Rush integrates indoor GPS, Epic patient portal into MyRush patient app

Chicago-based Rush University Medical Center is adding indoor navigation to its patient app, dubbed MyRush.

MyRush is powered by MyChart, Epic's patient portal system. Through the app, patients can access information such as lab results and immunization history, along with having the option to schedule future appointments from their mobile device.

Rush is now adding to the app by integrating indoor navigation features from patient engagement company Connexient. Connexient's MediNav tool provides patients with turn-by-turn navigation within the hospital.

"Healthcare consumers today … expect convenience and digital assistance throughout their patient journey," said Shafiq Rab, MD, CIO of Rush. "By weaving together indoor navigation and location services with MyChart's capabilities, we are providing the patient with the easy to use tools to not only find their way to appointments, but to be their own advocates upon arrival."
