Purposeful: An Architecture in Healthcare Workshop

Does healthcare still work the way we designed it to work? Or is it like a computer with too many apps running in the background? Each of us has our own thoughts about what needs to be reloaded, or quit. At PURPOSEFUL 2021, we will share those thoughts with each other, face-to-face, after a very long time, and exchange everything from great ideas and revelations, to simple tweaks that might make a big difference in delivering care.

Join us at PURPOSEFUL 2021: REBOOTING HEALTHCARE – at last – in-person, outdoors, vaccinated, and voluntarily masked – on Wednesday, August 18 at 4:30P in Pasadena. Our annual event will feature refreshments, interactive group participation, moderated discussions, and in-person networking with a diverse panel of owner and provider experts. (Scroll down for updates on who they are.) Let’s all share our collective thoughts and experiences—personal and organizational—and together, spark some new ideas to take us forward in healthcare design and delivery!
