UAB Medicine launches patient navigation app

University of Alabama at Birmingham Medicine introduced UAB Medicine Wayfinder, a patient navigation application.

The app, which is available on mobile devices and desktops, utilizes the MediNavTM Navigator Edition 2.0 wayfinding system from Connexient. It offers indoor and outdoor, step-by-step directions as well as voice guidance and visual references. It also offers a directory of healthcare providers. The app is powered by Bluetooth LE Beacon technology.

The app covers UAB Medicine's main campus, with both indoor and outdoor directions, and outdoor directions to outlying clinics and UAB Hospital-Highlands in Birmingham. It also maps the locations of businesses near the UAB Medicine campus, such as banks and gas stations.
