Technology opens new opportunities for patients and doctors to use a Web portal to connect with specialists all over the world.

Finding a doctor used to be a frustrating experience for people with serious or chronic health conditions, especially if they lived in small communities where specialists were scarce.

The internet has helped to erase the distance between patients and the specialists they need. Most leading hospital websites have comprehensive “find a doctor” services, but one entrepreneur believes people should be able to use the Web to contact doctors worldwide.

Phoenix Children’s Hospital Phoenix, Arizona
by Todd Hutlock, Editor-in-Chief

As seen in the September 2003 issue of HEALTHCARE DESIGN, Phoenix Children’s Hospital was remodeled and renovated in 2002. Featuring a design from Karlsberger Companies, the hospital was built upon the framework of a former adult general hospital campus, and successfully so—HEALTHCARE DESIGN even awarded the project a Citation of Merit in the 2003 Architectural Showcase. But even the best laid plans will only work for so long in an ever-expanding healthcare world. A few years later, a new campus master plan was established, incorporating new parking garages, a new central energy plant, and a new front door-the distinctive new patient tower, designed and executed by HKS, Inc. The tower, designed to emulate a night-blooming desert flower, is the cornerstone of the new campus plan, but far from the last step in its reinvention. HEALTHCARE DESIGN Editor-in-Chief Todd Hutlock spoke with three members of the HKS design team-Principal-in-Charge Jeffrey Stouffer, AIA; Senior Construction Administrator Sidney Smith, AIA; and Interior Designer Sandra Miller, IIDA, LEED AP-about this latest addition to a forward-thinking pediatric campus.

¿Empeora las alergias? ¿Aumenta el riesgo de padecer problemas cardiovasculares? Verdades y mentiras sobre cómo afecta la contaminación atmosférica a nuestra salud

El aire que respiramos nos puede enfermar o, en casos extremos, llevar a una muerte prematura. Diversos estudios científicos han demostrado que reducir las emisiones contaminantes mejora drásticamente la calidad de vida de la población.

Las partículas en suspensión PM0,1 llegan hasta la sangre

Un 15% del asma infantil podría deberse al tráfico urbano

Hay una fuerte correlación entre la diabetes adulta y la contaminación

Hace unas semanas saltó la alarma social en varias ciudades españolas que sufrieron jornadas con altos niveles de contaminación en el aire. No es para menos. Existen centenares de investigaciones epidemiológicas que evalúan los efectos adversos de la polución en la salud humana. Respirar aire nocivo puede provocar un aumento en el número de defunciones, de ingresos hospitalarios y de visitas a urgencias, especialmente por causas respiratorias y cardiovasculares.
