More than 1,000 individuals in the healthcare and design industry have become Evidence-based Design Accreditation and Certification (EDAC) certified since The Center for Health Design launched the program in 2009.
EDAC is an internationally recognized program that awards credentials to individuals who demonstrate an understanding of how to apply an evidence-based process (EBD) to the design and construction of healthcare settings.
The mission of the program was to create a “community" of industry professionals by providing education and assessment about evidence-based design. While most EDAC certified individuals are design professionals, 7% are healthcare professionals, 2% are students and 6% are product manufacturers. BD+C
