Connexient announced today that its MediNav™ Navigator Edition 2.0 has been selected by Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network in Milwaukee, WI. The MediNav system will provide rich indoor maps, true turn-by-turn indoor navigation and patient flow analytics to enhance the patient experience, reduce missed or late appointments and improve operational efficiency. The MediNav system will be deployed at Froedtert Hospital, the health network’s academic medical center hospital.
With over 3.5 million square feet of facilities and a large medical center campus, Froedtert represents and exciting new opportunity to solve real world problems of wayfinding for patients, visitors and staff. Deployment is well underway, so look for a public launch in Q1, 2017!
Recently, David Kaplan of GeoMarketing published an article on the impact of MediNav on patient experience and satisfaction. You can read the full article here:
Mr. Kaplan discusses the advantages of indoor navigation for Healthcare enterprises. Indoor Navigation with MediNav is a complete enterprise solution for Hospitals and Healthcare Networks. As Geoff Halstead, Connexient's Chief Product Officer, explains: "What we can help do is move the needle and reduce late or missed appointments by 10 percent — that’s a huge number for a hospital. Then there’s the whole issue of efficiency where, what is the wayfinding solution today? It’s whoever is in the white coat that patient walks by. And stopping a neurosurgeon or a nurse to ask for directions dozens of times a day is a very expensive wayfinding solution."
Yesterday, Connexient had the opportunity to present and demonstrate MediNav at Google's New York Headquarters. The event was cohosted by Thermopylae Sciences and Technology and Google Maps. Our Chief Product Officer, Geoff Halstead, discussed MediNav and how our partnership with Google Maps for Work helps us deliver high-quality, end-to-end indoor navigation. With Google Maps for Work, MediNav can guide a patient from home to a client hospital, recommend optimal parking, navigate indoors, find his or her car upon departure, and navigate back home. This provides an easy, seamless Indoor-Outdoor navigation experience! We would like to thank Google Maps for allowing us the opportunity to present our product and meet some fantastic people in the location-services and solutions field.
Recently, Claire Swedberg of RFID Journal published an article on the launch of MediNav at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The article can be found here:
Swedburg notes the benefits of Indoor Navigation for NIHCC's huge campus: "The NIHCC wanted a solution primarily to help patients map out their routes, but it knew that a wayfinding app could also benefit employees who needed to quickly locate offices, meeting rooms or departments. In addition, with an indoor location system using BLE beacons in place, even if patients lacked a smartphone or did not want to download the app, staff members onsite would have access to the app and could easily help a patient requiring directions."
Connexient is proud to announce today that we have become an official Google Maps for Work partner.
