How Will Spreo’s Wayfinding Solution Integrate with Our Hospital App?

By | Digital Wayfinding, Healthcare, Indoor Wayfinding

SPREO’s mobile solution increases patient and visitors’ positive impressions of your hospital while decreasing stress and anxiety. It reduces staff interruptions while increasing on-time arrivals for appointments.

However, one of the questions we frequently hear from hospital executives involves concerns about how Spreo will integrate with their current hospital app.

 

We find that hospitals typically fall into one of three categories with regard to this question.

  1. They have an excellent, current, content-driven app that engages their patients and families.
  2. They have an app that was designed a couple of years ago and is already outdated and underutilized. They really need a new app but it is not in their budget.
  3. They do not have an app yet but are moving in this direction.

 

We will address all three situations here.

Already Have an Excellent App

The Spreo SDK integrates our software stack into existing apps to enable location-based features for our clients and their development agencies. This is a seamless process that causes no disruption to the existing app and is a powerful addition to what is offered.

 

Need a New App

For hospitals that have an outdated app, this is a way to solve both problems. Our comprehensive solution is not just a step-by-step, blue dot indoor navigation tool in your patient’s hands. It is also a powerful content management system (CMS), empowering your ability to develop content and create a current, customized, user-friendly app, improving the patient experience.

 

Do Not Have an App

Many of our clients know they need to offer an app to their patients and families and are in the planning stages. Our development team is extremely nimble and can accommodate and integrate your plans. This includes everything from patient education, patient portals, multiple campus information, nearby pharmacies, feedback, and links to your website and social media.

In summary, our indoor wayfinding solution is usually just one feature in our clients’ custom app. While we are happy to provide the simple navigation app, we can meet your needs, whatever they may be when it comes to your app.

Wayfinding is a strange word.

By | Digital Wayfinding, Indoor Positioning Technology

Wayfinding is a strange word. It’s  really an abbreviation for “finding your way.” It is used to describe systems that help you to find your way through a facility or venue using signage and directional information. It is as much an art as it is a science.

Wayfinding systems are expected to successfully direct people in widely differing circumstances and locations. Wayfinding must take into account how people read and process information, where they instinctively look for signs and how they interpret arrows. It must try to do that despite widely varying literacy levels, language barriers and disabilities of the people who will be attempting to follow the directions.

You may no longer notice it, but wayfinding moves you from the door of your favorite  coffee shop to ordering to pick up. You also depend upon it to move you successfully through airports the size of small cities, from parking to the ticket counter to the gate. Wayfinding also moves you through hospitals, whether you are arriving calmly for a doctor’s appointment or are terrified and rushing to find an injured loved one in the emergency room. These are just some of the complex circumstances under which wayfinding must hold up. Read More
