UCI Health to integrate mobile patient navigation app with Epic

Orange, Calif.-based UCI Health partnered with information technology company Connexient to add its indoor mapping and navigation software to the health system's Epic MyChart mobile app.

Connexient's software provides turn-by-turn indoor navigation with features such as "find my car" and "parking planner." By adding it to the Epic MyChart app, patients can access their health information including lab results, appointment information and medications as well as directions to navigate around the hospital on a single platform.

"We are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve the patient experience," said Sriram Bharadwaj, senior applications director at UCI Health Information Services. "Connexient's wayfinding technology enables us to build upon our digital platform while creating a seamless integration with our EMR system."

UCI Health is the clinical enterprise of the University of California, Irvine. It comprises the 417-bed, Orange, Calif.-based UCI Medical Center as well as primary and specialty care offices.
