NEW YORK (September 25, 2018) – Connexient is pleased to announce its “Cool Vendor” status proclaimed by Gartner, a global research and advisory firm. Gartner’s  recent “Cool Vendors in Location Services for Wayfinding” report highlights interesting, new companies that are providing a solution to finding your way through large complex buildings and campuses.

Gartner Analyst, Tim Zimmerman advises “Infrastructure & Operation leaders should evaluate new and innovative technologies that don’t require any interaction with the enterprise infrastructure, while providing navigational guidance to anyone that needs to get to his or her destination. The ability to integrate different location services, such as the functionality offered from Connexient, provides infrastructure flexibility, and the hands-free implementation capabilities of professional service offerings makes it easier for organizations to deploy wayfinding solutions.”

“Who Should Care:  U.S. based healthcare, universities and corporate campuses should consider Connexient for their wayfinding solutions.”

“Why Connexient is Cool:  Connexient’s ‘Meet Me’ functionality makes meeting up with family and friends easy because either the user’s current location or a common destination can be shared.  The SDK also integrates with concierge services, such as parking applications to assure the closest parking spot to the client destination. The ‘Meet Me’ function also can be shared with valet services to have the car ready when the client arrives:  The application knows when the client leaves an appointment and the time the vehicle should be brought to the client. Connexient is a wayfinding and patient experience vendor that focuses inside the hospital environment with its MediNav Navigator SDK. The smartphone application, which can be developed directly by Connexient or indirectly by partners, provides voice guidance and audio prompts, turn-by-turn navigation, and off-route notification.  Connexient’s strategic relationships with Pole Star, Mist, Sonitor and CenTrak allow the MediNav SDK to use a diverse set of location providers.”

“With over 50 hospital clients and 10 strategic partnerships, Connexient is the clear market leader for digital wayfinding and enterprise indoor navigation services in healthcare,” said CEO and Co-founder, Mark Green.  “Furthermore, our recent Series A funding from Riverside Capital enables us to scale our sales and support resources to continue growing in the healthcare space.”

Indoor GPS Helps Patients and Visitors Find Their Way Through Rush’s Large Academic Medical Center

NEW YORK (July 18, 2018) -- Rush University Medical Center in Chicago announced today that is has selected Connexient’s MediNav solution for Digital Wayfinding and Indoor Navigation.

“By integrating MediNav’s robust and comprehensive indoor navigation and location services with our My Rush mobile app, we can make it easier for our patients, students and visitors to find their way to appointments and various locations,” said Dr. Shafiq Rab, Rush’s CIO. “Rush is committed to patient-centric healthcare, which starts with delivering an outstanding patient experience.”

Rush University Medical Center, just west of Chicago’s downtown, is part of the Rush System, which also includes Rush University, Rush Copley Medical Center (Aurora,IL) and Rush Oak Park Hospital (Oak Park, IL), as well as numerous outpatient care facilities. Rush University is a health sciences university that comprises Rush Medical College, the College of Nursing, the College of Health Sciences and the Graduate College, with more than 2,500 students.

The deployment of the new Wayfinding application by MediNav will start at Rush’s outpatient facilities, including the new Rush South Loop center that will open later this year, Rush Oak Park Hospital’s Medical Office Building, and the Professional Building on the Chicago campus adjacent to the Medical Center. Plans are to deploy the new technology system-wide.

Rush is integrating MediNav with its “My Rush” official mobile app. This will integrate the patient appointment and health information app, Epic MyChart with MediNav’s indoor navigation and location services to ensure patients get to their appointments on-time.

“We are delighted to work with Dr. Rab and his team at Rush,” commented Mark Green, Connexient Co-Founder & CEO. “Rush’s innovative mindset and vision for how technology can improve the overall patient experience will make this one of our most exciting deployments yet.”

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Finding your way to your doctor’s office at UAB Medicine just got easier. So did finding your way to the parking lot, the coffee shop and the restaurant across the street. Introducing UAB Medicine Wayfinder, the UAB Medicine wayfinding app, available on mobile devices and as a web version for desktop use.

UAB Medicine Wayfinder, using the MediNav™ Navigator Edition 2.0 wayfinding system from Connexient, makes finding and reaching locations in and around the UAB Medicine campus much easier. This free app provides step-by-step directions with functionality similar to Google Maps, enabling patients and their families, guests, and staff to reach destinations with ease and reliability, anywhere on the medical campus.

The app covers UAB Medicine’s main campus buildings indoors and out. It will lead users to the front door of outlying clinics and UAB Hospital-Highlands. UAB Medicine Wayfinder provides indoor and outdoor turn-by-turn navigation with voice guidance and visual references. It links clinic areas with parking lots, gift shops, guest services, and nearby dining options and hotels. It even remembers where you parked your car to lead you straight back to it.

“We are very excited to roll out UAB Medicine Wayfinder as a service to our patients, guests and staff as they navigate our busy campus,” said Jordan DeMoss, vice president of UAB Hospital. “The app and desktop versions provide maps and directions to clinical areas such as the Kirklin and Whitaker clinics of UAB Hospital, while also offering guidance to find clinics, inpatient units, pharmacies, laboratories and other resources. The app even provides a directory of health care providers.”

The app and desktop versions map the locations of banks, grocery stores, gas stations and other business services near UAB.

UAB Medicine Wayfinder is available in a mobile version for both iOS and Android devices, as well as a web version for desktop use. Within the medical campus, only a Bluetooth connection is needed to use the app. The desktop version provides the capability to print paper directions. The app is available at the App Store by searching for UAB Medicine Wayfinder, or click on UAB Medicine’s Wayfinder page. A video demonstrating the app is available on the page or by clicking here.

The app is powered by Bluetooth LE Beacon technology, which emits radio transmissions between the phone and installed fixed locations. There are 1,534 beacons arrayed across the UAB Medicine campus. The app covers 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.

“Connexient is thrilled to launch MediNav at UAB Medicine,” said Mark Green, Connexient CEO and co-founder. “UAB is consistently recognized as a most-wired hospital by Wired Magazine and is among the 20 largest hospitals in the United States. Couple that with our state-of-the-art digital wayfinding solution and you have a world-class patient experience.”
