Connexient was proud and excited to announce yesterday Smart Source and Connexient Join Forces to Provide Elevated Patient Experience, an industry leader in helping hospitals to increase productivity and revenue. With this partnership, our MediNav™ Digital Wayfinding solution will be linked to Smart Source's proprietary HandHolder™ appointment reminder system.

The combined MediNav™ /HandHolder™ pre-arrival/arrival solution will provide an enhanced and informative patient experience, meaning patients will have the information that they need to not only arrive on-time but also be prepared for their appointment. But there is another benefit that is just as important: improved on-time starts, reduced appointment no-shows and increased patient satisfaction scores for hospitals and physicians.Source: Smart Source LLC

This infographic encapsulates exactly how Smart Source accomplishes that by reducing missed and late appointme
nts - with proven success at major medical centers across the country.

With our new integrated offering, we are confident that we can boost the already strong ROI equation even further, while taking Patient Experience to a whole new level. In our blog earlier this week, Digital Wayfinding for Patient Experience is an ROI Story, we talked about some of those other drivers of ROI that we are focused on, including improved HCAHPS scores and improved staff productivity.

Our Job: Reduce Stress and Anxiety and Get Patients and Visitors to their Destinations

As much as we are true believers, innovators and visionaries when it comes to the power of Indoor Navigation and location-based services, we also have always had a bedrock conviction that a mobile app is only part of the solution. We always keep at top of mind what our value to our clients and users is. Nobody goes to the hospital to have an indoor navigation experience. They go to the hospital to get to their appointment. That's our mission.

That's why our All Screens approach to Digital Wayfinding is so critical. There are a huge range of demographics and 'user types' at Hospitals and Healthcare Networks. Some of them are "early adopters" that will love blue dot indoor navigation. Others will never touch it. And all will need maps, routes and other information available in multiple modalities:

  • on the Web for pre-planning;
  • on Kioasks and Digital Signs when they arrive;
  • via print options to take personalized route maps and directions with them.

The right modality is whatever each particular user needs at the moment - on any screen, any time, and anywhere.


Connexient + Smart Source: Integrating Appointment Scheduling with Digital Wayfinding

One mantra we talk to our clients about is the critical step of integrating Digital Wayfinding with that crucial moment when a patient and visitor is thinking about coming to their appointment. That is when we can connect the moment of need and motivation for a user to the MediNav application that will actually solve the problem - whichever modality they choose.

Our partnership with Smart Source will now take that integration even further, adding call-to-action and customized links right into the HandHolder™ pre-arrival/arrival solution. Connexient + Smartsource clients will now be able to take this already amazing effective and personalized tool to a new level of convenience and satisfaction for patients and visitors. With MediNav integration for example, users will now add the following capabilities.

  1. Parking Planner: personalized parking recommendation and guidance in Google Navigation to the right garage without error.
  2. Welcome Screen: a personalized prompt that automatically opens when the user enters the garage.
  3. My Car Saver: an automatic option to save the user's parking spot.
  4. Blue Dot Indoor Navigation: turn-by-turn right from their car, all the way to their final appointment destination indoors.
  5. Return to My Car: then hours later, guidance right back to their car.

It is pretty easy to see how this will reduce no shows and late starts, as well as the stress and anxiety that so many patients and visitors experience when trying to get to their appointments. It is a great example of 2 + 2 adding up to a 10!
