Wayfinding for Hospitals
According to Deloitte Digital, 30% of first-time visitors get confused and lost in hospitals.
In the US, cost-estimate analysis of Emory University Hospital found that wayfinding problems cost over $200,000 annually.
In the UK, missed outpatient appointments cost the NHS over £7 billion a year, and doctors attribute a significant fraction of this to navigation problems.
Why consider mobile apps?
Existing signage and physical wayfinding solutions aren’t working.
That’s why 50% of patients in NHS hospitals have trouble getting where they need to be.
Mobile maps with a blue dot have become the standard outdoors. 97% of 18-14 year olds would feel stressed if their sat nav or map app stopped working. A generation of young people are bringing this expectation indoors.
A map without a blue dot is just a map. Using an indoor positioning system to add a blue dot results in a navigation solution that will help patients get to their appointments on time.
