With numerous architectural projects throughout the nation providing experience in programming, planning, designing, and constructing ophthalmic clinics, we have developed unique methods for evaluating patient flow that utilizes creative space planning, design, and advanced technology. Our methods have set new standards in physician and staff efficiency for countless ophthalmology clients, providing them with the competitive edge that they were looking for. Additionally, we frequently hold Discovery Workshops with our clients to identify their short- and long-term goals and needs as well as the most effective and efficient work flow for their practice. Using the information we gather during these sessions, our team is able to program and design innovative and creative solutions to address critical efficiency issues and accommodate patient needs/expectations. Our team members are also involved in the following ophthalmic organizations ASOA, ASCRS, AAO, and OOSS.
Several years ago, Eckert Wordell and Tekna came together to develop a workshop geared toward ophthalmology practices and providers in order to determine what was coming next in healthcare, and more specifically, ophthalmology. The result was the development of the Envision Workshop. The Envision Workshops were designed to be a multistage (year) learning and planning event that was built around a Discover, Analyze, Create, and Develop workflow. The workshops engage the audience, generate discussion, examine innovation, and explore the future in an effort to continually improve healthcare facility design, develop more efficient workflows, meet and exceed patient expectations, and forge new ideas for a healthier tomorrow.
