One of my friends who is writing a book, asked me if I could write a chapter on the future of hospitals and how they will look and function in the future. I started making some quick mental notes and then I jotted them down on paper. I came up with 99 things that will be different in the Hospital of the Future. Without much ado, here is the first draft of the list. Please add to this list in the comments section. On demand access for the patient 1. Access to information 2. Access to care providers 3. Access to family Expanding and re-imagining the space 4. Making hospital more like home 5. Bringing hospital closer to home 6.
