In his more than 25 years of experience of working on hundreds of hospitals to create patient-centered spaces, David Johnson has been an avid follower of the principles of evidence-based design. So it is no surprise to all of us who work with David here at JJCA that he has demonstrated his knowledge by becoming EDAC-accredited.
EDAC stands for Evidence-based Design Accreditation and Certification and is a program that has established new standards for individuals who are using an evidence-based design process for healthcare building projects. An EDAC
accredited individual can help make design decisions and recommendations based upon the best available research information. Using this process has been proven to produce measurable improvements in healthcare facility
clinical outcomes, economic performance, productivity, customer satisfaction and cultural measures, among others.
