NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Connexient, the healthcare leader in digital wayfinding and indoor GPS announced today double-digit growth in 2018, adding multiple marquee health system clients to its customer base. Connexient's MediNav™ is the most advanced digital wayfinding and indoor navigation solution available for hospitals and healthcare networks.
This year-over-year growth is due in part to the strong demand for a more seamless, digitally enabled, customer-oriented Patient Experience. According to David Betts, Principal in Deloittte Consulting's Healthcare practice, "the consumerization of care is the number one healthcare IT trend of 2019. Patient and family are firmly in the center now and that's driving a lot of disruption. We've seen an acceleration of consumers running out of patience with the challenges they have engaging with the system."
In 2018, Connexient exceeded its growth goals and continued to enhance its market leadership position by achieving the following milestones:
New Connexient clients in 2018 include the following: Hackensack Meridian Health Jersey Shore Hospital, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Mission Health System, Good Samaritan Hospital, St. Joseph/Candler Health System and Rush University Medical Center. The company continues to expand within its existing base of major clients including: National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinic, UAB Medicine, BayCare Health System, St. Joseph/Providence Health System, Memorial Hermann, Froedtert Hospital, WMC Health, RWJBarnabus, Atlantic Health System and more.
"We ended 2018 on a very positive note with 60 hospitals now under contract, and a total square footage of 70 million square feet mapped," said Connexient CEO and Co-founder, Mark Green. "We enter 2019 with a very robust pipeline. There is significant client interest in our new 'MediNav™ for MyChart™' module.
