Introduction: Health institutions are inserted in an organizational conglomerate and where each of the organizations that make up society are subject to management as a fundamental pillar for their permanence in the system. There is an element that in the evidence of the implementation of care management models has not been raised as a critical success factor and that is essential in the organizational structure. This is evidence-based design (EBD). Therefore, the objective of this article is to explain the relevance of DBE in the implementation of care management models.
Development: The design of healthcare facilities is a complex process that not only creates and allocates physical spaces, but also shapes the dynamic flows of patients, staff, visitors, equipment and information. In this context, it is relevant that nurse managers are participants in the prior planning and programming process, so that they are involved in making structural decisions that allow patients' needs to be resolved.
Conclusion: With the current unprecedented increase in hospital construction, it is imperative to integrate the institutional management model, the financing model and the care management model and consider the environmental characteristics that influence the well-being of patients, visitors and personnel are identified and incorporated into future hospital designs.
