MediNav(TM) complements and extends STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout® RTLS platform to improve patient experience, patient flow and operational efficiency
WALTHAM, Mass. and NEW YORK, April 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — STANLEY Healthcare, the KLAS Category Leader for Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), and Connexient, the leading Digital Wayfinding and Indoor Navigation solution for hospitals and health networks, today announced a partnership to add Connexient’s MediNav Wayfinding solution to STANLEY Healthcare’s solution portfolio. The companies also plan to develop product integrations that will enable healthcare providers to manage and improve the patient experience not only within the hospital, but along the entire continuum of care.
The addition of Connexient’s MediNav solution to STANLEY Healthcare’s portfolio provides hospitals and health systems with yet another tool to manage the flow of patients and people in the facility. MediNav Navigator v. 2.0 provides a door-to-door approach to wayfinding, and location-services that solves real world problems for patients, visitors and staff; and can be integrated with EHR appointment scheduling systems to reduce missed or late appointments and drive a personalized patient experience.
- The patient receives a HIPAA-compliant SMS appointment reminder, with a link to the MediNav mobile application.
- MediNav securely displays appointment details, along with a recommended parking garage based on the interior location of the appointment, and turn-by-turn driving directions.
- At the parking garage, the patient can save the parking spot location for easy navigation back to their vehicle after the appointment.
- A Welcome screen then offers the patient e-Check-in options and turn-by-turn indoor navigation to their appointment. At the same time, hospital staff is notified of the patient’s arrival.
This end-to-end management of the patient journey enables hospitals to directly address some of the most common complaints on HCAHPS surveys, particularly difficulties with wayfinding and parking. MediNav provides powerful location-based reporting and analytics on patient, visitor and staff workflows and dwell times, giving hospital administrators actionable intelligence to improve the patient experience, drive higher HCAHPS scores, capture lost revenues by reducing missed appointments, and improving staff efficiency by reducing time lost directing patients.
MediNav Navigator v. 2.0, a cloud-based SaaS solution with market-leading indoor positioning technology powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacons, is the most advanced indoor navigation and digital wayfinding solution available. MediNav features include:
- All screens support – Web, Mobile, Digital Signage and Kiosk;
- Rich 2.5D indoor maps with 6 levels of zoom;
- Robust, reliable Indoor Positioning;
- True turn-by-turn indoor navigation;
- Integrated network-wide outdoor maps and directions.
“Smartphones and other mobile technologies that are BLE enabled are transforming how patients access hospital information and interact with healthcare providers. Connexient’s MediNav solution is the perfect complement to our existing Wi-Fi based solutions for Patient Flow, Asset Management, Environmental Monitoring, Hand Hygiene Compliance Monitoring and Patient and Staff Security,” said Gabi Daniely, Vice President of Solutions, Products and Marketing at STANLEY Healthcare. “Our partnership with Connexient will help our clients further improve staff communication, automate processes, accelerate responsiveness, increase security and streamline workflow across the entire continuum of care.”
Mark Green, the CEO of Connexient, added: “As a company dedicated to Indoor Mapping, Navigation and Wayfinding, our partnership with STANLEY Healthcare is tremendously exciting. We have very complementary solutions that bring the benefits of indoor location-based services to solve real problems for patients and providers.”
MediNav along with STANLEY Healthcare’s visibility and analytics solutions will be on display at the HIMSS 2015 Conference, April 13 – 15, 2015, in Chicago, Illinois. Visit STANLEY Healthcare at booth 2844 and at the Intelligent Health™ Pavilion (kiosk 19, booth 6656).
