your furniture. In waiting rooms, for example, instead of having seating in the middle of the floor, where it could lead to traffic jams, place it along walls. This will improve the flow of the room and put patients at ease. It is a natural instinct to want your back to a wall, representing safety and will contribute to a calm atmosphere. Furniture is a big part of interior design, which you should always pay appropriate attention.

Lighting

Additionally, you should also avoid having too many bright lights that will dazzle your patients. This can also contribute to feelings of drowsiness, especially for staff who are working there all day. We recommend investing in layered lighting, or even a dimmer switch. Then you can adjust your lighting to suit the time of day. This will allow patients and staff to make a stress-free transition from your waiting room to your exam room. And from there to the treatment room, back to the reception, and outside again.

Moving Forward: Modern Medical Office Construction

Medical office construction has changed a lot since we first founded Apex Design Build. As such, modern medical office construction practices are ripe with unique innovations that just wouldn’t have been possible decades ago. Current changes in labor, workflow, design, and culture have all changed the way we think about medical office construction. These new shifts in the status quo have challenged the ways in which we develop, design, and manage healthcare facilities. For example, hospitals now employ more than half of all doctors and surgeons, with numbers continuing to increase. Architects and providers, as well as developers, have had to alter their way of thinking to support the multispecialty of contemporary hospitals and medical offices. Equally, modern medical office construction reflects these changes. In this article, we look at the many innovations modern medical office construction has brought about.

Integrated Technologies for Your Medical Office

Modern medical offices have come to rely on a collaborative care system, with patient-centered medical homes, among other things. Namely, practical technological integrations, which can make patient experience better and physicians’ jobs more efficient. Technologies like desktop computer systems, electronic medical records, wireless networking, are all great examples. In fact, we believe multispecialty medical office buildings require design that optimizes technology for employees while supporting patient needs. Your medical office should have the best of both worlds, if not all of them.

When drawing up your medical office construction plans, we will take into account the features you require, while offering suggestions for additional facilities you may find useful. Similarly, materials, windows, walls, these things are all important but should be selected carefully. Like any integrated technologies, they should enhance the connectivity and functionality of your medical office, not hinder them.

Ease of Motion and Modularity

Your medical office is its own organism, each piece relying on and supporting others to function properly. If one piece fails, it can compromise the entire system. For your medical office, we at Apex Design Build always ensure that modularity and mobility are essential components for your workspace. When planning and constructing the building or office, we find that the best current medical offices have multifunctional exam rooms. Instead of limiting your workspaces to just one specific function, why not make them suitable for multiple uses? This can aid efficiency as well as patient experience in your office. Furthermore, your furnishings should also direct patient traffic with ease.

Think about how you place your furniture, how corridors flow. Is there only one path leading back to the waiting room for both in-patients and out-patients? Or do you require a one-way traffic system that guides patients back to reception while avoiding cramped hallways? Your equipment can also help with ease of motion, such as having certain pieces on wheels, which facilitates and encourages movement.
