Hospitals are ultimately a stress-ridden place. Even if you’ve been to the facility many times, the fear of what to anticipate during your visit can be difficult.
Here are four ways to reduce stress for a hospital visit:
- Plan your parking before you go. Whether you’re looking for valet parking, handicapped parking, or just want to make sure you can find the nearest parking without worrying, there’s an easy way to do that. With LogicJunction’s web-based solution, all you need to do is enter the location of your appointment, what type of parking you prefer, and boom- you’re set up for the nearest parking. No more worrying about finding parking, navigating construction, or making sure your parking spot is as close as possible to your appointment.
- Easily check in upon arrival. What do you do when you get to your appointment and there’s no one at the information desk? LogicJunction’s technology can be integrated with appointment information and include features like automatic check-in when you enter the hospital, giving you some extra breathing room.
- Find walking directions within the hospital. Hospital signage gives you visual cues to find your way, but interpretation is subjective and can often result in more confusion. Look for your hospital’s digital solution that supplements signage and can help you find interactive walking directions to your appointment. Usually links to interactive directions are found within the Patient & Visitor’s or Location & Directions section of your hospital’s website, where you can either print, email, or text directions for your upcoming visit. When you arrive at the hospital, you can use the kiosk to determine your location and print or email directions.
Lastly, some hospitals are adding interactive directions to their mobile apps or have specific hospital directional apps. These apps provide an experience similar to GPS navigation in your car, where you’ll be guided by a blue dot and provided turn-by-turn directions upon entering the facility.
All thanks to LogicJunction’s ability to give the best navigation possible.
- Find food or amenities. Were you rushed to make it to your appointment and forgot a snack or a coffee? You know there’s a coffee shop somewhere in the hospital….but how do you get there? And how do you get there without arriving late to your appointment? Many hospitals include amenities just like this in their directories for just this reason. Use the kiosk, the link to interactive directions on their website, or mobile app to find the nearest coffee shop
