NEW YORK and SYDNEY, July 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Connexient and CriticalArc announced today that they have formed a partnership to integrate Connexient's MediNav™ Navigator Edition 2.0 with CriticalArc's SafeZone security response and emergency management solution. The combined solution will revolutionize the ability of organizations with complex campuses and facilities to respond to security and emergency incidents.
Connexient is the market leader in Digital Wayfinding and Enterprise Indoor Navigation Services for healthcare, with a rapidly growing roster of over 43 hospital clients. Powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacons and sophisticated handset sensor fusion technology, MediNav™ Navigator v. 2.0 provides rich indoor maps, "blue dot" indoor navigation and location-based services for patients, visitors and staff.
CriticalArc is global technology innovator and the creator of the distributed command and control solution, SafeZone, which has been adopted by dozens of universities and hospitals across the world over the last several years. SafeZone fundamentally changes the way organizations manage safety and security operations across dispersed campuses and multi-site organizations, allowing proactive response that positively impacts the outcome of any incident.
The combined offering will integrate Connexient's indoor navigation and location services, along with its end-to-end outdoor + indoor maps, to enable truly transformative capabilities for large, complex facilities with real time situation awareness, navigation-enabled response and intelligent egress.
Connexient's Co-Founder and CEO, Mark Green, stated: "As the leader in Enterprise Navigation Services, Connexient is always discussing new use cases for indoor navigation with our clients. One of the most frequent and compelling topics that comes up is Safety and Security. Our clients tell us that they are literally 'flying blind' when they try to respond to issues inside large, complex buildings. We realized that if we could combine indoor mapping and navigation with a robust safety and security solution, the positive impact would be enormous. Our partnership with CriticalArc is focused on exactly that."
CriticalArc's Co-Founder and CEO, Glenn Farrant, added: "SafeZone empowers first responders and incident managers through real time shared location information and incident details sent simultaneously to the control-room and to mobile responders in the field. This allows optimal response across campuses, satellite locations and for workers in the community. Integrating Connexient's indoor maps and navigation services will enable us to extend the benefits and unique capabilities of the SafeZone solution to large, complex buildings and indoor environments, and add the new and unique element of indoor navigation. Compared to the situation today, that is a truly revolutionary step forward."

HOUSTON (May 11, 2017) –Memorial Hermann Health System has announced the launch of Memorial Hermann Find My Way, a digital wayfinding app aimed at improving the patient experience while reducing late and missed appointments. The app currently features navigation for Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center, with plans to expand to other locations throughout the System in the near future.
“At Memorial Hermann, we recognize that navigating health care can be frustrating. We’ve made it our mission to put the patient first, and that means removing barriers by directly addressing some of the most common complaints – particularly difficulties with wayfinding and parking,” said David Bradshaw, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at Memorial Hermann.
Modern Healthcare recently reported on a wave of wayfinding strategies being tested nationwide, as health systems search for solutions to improve the patient experience. “We are excited to be the first health system in Houston to announce this innovative beacon technology, which is just the beginning of a more seamless healthcare experience for our patients and members,” said Bradshaw.
Find My Way is powered by Connexient, whose MediNavTM solution has been deployed at over two dozen major health systems across the country. The beacon, blue dot technology guides a patient or visitor from their starting location to their final destination by providing door-to-door directions for: hospital departments; physician offices; points of interest such as ATMs, dining facilities, pharmacies and more; and even the most convenient parking location based on the appointment location inside the facility. Advanced features, such as a parking planner, marks the exact parking location and navigates the user back to his or her car when finished with an appointment or visit.
“We are delighted to announce Memorial Hermann as the first health system in Texas, and 24th in the nation, to select MediNav as its wayfinding solution of choice,” said Mark Green, Connexient CEO and Co-Founder. “The System has been a long-time leader in innovation and technology. This digital strategy exemplifies its commitment to patient experience and healthcare transformation.”
Memorial Hermann Find My Way is currently available as a free download in the App Store for IOS and Google Play for Android.
