LogicJunction’s Comprehensive Navigation System Launches at Lakeland Regional Health
The ‘LRH GO’ mobile app uses geomagnetic-enabled technology to improve navigation for patients and families.
CLEVELAND- LogicJunction, a premier provider of healthcare-focused indoor navigation platforms, is thrilled to announce the launch of its wayfinding technology at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center, including the facility’s recently completed Carol Jenkins Barnett Pavilion for Women and Children.
The comprehensive wayfinding system includes innovative technologies that deliver simple directions and real-time information to patients, families, and guests whether they are at home or on the go via the ‘LRH GO’ mobile app or the online version.
The mobile app provides users turn-by-turn directions throughout the hospital using a blue dot, similar to GPS. The Medical Center is the second Florida hospital to use LogicJunction’s geomagnetic-enabled app, which was developed in partnership with IndoorAtlas. The innovative location-based technology provides highly accurate indoor positioning and replaces the need for extensive hardware. In addition to navigation, the app allows users to pin frequent locations, view hospital events, and receive location-based notifications. Users can also access interactive directions and maps found within patient and visitor information on the hospital’s website.
“Technology has the power to connect people in innovative and practical ways,” said Stacy Bolton, Lakeland Regional Health Associate Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “We are so pleased to offer our patients and families this new tool to make access to healthcare on our Medical Center more convenient.”
Since introducing touchscreen kiosks in mid-June, hundreds of visitors already have taken advantage of the technology to assist with navigating the hospital’s 1.6 million square foot campus.
“We’re excited to be able to offer this innovative wayfinding system to Lakeland Regional Health and its community of users,” said LogicJunction’s Chief Product Officer Mike Drozda. “Our goal is to offer easy-to-follow directions to improve indoor navigation and optimize patient experience at world-class hospitals like Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center.”
LRH GO can be downloaded from the Apple store or the Google Play store. Interactive directions can also be accessed via the hospital’s patient and visitor information on their website or here.
LogicJunction is a Cleveland-based technology solutions provider specializing in indoor navigation systems. With a suite of well-established navigation platforms, including a state-of-the-art mobile app that fuses geomagnetic location-based data with Wi-Fi and BLE data, LogicJunction delivers a scalable and cost-saving system that enhances indoor experience.
