For the Future of Health Care Design, Look Beyond the Hospital | Co.Design

Posted on by Brandon Klein

The crisis is appearing on many fronts simultaneously:

-a funding gap (we can’t afford the care we want)
-a human resources gap (there aren’t enough medical practitioners)
-an energy gap (it’s the second most energy-intensive sector)
-a carbon gap (as pressure to reduce carbon emissions builds, the system continues to have many transportation and supply chain inefficiencies).

One might say that the health care system is finally encountering limits.
