This is about shifting the conversation from healthcare to health and wellness. Given the impact of healthcare reform, there is a push for health wellness and prevention solutions as systems strive to diversify how they deliver care in a population health model. In turn, an alternative model of healthcare-anchored mixed-use is gaining momentum that includes the use of big data and the concept of a healthcare provider as a partner in developing neighborhoods and communities, to foster and support a healthier lifestyle. Using a case study, we discuss the opportunities in this emerging health and wellness paradigm, and what it can mean in terms of how we approach our projects.
