Finding your way to your doctor’s office at UAB Medicine just got easier - thanks to MediNavTM! So did finding your way to the parking lot, the coffee shop and the restaurant across the street.
UAB kicked off the marketing launch today for UAB Medicine Wayfinder, available on mobile devices and as a web version for desktop use. UAB Medicine Wayfinder powered by MediNav™ Navigator Edition 2.0. This is one of our largest deployments to date, with 1,534 beacons arrayed across the UAB Medicine campus, and providing maps and navigation for 10.7 miles of routable pathways and over 5 million square feet of space with 135 points of interest or destinations covering seven buildings and three parking garages.
MediNav's ability to provide end-to-end indoor + outdoor wayfinding and navigation is particularly important at UAB, where people must navigate across multiple buildings on a huge campus and to outlying clinics and UAB Hospital-Highlands.
These capabilities also support our popular Parking Planner and My Car Saver features, which get users to the right parking garage based on their indoor appointment locatiion and even remembers where you parked your car to lead you straight back to it.
Today's launch is just the beginning of the first phase for MediNav at UAB Medicine, who have a strong vision for how indoor mapping and navigation services can be integrated with other Enterprise applications and platforms to:
- reduce missed and late appointments and further enhance patient experience; and
- improve Enterprise efficiency across operational workflow, asset tracking, facility management, safety & security response and more.
So today is an important milestone to celebrate - but just the first in a path driving realizing all of the value for users and Enterprise ROI that can be achieved with Medinav!
