Mobile cloud platform from Phunware helps patients, visitors and staff better navigate and engage with hospital facilities in real-time

Austin, Texas [September 7, 2018] – Today Phunware, a leading enterprise cloud platform for mobile which provides software, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, announced their selection by a leading U.S. nonprofit medical center to license their Multiscreen as a Service (MaaS) platform, including mobile wayfinding and engagement solutions, to integrate with an existing mobile application.

Digital transformation in hospitals is increasingly mobile-first, and in highly fluid environments like healthcare facilities, mobility provides greater flexibility, productivity and efficiency. Integrating mobile wayfinding for patients, visitors and staff is the first logical step to digital transformation. That same mobile location technology can help solve for many other use cases that support digital transformation, including mobile engagement, which helps hospitals provide personalized experiences to patients before, during and after each visit.

The integration of Phunware’s enterprise cloud platform for mobile across the 18 million square-foot facility will provide:

  • Real-time blue dot routing and static navigation from any configured point of interest to destinations within the medical center
  • Access to maps that feature points of interest such as physician offices, gift shops, elevators, etc., which can be updated and edited by staff for construction updates, office location changes and more
  • Personalized alerts and promotions to patients and visitors based on their location or attributes, including appointment and parking reminders, health and wellness tips, or routing changes
  • Analytics and business intelligence to connect the dots between patients, locations and campaigns to uncover rich insights across the entire patient journey

“We’re extremely proud to be part of this digital innovation deployment,” said Alan S. Knitowski, co-founder and CEO of Phunware. “By licensing Phunware’s MaaS platform, we can help provide a richer and more personalized mobile experience for patients and increase staff efficiency at this facility.”
