Healthcare facilities are often large buildings, where visitors can find it very difficult and stressful to find their way, whether they come for an appointment or to visit someone. Navigating a hospital can be very challenging because of confusing layouts, so poor wayfinding contributes to patients' and visitors' stress.

Moreover, hospitals are often in a state of flux, which damages their workflow management. In this situation, it is very easy to lose valuable equipment which results in great costs for the healthcare industry.

At Navigine we see these challenges and develop an unique platform based on the technologies of Indoor Positioning and RTLS, suitable to each and every task healthcare facilities face every day. Our platform is focused on eradicating all challenges by implementing technologies of indoor hospital positioning, navigation, and asset tracking.

wayfinding app for hospitals
Increase patient satisfaction​
Let patients easily find the way to the rooms where they have an appointment. The system will navigate patients through often overcrowded healthcare facilities, greatly improving patients’ experience and optimizing doctors’ time management
Get hold of valuables​
Optimize the hospital’s asset management by deploying a tracking platform. With asset tracking, hospital staff can easily monitor the location of all valuable equipment, reducing time spent on searching them by 10 minutes​
Solve operational challenges
Staff can spend more time providing care for patients, rather than searching for equipment and materials by using a real-time analytics platform​
Ensure social distancing​
Prevent risk groups from interacting with each other. Data obtained by implementing indoor positioning system for healthcare institutions can help to easily track the movements of staff and visitors​

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 the real-time availability of the equipment that resulsts in operational optimization.

See how the tracking system works with our demo.

  • Features:
  • real-time healthcare asset tracking (for example, wheelchair 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 hospital positioning.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time hospital positioning of all valuable and business-critical equipment
    operational efficiency increases due to gradual improvement in asset management
    analytics for optimization of logistics processes inside hospitals

Indoor Traffic Monitoring

It is critical to develop 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 the patient's concentration.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time monitoring of patient traffic to ensure a quick reaction to changing conditions;
    safety increase due to gradual improvement in flow management capabilities
    analytics for optimization of internal logistics in hospitals;

Indoor Navigation for Hospital Staff

Emergency situations may occur in an instant, and as a result, they require timely informed actions. Emergency planning for staff is vital, especially in healthcare facilities. 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;
  • hospital navigation app features the construction of routes to any asset according to work assignments;
  • workplace health management;
  • real-time hospital navigation with the list of assignments;
  • location based notifications regarding changing assignments.
  • Expected benefits:
  • real-time staff navigation and corrections of daily assignments
    optimization of internal logistics processes
    the comprehensive medical tracking system to monitor and distribute staff workload
