Navigation and positioning inside hospitals is a serious patient-related issue for every medical facility. We be­lieve that integrated IoT location-based services for smart hospitals, which combine capabilities of precise indoor navigation and real-time tracking will dramatically affect business processes in healthcare systems management. Indoor navigation and hospital positioning are crucial to keeping a hospital staff focused, productive, and free from interruptions. Lately, smart hospitals have moved towards a more integrated approach to communication with patients. Personalized mobile hospital map apps include hospital wayfinding and location-based alerts for visitors, visitors tracking systems, proximity marketing, healthcare assets tracking, indoor outdoor navigation system for hospitals and other adjacent functions.

Navigine understands the weaknesses and needs of this industry and has created location-based services to improve the Healthcare system's bottom line. Our integrated approach consists of four indoor navigation solutions for hospitals:

Precise Hospital Positioning & Wayfinding

Poor wayfinding for hospitals contributes to patients' and visitors' stress. Every day lots of anxious visitors try to find their way and every fourth visitor asks staff for directions. So a comprehensive healthcare wayfinding approach is invaluable as it helps staff and patients cope with indoor navigation in hospitals. Mobile healthcare wayfinding for patients became an important aspect of visiting a hospital. It improves patient satisfaction and helps to personalize the experience, using location-based alerts for patients.

  • Features:
  • interactive maps of hospitals with rooms and amenities;
  • hospital wayfinding to any POI for patients, visitors, and staff;
  • real-time turn-by-turn navigation at floor maps like in Google maps app;
  • appointment reservation with a doctor or contacting a nurse depending on their availability;
  • personalized location-based notifications depending on the needs of a patient or a visitor.
  • Expected benefits:
  • significantly reduced time spent on searching for the patient ward or doctor's office;
  • informative interaction with help of location-based alerts for patients;
  • improved patients' and visitors' communication and engagement;
  • improved patient safety and satisfaction.

Indoor Traffic Monitoring

It is critical to developing a monitoring hospital system that provides the best patient care within limited resources. An important aspect of this objective is to find ways to improve patient flow. Another task is to provide timely treatment and maximum utilization of available resources. People flow tracking through a collection of location-based analytics in hospitals is aimed to increase the safety level and improve logistics processes.

  • Features:
  • “visual” location-based analytics of patient traffic using heat maps and flow maps;
  • monitoring of statistical parameters of patient traffic and bottlenecks identification;
  • traffic segmentation on regular, transit, and temporary visitors (without personalization);
  • appointment reservation with a doctor or contacting a nurse depending on their availability;
  • smart hospital tracking system for visitors;
  • automatic signaling in case of dangerous peaks in patient's concentration.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time monitoring of patient traffic to ensure a quick reaction to changing conditions;
  • analytics for optimization of internal logistics in hospitals;
  • safety increase due to gradual improvement in flow management capabilities.

Indoor Navigation for Hospital Staff

Emergency situations may occur in an instant, as a result, they require timely informed actions. Emergency planning for staff is vital, especially in healthcare faclities. Navigine hospital positioning solution optimizes workflow to secure efficient route planning for all staff members. To meet these requirements and improve clinical processes, we have developed a hospital staff tracking system.

  • Features:
  • interactive maps of hospital campuses with key elements and assets marked;
  • wayfinding app for hospitals features the construction of routes to any asset according to work assignments;
  • workplace health management;
  • real-time navigation with the list of assignments;
  • location based notifications regarding changing assignments.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time staff navigation and corrections of daily assignments;
  • the comprehensive medical tracking system to monitor and distribute staff workload;
  • optimization of the internal logistics processes.

Healthcare Asset Tracking System

Lost and stolen equipment result in great costs for the healthcare industry. In millions of dollars each year actually. Equipment tracking is a big challenge due to a countless physical assets. Navigine Hospital asset tracking system helps to track real-time availability of the equipment that resulsts in operational excellence.

  • Features:
  • real-time healthcare asset tracking;
  • hospital bed tracking system;
  • creation and customization of analytical reports by time, tracked objects, or processes;
  • aggregation of data on logistics process inefficiencies;
  • precise indoor positioning for healthcare.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time hospital positioning of all valuable and business-critical equipment;
  • analytics for optimization of logistics processes inside hospitals;
  • operational efficiency increases due to gradual improvement in asset management.
