LILLE REGION: TOMORROW’S HEALTHCARE TODAY
Having unveiled the hospital room of the future in 2012, Lille’s University Hospital Center (CHRU) and Clubster Santé, a Lille Region health industry network, are now designing tomorrow’s outpatient surgery center. Their goal: create an optimal outpatient structure that promotes patient wellbeing and simplifies the work of care providers.
NEW FOCUS ON OUTPATIENT SURGERY
Today’s hospitals are trending sharply towards outpatient treatment: in the US and UK, 80% of surgical treatment is performed on an outpatient basis, and France aims to raise its proportion of outpatient procedures from 36% today to 50% by 2016. That’s why CHRU and Clubster Santé have moved on to phase two of the Concept Room project, inspired by the automobile industry’s concept cars. Building on Concept Room Opus 1, a futuristic hospital room unveiled in 2012, Concept Room Opus 2 showcases tomorrow’s outpatient surgery center, designed around the core principles of progress and patient autonomy.
