The past few months have been a busy time at PatientPoint. We launched a physician-facing mobile app, acquired a company to deepen our hospital footprint and introduced Mike Collette as our new CEO.
In late January, we added to this excitement by moving PatientPoint headquarters to a robust 26,200-square-foot office in the Tower at Kenwood Collection in Cincinnati.
There was certainly a functional component to the move—we were running out of space for our growing team. But more importantly, we wanted our office to foster collaboration and innovation to drive bigger and better ideas for providers, patients and program sponsors.
With these goals in mind, we designed our new headquarters to shift from the traditional maze of cubicles to an open environment with increased meeting space. Our design came to life with a bright and open floorplan to encourage collaboration and 12 meeting spaces to facilitate large group discussions and quick huddles about new technology development.
Our new space also includes a product showroom where visitors can interact with PatientPoint solutions in a mock exam room setting. This hands-on experience provides a deeper understanding of the benefits our print and digital solutions bring to patients and physicians at the point of care.
We put our creativity skills to the test when naming office meeting spaces and invited our team to submit ideas that reflect our innovative culture. The winning submission came from Scott Whitlock, user experience designer and digital project lead at PatientPoint. His “fictional places” theme underscored our core company values of imagination, innovation and invention. A few of the resulting room names include:
- Metropolis (Superman)
- Mayberry (Andy Griffith Show)
- Emerald City (Wizard of Oz)
- Winterfell (Game of Thrones)
- The Bat Cave (Batman)
- Wonderland (Alice in Wonderland)
