In addition RWJUH has deployed MediNav iPad Kiosks in its lobby and will be adding the Web site version later this summer.
This launch makes Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital the first hospital in North America to deliver for its patients, visitors and staff the world's first true turn-by-turn indoor navigation smartphone application, with reliable indoor positioning accuracy of 1 to 2 meters. Powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacons and Polestar handset sensor fusion technology, MediNavTM Navigator v. 2.0 is the most advanced indoor navigation application available, with rich features that users have come to expect from Google or Apple in the "outdoor world".
The launch is a hugely important milestone for Connexient, in that it represents the culmination of everything we have learned. There is a huge difference between a good looking demo, and making indoor positioning work reliably and accurately at scale in real-world environments, and there is no substitute for doing the hard work to get there.
As our CEO and Co-Founder, Mark Green put it, “RWJUH has been a fantastic partner and collaborator in realizing the vision of true indoor navigation and how it can improve the Patient Experience. Even more exciting is their commitment to the continued evolution and application of our platform for Indoor Location-based Services to solve problems and bring ROI to the Enterprise as a whole.”
Joanne Arico, RN, BSN, Director of Patient Experience at RWJUH added “The launch of MediNav is the first step in a journey to use indoor navigation and location-based services to benefit all of the stakeholders at RWJUH. Our focus for 2015 is to enhance our patient experience, as well as improve staff efficiency and prevent late and missed appointments.”
So today is important milestone along our path, to look back and around, and be thankful for how much we have grown. But we are looking forward even more to the path ahead!
