1. HCAHPS: What Does It Mean; Its Role in Patient Communication
Every day a new acronym is thrown our way. While HCAHPS has been around for the better part of a decade, understanding how furnishings, particularly something as simple as a whiteboard, can affect patient engagement is confusing. This CEU will define HCAHPS and explain the key role design plays in achieving higher scores. Discover Ghent’s product applications and relevance to help understand how to improve scores through design.
LEVEL® by BIFMA is a sustainability certification program that evaluates products, manufacturers, and brands ensuring they meet environmentally preferable and socially responsible furniture standards that contribute to sustainable building ratings. Learn about the 3-tier rating system, eco-friendly requirements, certified Ghent products, and more.
Sustainability improves the quality of our lives, protects our ecosystem, and preserves natural resources for generations to come. This CEU takes a look towards the future in sustainability for the furniture industry. We discuss how and when furniture connects to building ratings like LEED and WELL and when it does not. We also shed light on how to understand the differences between common sustainability standards like Declare, GreenGuard, and more.
