CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LogicJunction, a premier provider of healthcare-focused indoor navigation platforms, is thrilled to announce the launch of its wayfinding technology at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center, including the system’s recently completed Carol Jenkins Barnett Pavilion for Women and Children.
The comprehensive wayfinding system includes innovative wayfinding technologies that deliver easy-to-follow directions and real-time information to patients, families, and guests whether they are at home, at the hospital, or on a smartphone via the “LRH GO” mobile app.
The mobile app, available on iTunes and Google Play, provides patients and caregivers turn-by-turn directions throughout the hospital using a blue dot, similar to GPS. The Medical Center is the second Florida hospital to use LogicJunction’s geomagnetic-enabled app, developed in partnership with IndoorAtlas. The innovative location-based technology replaces the need for extensive hardware to provide highly accurate positioning indoors. In addition to navigation, the app allows users to pin frequent locations, view hospital events, and receive location-based notifications. Non-mobile users can access interactive directions and maps found within Patient & Visitor information on the Medical Center’s website.
“Technology has the power to connect people in innovative and practical ways,” said Stacy Bolton, Lakeland Regional Health Associate Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “We are so pleased to offer our patients and families this new tool to make access to healthcare on our Medical Center more convenient.”
Since their introduction in mid-June, hundreds of visitors already have taken advantage of LogicJunction’s touch-screen kiosks to assist with navigating the Medical Center’s 1.6M square foot campus.
“We’re excited to be able to offer this innovative wayfinding system to Lakeland Regional Health and its community of users,” said LogicJunction Chief Product Officer Mike Drozda. “Our goal is to offer easy-to-follow directions to improve indoor navigation and optimize patient experience at world-class hospitals like Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center.”

With a suite of well-established navigation platforms, including a state-of-the-art mobile app that fuses Geomagnetic location-based data with Wi-Fi and BLE data, LogicJunction delivers a scalable and cost-saving system that enhances indoor experience.
