Why Hospital Mobile Apps with Wayfinding are Becoming a Necessity
Today’s healthcare champions patient engagement. Read this whitepaper on how to keep pace with the growing desire for mobile apps to drive patient loyalty.
Mobile phones have come a long way since the first Motorola cell phone in 1973. The first model was 9 inches long, over 2.5 pounds, and almost $4,000. Very few people owned one, but fast-forward to today and you rarely see anyone without a mobile phone in hand, and it is usually a smartphone.
There has been astounding smartphone growth, from 2% in 2005 to 27% in 2010, to 75% in 2015.¹
According to Pew Research, smartphones are a key entry point to the online world.² Everything has gone mobile! It’s how Americans stay connected, with phone calls, social networking and also navigation.
Mobile is nearly everywhere, however healthcare is underserved:
- There is a lack of information when patients need it most
- Navigation stops at the front door of the hospital
- No appointment reminders or alerts
- No communication of the hospitals services and amenities
- No connection with the health system or physicians
Today’s healthcare is all about patient engagement. The marketplace is competitive and every healthcare organization is jockeying for an advantage.
