Mercy Health deploys 'indoor GPS' at Cincinnati hospital

Cincinnati-based Mercy Health launched a GPS-style app at The Jewish Hospital, also in Cincinnati.

The indoor navigation solution, called the "Right This Way" app, runs on Connexient's MediNav platform. The app aims to help patients and visitors find their way around the hospital with campuswide maps and turn-by-turn directions.

"We're always looking to improve the experience of both our patients and visitors," said Pat Davis-Hagens, president and CEO of Mercy Health Central Market. "We launched the app to guide you to the department or room you want to visit, remember where you parked and help reduce missed or late appointments."

The app is available on smartphones, Mercy Health's website and kiosks in The Jewish Hospital.
