Indoor GPS and Mapping Platform for Hospitals

Integrating a dynamic mapping platform, SPREO improves workflow, efficiency, and patient satisfaction.

Indoor Positioning and Asset Tracking Software for Hospitals

SPREO’s Indoor Mapping and Indoor Positioning System (IPS) platform is deployed in large healthcare campuses to improve the experience for both healthcare providers and healthcare recipients. The platform is accessed through touch screen kiosks, web browsers, mobile apps, and chat-bots, and  provides features such as asset tracking, indoor navigation/wayfinding, and integration with electronic health record providers such as Epic Systems, and RTLS providers such as Centrak.

SPREO’s mapping technology helps in the complexities of managing multi-building, multi-floor hospital campuses. Facility managers can better understand how their facilities are being utilized, staff are not interrupted with constant directional inquiries, and kiosks help users gather information such as directories, floor maps, parking facilities, lists of local “near me” amenities, and asset tracking.

Epic Integration

The integration of Epic System and SPREO’s mapping platform allows healthcare providers to improve patient experience. Through tools such as in-app push-notifications, users can receive personalized information specifically relevant to their appointments. This can include an all-inclusive wayfinding experience centered on a user’s visit:

  • Users can navigate from home to the campus, and specifically to the parking lot nearest to the user’s destination inside the venue.
  • A user’s entire visit can be mapped to include multiple destinations (i.e. check-in area, appointment location, cafeteria, etc.)
  • A user’s experience can be augmented once on campus with the utilization of proximity-based push-notifications.

SPREO integrates at various data points with the popular Epic MyChart system. The SPREO platform serves as the Single Source of Truth (SSOT) for many aspects of the Epic MyChart application:

  • Clients can update their facility details through SPREO’s Content Management System (CMS) and, as the SSOT, SPREO ensures that data updates are comprehensively distributed to all database constituents within an overall data architecture.
  • Healthcare practitioners have access to digital representation of room usage and patient flow that is obtained through a synthesis of data extracted from Real Time Location Services (RTLS) and hospital records.

Convenient Web Browser

The Web Browser interface enables a setting in which users can minimize confusion by digitally exploring the hospital venue. Features for this include:

  • Share your exact Real Time Location
  • Points of interest search
  • Wayfinding paths will be specific to the user (staff-only areas will be avoided for patient users)
  • Web Interface can be accessed on any device without installing an application

Pathways and Routing

SPREO’s pathways and routing within a hospital can be adjusted for the different types of users navigating through the facility. SPREO’s platform has the capability to differentiate routes for patients, guests and employees. SPREO will then generate a pathway that will be best suited for each respective user. Furthermore, SPREO has the ability to make routes specifically for handicapped users by avoiding stairs in the generated pathways.
