ORLANDO, Fla., March 01, 2022 – View, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) (“View”), the leader in smart building technologies, today announced its Smart Windows have been installed in every room at the new high-tech Lake Nona Wave Hotel.

The hotel, billed as “the most technologically advanced hotel in the world,” recently opened in December. All 234 guest rooms, including 16 one-bedroom suites and two penthouse suites feature floor-to-ceiling View Smart Windows that use artificial intelligence to automatically adjust in response to outdoor conditions, keeping guests cool and comfortable without the need for blinds.

“With the Lake Nona Wave Hotel, we set out to integrate technology and hospitality in ways that delight hotel guests and improve their health and well-being,” said Jamie Bruce, Vice President, Hotel Portfolio at Tavistock Development Company, the developer of the Lake Nona community. “View Smart Windows align with every dimension of that quest—from delivering an unparalleled guest experience to enhancing guest wellness and improving sustainability.”

By maximizing access to natural light and outdoor views, View Smart Windows measurably improve occupant health and wellness. A recent study found that people living in homes with View Smart Windows slept an average of 16 minutes longer each night and reported 11 percent less anxiety and 9 percent less stress compared to those living in equivalent homes with traditional windows and blinds.

“View Smart Windows are a focal point among the innovative new technologies on display at the Lake Nona Wave Hotel and featured in many new buildings under construction in Lake Nona,” said Tavistock Development Company President Nick Beucher. “Our partnership with View is a critical part of our strategy to reimagine the built environment to improve how people live, travel, and work.”

View has worked with Tavistock Development Company on multiple buildings across Lake Nona, the 17-square-mile visionary community minutes away from Orlando International Airport. View Smart Windows have been installed in five buildings in Lake Nona across office, retail and hospitality projects and will be installed in more than 30 additional buildings.

“With Lake Nona, Tavistock is fundamentally reshaping the way that not only buildings, but entire cities are designed, built, and experienced,” said Dr. Rao Mulpuri, CEO of View. “Lake Nona showcases what’s possible when smart building technologies are thematically integrated across the entire spectrum of real estate—from offices to hotels, apartments, hospitals, and more. We could not be more excited to partner with Tavistock to define and demonstrate the city of the future.”

Lake Nona Wave Hotel’s use of technology includes one of the world’s largest fleets of autonomous shuttles, the largest single-use facility of TOTO smart toilets, voice-automated in-room controls, and Rosie, the hotel’s robot butler, who complements food and drink delivery for events.

ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 22, 2022) – The annual Lake Nona Impact Forum will convene 300 of the brightest minds and global thought leaders in health, wellbeing, technology, and business Feb. 23 –25 in the innovative community of Lake Nona in Orlando, Fla. The forum will feature a series of in-depth, collaborative discussions about health innovation in the new reality. The 2022 Impact Forum will explore a variety of pertinent topics such as health equity, mental health, aging, digital innovation, the global supply chain, and analyzing the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

This year’s Impact Forum speakers include the 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta, Chopra Global Chairman Deepak Chopra, Super Bowl Champion Russell Wilson and Grammy Award-Winning artist Ciara, Academy Award-Winning Actress Goldie Hawn, New York Times Bestselling Author Tony Robbins, Moderna Chairman and Co-Founder Noubar Afeyan, Christ Community Health Services Chief Community Engagement Officer Reverend Bobby Baker, Google Chief Health Officer Karen De Salvo, GuideWell President and CEO Pat Geraghty, HCA CEO Sam Hazen, King Enterprise CEO Reverend Terris King, Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) President and CEO Michelle McMurry-Heath, MIT Media Lab Director Dava Newman, Operation Warp Speed COO General Gustave Perna, former CDC Director Robert Redfield, Morehouse School of Medicine President and CEO Valerie Montgomery Rice, FedEx Chairman and CEO Frederick W. Smith, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg, Walt Disney Imagineering Global Ambassador Bob Weis, and more.

 

For many speakers, the Impact Forum marks key turning points in the pandemic. The 2020 Forum was held in February, just as timely details around COVID-19 were emerging. This year’s event marks a return to gathering in-person, giving the Impact Forum a unique perspective on the pandemic, and setting up the important conversations leaders in business, education, entertainment, government, and technology will lead about health innovation in the new reality. The Impact Forum’s National Advisory Board has directed specific health and safety protocols to ensure the wellbeing of all event delegates, staff, and guests.

