Connexient's Chief Product Officer, Geoff Halstead, spoke at the Comspark Tech + Innovation Conference in Mason, OH today.  to an audience of Healthcare and other Enterprise IT Executives.    In addition to presentation and demo, the session included a very active Q & A discussion.   

Wayfinding Applications: How Handheld Devices Are Changing the Way We Navigate

Improving patient experience is the #1 priority of hospitals. See how world class hospital systems are using mobile wayfinding to remove the stress of getting from place to place within their campuses.

In the age of smart phones, businesses with large campuses such as hospitals, universities, and malls are turning to navigation on handheld mobile devices as a resource to make it easier for customers and visitors to find their way.

Join Afidence CEO Bryan Hogan as he introduces mobile wayfinding and the many industries that could benefit from this technology. With him will be Connexient Chief Product Officer Geoff Halstead showing how the application MediNav has revolutionized wayfinding in hospital campuses nationwide.

The NIH Clinical Center and Connexient celebrated a major milestone this month:  the one year anniversary of the public launch of NIHCC Take Me There!

This article talks about how MediNav helps thousands of visitors, patients - and staff - get around the 4.3M SF facility, with 20,000 rooms, 13 miles of corridors, 15 outpatient clinics and 93 day hospital stations - as well as the the 340 acre campus.   It also speaks to some of the other advanced use cases in Operations and Safety and Security that are already being addressed - and are opportunities for integrations that Connexient is now working together with the NIH Clinical Center and application partners to implement.

"Our goal is to get the patient where they want to be when they want to be there," said Eric Cole, chief of the CC Administrative Management Department and lead on the implementation of the app. "In doing so we saw an opportunity to make the hospital safer. With NIHCC TakeMeThere, emergency personnel and first responders can now easily find any room in the facility no matter where it is or if they've ever been there."

Trying to maneuver Houston's many sprawling medical centers is equivalent to navigating a city within a city.

Actually, many would argue it's even harder. When you're sick, hurting or concerned for a loved one, trying to navigate your way to a doctor is not easy.

This app will help you navigate Memorial Hermann! Haley Hernandez is giving it a test run today and finding out how fast It can be expanded to other hospitals.

Who among us has not lost their car, their sense of direction and/or their mind navigating the maze of medical parking garages or the endless hospital hallways around Houston?

Relax, there's an app for that.  

The ACP Hospitalist came out yesterday with an in-depth article on the revolution in digital wayfinding for hospitals being driven by Indoor Positioning.

The article starts with a discussion of the Mayo Clinic's efforts to help visitors navigate through their medical campus, which encompasses 59 buildings spanning 15 million square feet, connected by a maze of pedestrian skyways and underground walkways,  and features an interview Mark Henderson, Mayo's Chair of Information Technology (IT). 

The article then turns to Connexient's MediNav, and an extensive interview with Chief Product Officer, Geoff Halstead.   Topics include:

  1. How "Indoor GPS" works
  2. The importance of outdoor + indoor wayfinding for Patient use cases - such as Connexient's Parking Planner and My Car Saver. 
  3. Not Just for Patients - how staff are using these new capabilities to improve efficiency.
  4. Location-based Services - how the Mayo Clinic and Connexient are pioneering location-based "e-checkin" and other advanced use cases that will enhance patient experience while improving Enterprise visibility and efficiency.

Until now, wayfinding apps have been mostly focused on the patient experience, but they are evolving into a more comprehensive navigation platform, said Mr. Halstead.

“Over time we can see many uses for wayfinding apps to help hospitals better manage patient flow and give better service,” he said. “They'll be used to remind patients about their appointment, tell them where to park, let the staff know they've arrived, and alert patients to delays. The goal is to solve real-world problems by providing much more than an indoor map.”
