Texas Children’s Hospital Wayfinding

In fiscal year 2013, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) began withholding a portion of hospital payments based on their performance. CMS makes adjustments to measures and domain weights each year to reflect an emphasis on those areas most in need of improved performance. Four domains will impact up to 2% of a hospital’s Medicare reimbursement in FFY 2017: process of care (core measures), patient experience (HCAHPS), efficiency of care and outcomes.

Hal Kantner's Sketchbook

Our Possibilities Sketchbook process can be summarized as rapid conceptualization through visual listening. The ideas generated in interviews and group discussions are turned into visual meeting notes. The sketchbook’s minimal investment in production allows all stakeholders’ ideas to live equally, side by side, inside a readily distributable, easily reviewable deliverable.

Wayfinding Goes Digital

From touchscreens to handheld devices, the future of digital wayfinding is in your hands.

Long considered the flashy stepsister of traditional signage, digital signage has generally been known for its chameleon-like ability to convey multiple messages, loop promotions, or display ambient imagery.
