Healthcare Design is hoping to get to the root of our industry's most pressing needs for innovation and change—and we need your help.

Innovation is all about the new—about the products, strategies, approaches, and processes that take the design of healthcare spaces beyond where we are today. How must each space in healthcare be rethought, or laid out differently, to support technological changes, patient expectations, staff productivity, and operational efficiency? What kinds of products are needed to support all of these needs and changes? How and where must construction processes change to improve efficiency, safety, and resiliency in delivering new facilities?

I urge all of you to share your invaluable perspectives and contribute to our new Innovation Survey. Consider this overall perspective on the concept of innovation as you answer the questions. Click here to take the survey, and watch for our March 2015 issue for a special report on the results.
