Forward Advantage & MapsPeople: Improving the patient experience

Key benefits

Hospital visits can be linked with both fear and anxiety. In addition, navigating the endless and almost identical hospital halls and corridors is often difficult, leading to even more frustration for patients and visitors alike.

That’s why MapsPeople and Forward Advantage have partnered to help hospitals grow and expand their patient experience journey. By integrating the MapsIndoors dynamic mapping technology into Forward Advantage's PXMobile app platform, hospitals have a powerful solution to provide a stress-free experience for patients and visitors.

Together, Forward Advantage and MapsPeople:

Improve the experience for patients and visitors

  • Navigate seamlessly from outside the hospital and all the way into a specific hospital area
  • Make it easier for visitors and patients to locate and find the more optimal route to specific areas, providers or common destinations like the cafeteria or restrooms

Improve the use of hospital and staff resources

  • Hospital staff members spend hours of valuable time giving people directions
  • Seamless indoor to outdoor navigation can reduce the hidden cost of directing people and free up important resources

Designed to integrate with any hospital’s EHR patient portal, PXMobile delivers a hospital-branded mobile app experience enabling patients to seamlessly access information in support of their care. Along with access to health libraries and third-party engagement applications, PXMobile quickly and affordably enables hospitals and healthcare organizations of all sizes to deliver a robust, user-friendly, branded experience to its patient population. MapsIndoors easily integrates with the PXMobile app platform and can be integrated with any mobile app platform, website, information kiosks and digital signage. Through the multi-platform integration, you ensure that all patients, visitors and staff are provided with an easy-to-use hospital wayfinding solution.
