Phunware Launches Mobile Healthcare Solution for Integrated Health System in New York to Address COVID-19 Challenges

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, announced today the deployment of Phunware’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform to provide an integrated health system in New York (the “Customer”) with its mobile healthcare solution to not only enhance the patient experience, but also to address critical challenges clinicians now face in responding to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. This is the Company’s first deployment of its pandemic response solution for healthcare to an existing Phunware customer since its original announcement on April 7th.

As one of the largest teaching hospitals in the United States, digital transformation and innovation is a cornerstone of this Customer’s strategy to ensure patient safety, provide access to lifesaving care and optimize the utilization of all available resources. With Phunware’s Location Based Services, healthcare workers benefit from access to facility-wide navigation capabilities, on-site mobile directories and push notifications to better coordinate patients, as well as clinicians, who are sometimes working at unfamiliar facilities due to capacity and resource demands brought on by COVID-19.

“We owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women working tirelessly in response to the COVID-19 crisis,” said Randall Crowder, COO of Phunware. “We are honored to support their efforts with our mobile platform to help patients and clinicians not only better understand and utilize what resources are available, but also how to locate and navigate to them.”

In the matter of days, Phunware can deploy a mobile solution to help any healthcare system establish a digital front door or coordinate their pandemic response efforts. These native mobile applications on iOS and Android provide a unique software layer that enables healthcare organizations to access all of Phunware’s features and capabilities and drive better engagement. They also leverage Phunware’s patented Location Based Services software and beacon management solution to deliver proximity, sub one-second real-time blue dot indoor positioning, navigation and wayfinding functionality across any campus or facility while simplifying and streamlining the underlying beacon deployment and management for both the facility staff and administrators alike. These mobile solutions are not only ADA compliant, addressing the needs of anyone who is visually impaired, hearing impaired or wheelchair bound, but also transition seamlessly between indoor and outdoor environments.
