MyRush Mobile App Will Empower Patients to Navigate Directly to their Appointments Using Connexient’s MediNav and Epic's MyChart Technology
NEW YORK (October 22, 2018) -- Connexient announced today a partnership with Rush University Medical Center in Chicago to integrate the MediNav™ solution with the MyRush Mobile app; a mobile app for patients powered by Epic’s MyChart. Rush is the first Connexient customer that will combine Indoor GPS with appointment scheduling in MyChart.
MediNav provides the world’s most advanced turn-by-turn indoor navigation with popular features like Parking Planner, Find My Car and Meet Me. MyChart gives users access to lab results, appointment information, current medications, immunization history, and more on their mobile device.
“Healthcare consumers today demand excellence in patient experience,” said Dr. Shafiq Rab, Rush’s CIO. “They expect convenience and digital assistance throughout their patient journey. By weaving together indoor navigation and location services with MyChart’s capabilities, we are providing the patient with the easy to use tools to not only find their way to appointments, but to be their own advocates upon arrival. These are just the first steps Rush is taking to enhance the patient experience and improve our workflows”
“Dr. Rab’s leadership and vision for innovation is an important force in the transformation of healthcare,” added Mark Green, Connexient Co-Founder & CEO. “Rush’s world-class design and development team has created a single seamless experience for their patients. While we have anticipated this type of integration, we need partners like Rush University Medical Center and Epic to make it a reality.”
