Presidio’s expanded deployment of Phunware’s MaaS platform at BHSF enables even more patients, staff members and visitors to seamlessly engage with critical healthcare functions and navigate across an additional 3.1 million square feet of medical facilities, bringing the total MaaS LBS coverage to 6.3 million square feet and the total contract value to more than $1 million. Phunware’s patented MaaS LBS software and beacon maintenance solution delivers proximity, sub one-second, real-time blue dot indoor positioning, navigation and wayfinding functionality across BHSF campuses and facilities while simplifying and streamlining the underlying beacon deployment and management for both BHSF facility staff and administrators. The software is not only ADA compliant, addressing the needs of anyone who is visually impaired, hearing impaired or wheelchair bound, but it also transitions seamlessly between indoor and outdoor environments as well.
“Baptist Health South Florida’s leadership is further raising the bar for digital transformation in healthcare, truly tech-enabling the entire patient experience at their facilities,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “We are thrilled to support a channel partner like Presidio, who is committed to ensuring that BHSF is able to effectively implement cutting-edge technology standardized on our MaaS LBS software and mobile infrastructure.”
