As LEDs and lighting controls continue to advance, the healthcare industry is about to undergo a revolution. Light has become an effective therapy for everyone touched by the healthcare system—from patients to medical personnel. Picture this: you’re at the doctor’s office. Instead of leaving with a prescription for medicine from the pharmacy, the doctor prescribes light. Yes, light. With the multitude of possibilities presented by tunable white lighting—that is, light matched to our bodies’ internal clocks—healthcare lighting will soon be about much more than mere visibility.
