    A Closer Look: York University Student Centre

    *This is part of a series examining design concepts throughout firm projects. The recently completed York University Student Centre was created to address the doubling of the Toronto university’s size since the original student center was built, providing a new gateway to the campus, along with 150,000 square feet of student-centered spaces for recreation, meetings, individual and group study, club offices, assembly, and multi-faith prayer. The student body was very involved in the building’s programming and its final expression; the very transparent façade, for example, was a response to their desire that the facility be welcoming and open to all.

  • Understanding the World of Telehealth Reimbursement

    Understanding the World of Telehealth Reimbursement

    Telehealth not only has the ability to increase convenience and improve care for remote patients, it also improves emergency department throughput, and ultimately can reduce potentially avoidable admissions. While telemedicine capabilities are some of the most exciting existing in healthcare today, inconsistent reimbursement standards continue to hinder successful program adoption. Challenges continue in navigating the state-level variability in regulations and capturing procedures to receive the appropriate compensation and reimbursement. Because of its potential, it is crucial for organizations implementing telehealth to work closely with legislators and insurance companies to ensure reimbursement occurs in a timely and effective manner. Fortunately, the growing interest in implementing telehealth solutions has prioritized reimbursement evolution....

    Decoding the Recipe for Success for Your Ambulatory Strategy

    While the major shift from inpatient to ambulatory care is allowing healthcare systems to remain at the forefront of medicine, it also creates significant challenges with respect to reimbursement, revenue, and patient volume. Exacerbating those challenges, there isn’t a “one size fits all” ambulatory strategy. Just as there is no single type of consumer, there is no single right or highest use of an ambulatory facility. Every patient is unique in how they want to interact with a health institution. And technology, digital solutions, experience, and patient expectations all play a role in their interactions. In order to build a successful ambulatory strategy, health systems need to approach ambulatory care...
