ENGAGING PATIENTS IN HEALTH HAS BECOME A NEW CLINICAL PARADIGM.

 

 

The focus is expanding beyond illness to include wellness and wellbeing

  • Progresses are becoming less directive and more collaborative, involving patients and families more actively
  • Needs and expectations are changing as teaching and learning become more integral to the healthcare experience
  • New technologies are offering new ways to interact with information

POI has worked extensively with Canada’s leading hospitals, clinics, acute care, long-term care, assisted living facilities, and healthcare environments in the development of comprehensive solutions that are not limited to administrative offices.

Healthcare is personal and stressful. We understand the importance of feeling welcome, comfortable and confident the moment one enters any healthcare setting. This delicate balance is created through the integration of durable, virtually indestructible yet sophisticated furnishings and wall systems.

At POI, we take time to understand user needs and to observe healthcare facilities with a single goal in mind:

To See The Everyday In New Ways.

We are on a mission to understand how caregivers perform their duties, how patients receive their care, and what partners in care facilities want and need. As we work with our customers, our goal is to improve the long-term healthcare experience for everyone.

The unique requirements of healthcare environments include nurse stations, triage stations, patient testing, in-patient rooms, dining spaces, waiting rooms and lab areas.

POI’s expanding presence within the healthcare sector is focused on workplace effectiveness and efficiency for the caregivers—never compromising the patients’ comfort, care and dignity.

POI has worked on projects with leading caregivers, architects, designers, administrators, clients and clients’ customers who strive to make environments work better—We find solutions that work to improve the delivery of care.
