November 4, 2016, Summit, NJ – Atlantic Health System and Overlook Medical Center announced today the launch of “Take Me There - Overlook,” an innovative mobile app that helps patients and their families to easily navigate throughout the hospital.
“Take Me There - Overlook also provides an all-screens solution, similar to what Google has,” says Gerard Durney, director of Operations at Overlook Medical Center. “With the app, users can leverage maps and routes on the Internet or kiosks in addition to navigation to plan their visits. They can also print personalized maps and directions.”
Take Me There - Overlook is powered by Connexient and its MediNav Digital Wayfinding solution that delivers the world’s most sophisticated indoor navigation system. To enhance the patient experience, it includes advanced features, such as a Parking Planner which navigates users to the best parking location based on their appointment location inside the facility, and soon-to-be implemented My Car Saver, which saves the user’s parking location and will navigate them back to their car when they are finished with their appointment or visit.
“Patients and visitors can be very anxious when they enter a hospital,” says Durney. “It can be difficult to remember directions. This patient-focused feature is one of the many services we have in place to help patients find their way, be on time, and, hopefully, be more relaxed.”
Overlook Medical Center has approximately 285,500 outpatient visits and 99,000 emergency visits annually, and close to 25,000 admissions each year. Overlook Medical Center is the only hospital in New Jersey named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for General Surgery™ in 2017 and to be recognized among the top 5% in the Nation for both Neurosciences and Treatment of Stroke in 2017 by Healthgrades®.
Take Me There – Overlook is available for free on the App Store and Google play. Learn more >
