Hackensack University Medical Center and Connexient Partner to Drive Innovation, Transformation and Enterprise ROI With Indoor Navigation, Location-Based Services and Google's Project Tango

NEW YORK, and HACKENSACK, N.J., Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Connexient and Hackensack University Medical Center (HackensackUMC), based in Hackensack, NJ, announced today a partnership to drive innovation, transformation and Enterprise ROI in Healthcare that will encompass two tracks:

  1. an Enterprise deployment of MediNavTM Navigator Edition 2.0 to implement an innovative "Airline check-in model" that will greatly enhance patient experience while reducing missed or late appointment and increasing operational efficiency for HackensackUMC; and
  2. a collaboration to develop pioneering Indoor Navigation and Augmented Reality features on Google's revolutionary Project Tango platform.

Powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacons and sophisticated handset sensor fusion technology, MediNavTM Navigator v. 2.0 features the world's most advanced, true turn-by-turn indoor navigation and rich location-based features that users have come to expect from Google or Apple in the "outdoor" world.  HackensackUMC will leverage the Connexient API + SDK to integrate MediNav maps, routing, directions and navigation into the new HackensackUMC mobile app patient engagement mobile application, Web site and patient portal.

A focal point for Connexient and HackensackUMC will be to develop and pioneer an innovative "Airline Check-in Model" for patient experience where digital wayfinding,navigation and location services are integrated with appointment scheduling and patient flow solutions. When fully deployed, this model will bring multiple benefits to HackensackUMC and its patients:

  1. enhance patient experience, making it easy to get to where the patient or visitor wants to go;
  2. minimize the stress of patients and visitors face in navigating a large, complex facility;
  3. reduce missed or late appointments – capturing lost revenue; and
  4. optimize resource utilization by improving enterprise visibility of inbound appointments.

Connexient and HackensackUMC will partner in a second track to develop first a prototype and then pilot a mobile application built on Google's revolutionary Project Tango platform with two vectors:

  1. Indoor Navigation. Applying Tango as an actual solution for indoor "positioning" and navigation.
  2. Augmented Reality. Leveraging Tango unique ability to "see the world as humans do" for a variety of Augmented Reality use cases for navigating and interacting with physical environments.

Dr. Shafiq Rab, HackensackUMC's Vice President and Chief Information Officer stated, "At Hackensack University Medical Center, we are dedicated to healthcare transformation and continuous improvement of the patient experience. We see Indoor Navigation and Location-based Services as a key to solving the challenges patients, visitors – and even team members – face in getting through a large, complex facility such as ours. Our work together with Google's Project Tango will further push this envelope of innovation with a truly revolutionary leap forward in how mobile devices can understand and interact with the world around them."

"Our partnership with HackensackUMC is an extraordinary moment and milestone for our company," commented Mark Green, Connexient CEO and Co-Founder. "In Dr. Rab and HackensackUMC, we have found a shared philosophy and commitment to using digital technology not just to innovate, but to create breakthrough improvements that deliver real value to users and organizations. We are confident that our collaboration will do just that for HackensackUMC and set a new bar for the industry in the area of Indoor Navigation and Location-based Services."