 

Panels led by Sanjay Gupta, Noubar Afeyan, Robert Redfield, and Dava Newman will dive into the pandemic, explore lessons learned, and discuss the new frontier while conversations led by Frederick W. Smith and General Gustave Perna will examine impacts to the global supply chain. First-time speakers Reverends Bobby Baker and Terris King will lead discussions on health equity while Valerie Montgomery Rice and Pat Geraghty will drive dialogue around future innovation in the space, to name a few timely sessions.

 

Returning for 2022, Super Bowl Champion Russell Wilson will be joined by Grammy Award-Winning Artist Ciara to deliver the closing address on opening night. The couple will engage in a conversation about the personal passions that led them to create the Why Not You Foundation – a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting poverty through education and empowering youth. Wilson’s company Limitless Minds, which specializes in mindset, wellness, and peak performance experiences, opened a location in the Lake Nona Performance Club last year.

 

“There’s no doubt we live in a different world since the arrival of COVID-19,” said Lake Nona Institute Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Impact Forum, Gloria Caulfield. “This year’s Impact Forum is critical as we gather some of the world’s most outstanding minds to discuss what the future of health care, treatment, and wellbeing look like. We’re honored to facilitate the impactful conversations and connections that can lead to the scalable impacts and breakthroughs that will improve how we live.”

 

Lake Nona, one of the country’s healthiest and fastest growing communities, epitomizes the ecosystem of wellbeing thanks to purposeful planning, vibrant public art program, robust events calendar, and miles of trails intertwined with parks and green space anchored by a preeminent health and life sciences cluster. Home to top hospitals and research facilities, the U.S. Tennis Association National Campus with 100 courts, and the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute headquarters, Lake Nona is a living lab where the latest technologies and innovative solutions are tested in a real-world environment.

 

The Impact Forum is hosted by the Lake Nona Institute – a nonprofit, community-focused organization that leads Lake Nona’s wellbeing initiatives. In addition to the Impact Forum, the Institute’s current projects include a longitudinal study known as the Lake Nona Life Project and WHIT (a Wellness Home built on Innovation and Technology), which is defining what a smart home means.

ORLANDO (February 27, 2020) – The first white paper of a series authored by R. Lawrence Moss, MD, FACS, FAAP, president and CEO of Nemours Children’s Health System, calls attention to the direct connection between healthy children and long term U.S. economic growth and security. The white paper, How Children Can Transform the Economy…And Health Care was released today at the 8th Annual Lake Nona Impact Forum in Orlando.

“Strategic investments in children’s health and well-being can generate a significant return to the economic health of the United States,” said Moss. “We must seize the opportunity to change how we define health in children that will improve long-term workforce productivity for the next generation of adults and drive the American economy for years to come.”

Moss describes how moving  to a “pay-for-health” system of care and addressing the social determinants of health in children, can have a dramatic impact on the nation’s entire health care system. Children account for only about 7% of total medical care spending yet will soon become 100% of the adult population. “The benefits of intervention in childhood are seen across a lifetime and even impact the next generation,” says Moss. “These are smart, strategic investments for the future of our country.”

Recognizing that healthy children will lower overall health spending and improve the quality of the U.S. workforce, the paper outlines the actions Nemours is taking to have healthy children grow up to be healthy and productive adults. Specifically, Nemours has or has committed to the following:

  • Created a value-based services organization to support a culture shift in the payment model.
  • Adopted a population mindset to be accountable for children in the service area whether they seek medical care or not.
  • Partnered with organizations in addressing social determinants of health to apply each other’s areas of expertise and share the cross-sector rewards of improved child health and well-being.

“We are partnering with payers to develop pediatric-specific value-based payment programs and have developed the necessary infrastructure to execute. Our efforts to date have shown significant progress towards a paradigm shift that will lead to lower health care expenditures and better care for children,” said Jamie Clarke, Chief Value Officer at Nemours.

Making an effort through this paper to engage a broader set of private and public sector leaders to action, Dr. Moss paints a picture of a healthier and stronger America, “Our future is bright, just imagine a world where our economy is driven by the power of a truly healthy workforce. By making evidence-based changes in the way we “create” healthy children, we not only improve the quality of life for families, but we also improve workforce productivity and reduce health care-related costs to individuals, companies and governments/communities.”
