There’s an app for that isn’t just an advertising slogan or promise. More than likely, it’s a fact. According to Statista.com, in 2016 alone, the number of mobile app downloads worldwide were 149.3 billion. By anyone’s standards, that’s a lot of apps and a lot of people using them.
A couple of years ago, Kaleida Health entered the app revolution and developed the MyKaleida app to improve the patient, visitor and even staff experience.
MyKaleida offers users a wealth of information right at their fingertips. It provides an easy way to find information and contacts for patient and visitor amenities such as:
- Find Your Way
- Paying Bills
- Shuttle Service
- Vending Machines
- Visiting Hours
- TV Guide
- Valet Services
One of the most popular functions of the app is the Find Your Way section, which is currently available exclusively at Oishei Children’s Hospital and Conventus. Find Your Way provides an easy-to-use wayfinding experience, guiding you from where you are in the hospital or Outpatient Center to your desired destination, utilizing an indoor positioning system. Just like GPS for driving directions, Find Your Way will show you the best path to follow to get where you want to go.
If you are visiting Oishei Children’s Hospital or Conventus, don’t forget to download the MyKaleida app from the Google Play and Apple app stores. It’s sure to make your visit a whole lot smoother.
