New guidance from the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) and the American Hospital Association details the healthcare facility physical environment's impact on patient experience, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.
The new report is titled “Improving the Patient Experience Through the Health Care Physical Environment.”
