As more and more of us carry smartphones, general hospitals throughout the world are switching on to their potential for:
- Improving patient and visitor experience
- Reducing ‘did not attend’ rates for appointments
- Reducing wait times
- Saving on paper use
Hospital apps can contain contact details for consultants and departments.
There is potential to include maps that can be zoomed and panned around. These can be linked to appointment letters or emails in order to direct the patient/visitors to their destination. This wayfinding functionality reduces stray traffic into other hospital areas, and frees up staff time. It is even possible to show the user’s location on a map using indoor positioning technology.
Take a look at our proposed solution here. Contact us if you are interested in piloting it with us.
