Safe Space

Humanizing Hospital
Experiences After Diagnosis

Humanizing Hospital Experiences After Diagnosis Concept

Safe Space is a dedicated area within a hospital that offers patients a relaxing setting to converse with a medical advisor. It provides patients, who have been recently diagnosed, a chance to ask clarifying questions, be adviced, and seek emotional support, in a comfortable setting that doesn't feel like a hospital.

After a diagnosis, patients often need time to process the information and have conversations with their family. After such time, patients can go to the Safe Space to speak to a medical professional who is their advisor and mentor. As doctors are increasingly overbooked in hospitals, Safe Space allows individuals to book substantial blocks of time with their Safe Space Medical Advisor. ​

Project: 2 day Health Hackathon

Team: Caroline Brustowicz, Javiera                 Arenas, and Jiyeon Kang

The Problem and Context

After a major health diagnosis, patients are often overwhelmed and shocked to ask their doctor the questions they later wished they had.

A Solution: Safe Space

Safe Space

After a diagnosis, patients often need time to process the information and have conversations with their family. After such time, patients can go to the Safe Space to speak to a medical professional who is their advisor and mentor. As doctors are increasingly overbooked in hospitals, Safe Space allows individuals to book substantial blocks of time with their Safe Space Medical Advisor. As no medical treatment is being administered, Safe Space is a warm and welcoming space that does not have the sterile hospital feel.
