Phunware Announces MaaS Licensing Win with Leading Pediatric Hospital
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 that it has closed another Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform licensing win for a patient-centric digital front door mobile application portfolio with one of the nation’s leading pediatric hospitals (the “Customer”).
As one of the largest freestanding pediatric medical centers in the United States, digital transformation and innovation is a cornerstone of the Customer’s strategy to enhance their patient and visitor experience, all while optimizing the utilization of their available resources for improved financial performance and better clinical outcomes.
“A comprehensive mobile strategy is paramount to efficiently and effectively managing the continuum of care, especially in a healthcare industry that is wrestling with challenges compounded by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “We have invested more than $100 million in MaaS to give organizations like these a crucial competitive advantage when it comes to driving their digital transformation initiatives and ensuring they see a return on their healthcare investments and outcomes, in this case with children and their parents.”
Phunware can fast-track the deployment of a mobile solution to help any healthcare system establish a digital front door or implement a solution to support current 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. Customers who license MaaS for their digital front door may also benefit from Phunware’s patented Location Based Services software and Beacon Maintenance 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 uses a wheelchair, but also transitions seamlessly between indoor and outdoor environments.
Phunware’s digital front door not only enables feature-rich mobile application solutions for healthcare providers, but it also offers integrations with Electronic Health Records (EHRs) such as Epic and Cerner, as well as telehealth service providers such as Teledoc and Amwell. This holistic approach eliminates the pain of managing dozens of point solutions while simultaneously offering staff, patients and visitors a far more simplistic, cohesive and integrated healthcare experience. Additional capabilities include, but are not limited to:
- Mobile engagement for contextual notifications, including appointment reminders
- Real-time, “blue dot” indoor positioning, including mapping, navigation and wayfinding
- Beacon Maintenance to ensure optimal performance of all Location Based Services
- Epic MyChart integration with Face ID biometric login medical record access
- Prescription management with Teledoc and E-Visit functionality
- Staff directory
