Jibestream Allies with Vecna to Improve the Patient Experience with Intelligent Wayfinding

Jibestream, a thought leader in developing wayfinding platforms for healthcare facilities and other major public venues, and Vecna, an innovator in patient engagement solutions, today announced a strategic partnership that guides patients throughout the entire patient engagement continuum from pre-registration to on-site location wayfinding.

Jibestream’s NovoMap integrates with Vecna’s Patient Information Exchange platform to allow patients to seamlessly check-in for appointments from home, scan a barcode for express check-in on-site, and access interactive maps via mobile or on-site touchscreen devices to navigate complex healthcare facilities with ease.

“Our Patient Information Exchange platform introduces a complete user experience for the patient to navigate the administrative, financial, and clinical aspects of their health, both online and on-site,” says Ben Bau, VP and General Manager of Patient Self-Service Solutions at Vecna. “Now, patients will benefit from that same user interface to navigate the physical environment which we expect will positively impact patient satisfaction.”

“With Vecna’s Patient Information Exchange platform, NovoMap will guide patients to their respective locations, reducing the number of delayed or missed appointments,” says Chris Wiegand, CEO of Jibestream. “Improving hospital effectiveness while also reducing the time devoted by hospital staff to help patients navigate hallways and floors, will support Lean management and increase patient satisfaction scores.”
