UAB MEDICINE TO ADOPT CONNEXIENT'S INDOOR WAYFINDING SOLUTION

UAB Medicine, the University of Alabama at Birmingham's academic health center and health system, has announced plans to use Connexient's MediNav Navigator Edition 2.0 wayfinding system for UAB Hospital and its Kirklin Clinic. MediNav provides indoor maps, as well as indoor navigation and location-based services, Connexient says. The solution utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons, supplied by a variety of providers, that work in conjunction with a mobile app for iOS and Android devices.

The system is designed to function as an indoor GPS for patients, visitors and personnel, Connexient reports. By helping visitors find their way through the facilities, the company explains, the system can improve the overall patient experience in order to increase customer satisfaction, help reduce missed or late appointments, and improve operational efficiency.
