The value of design : a study of pedestrian perception in New Delhi, India by Pooja Kumar( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis studies the influence of values and perception on pedestrian behaviour, to recommend how places can be designed to satisfy their user needs. By satisfying needs we mean creating user perceptions that resonate with the environmental values held by the users. This study examines user perception of a number of pedestrian environments in New Delhi, India to identify if the environments satisfy their users' environmental values, and then to explain how this happens. It studies Kevin Lynch's performance dimensions for good city form -- safety, access, fit, sense, and control -- as some environmental values that are common to most people. The study finds that user perceptions of how the environment affects these values will influence user behaviour. It also becomes evident that the legibility of paths, edges, and landmarks plays an important role in the mechanics of perception. Legibility is crucial to the pedestrian's mental image of the environment: the more legible the paths, edges, and landmarks, the easier it is for the user to construct his or her mental image. Legible surroundings will enhance the user's perception of the environment's ability to satisfy his or her values. The findings are used to recommend design improvements for the pedestrian environment. The successful application of this study method in New Delhi suggests robustness of Lynch's analysis regarding how the legibility of the physical environment - especially of paths, edges, and landmarks - is a key determinant of the success of an environment to satisfy important values that are common to most users
Creating and Maintaining a Successful Service Line in an Academic Medical Center at the Dawn of Value-Based Care( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : The service line (SL) model has been proven to help shift health care toward value-based services, which is characterized by coordinated, multidisciplinary, high-quality, and cost-effective care. However, academic medical centers struggle with how to effectively set up SL structures that overcome the organizational and cultural challenges associated with simultaneously delivering the highest-value care for the patient and advancing the academic mission. In this article, the authors examine the evolution of UMass Memorial Health Care's heart and vascular service line (HVSL) from 2006 to 2011 and describe the impact on its success of multiple strategic decisions. These include key academic physician leadership recruitments and engagement via a matrixed governance and management model; development of multidisciplinary teams; empowerment of SL leadership through direct accountability and authority over programs and budgets; joint educational and training programs; incentives for academic achievement; and co-localization of faculty, personnel, and facilities. The authors also explore the barriers to success, including the need to overcome historical departmental-based silos, cultural and training differences among disciplines, confusion engendered by a matrixed reporting structure, and faculty's unfamiliarity with the financial and organizational skills required to operate a successful SL. Also described here is the impact that successful implementation of the SL has on creating high-quality services, increased profitability, and contribution to the financial stability and academic achievement of the academic medical center
