SARASOTA, Fla. – Sarasota Memorial Health Care System has launched an indoor wayfinding app that uses global positioning technology. Developed by software company LogicJunction in partnership with IndoorAtlas, the hospital’s SMH Wayfinder app uses the digital compass and sensors inside smart phones and the magnetic footprint found inside buildings to help people pinpoint their exact location indoors and easily find their way around the multi-level towers on its 1.5 million square-foot main campus. “As technology evolves and improves, this is another tool we can offer to ease anxiety and help people get to where they need to go,” said David Verinder, CEO of Sarasota Memorial, in a statement. SMH also worked with LogicJunction recently to install touchscreen kiosks in its lobbies to help direct people to various locations and points of interest on its main campus. Visitors can print, email or text themselves maps and directions directly from the kiosk. The health system also developed an informational app to help people locate SMH doctors and services throughout the region, as well as personal health apps to help women track pregnancy milestones and allow clinicians to monitor patients.
