Phunware Inc (NASDAQ: PHUN) has added two pediatric healthcare customers in Alabama and Florida for their digital front door deployments on mobile, the company said Monday.

The company said its Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform helps patients and clinicians demystify the healthcare journey for both families and staff. MaaS enables feature-rich mobile application solutions for healthcare providers so that they can better engage their patients across a continuum of care while optimizing both operational and staff efficiencies, lowering costs and boosting revenue. 

Platform integrations with Electronic Health Records (EHRs) such as Epic and Cerner, and telehealth service providers such as Amwell, completely eliminate the pain of having to manage dozens of point solutions while simultaneously offering patients and families a far more simplistic, cohesive and integrated healthcare experience.

“Our MaaS healthcare solutions are currently deployed with leading healthcare organizations across nearly 70 million square feet of hospitals, clinics and medical facilities here in the United States,” said CEO Alan Knitowski in a statement. 

“We are extremely excited to add an additional 5 million square feet of pediatric-specific healthcare coverage on mobile, including one of the only 35 Level 1 pediatric trauma centers in the country.”

The company said a key competitive market differentiator for customers with MaaS is the ability to deliver a true digital front door through its patented Location-Based Services software and beacon management solution. 

These native, mobile-first capabilities 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. They’re not only ADA compliant, addressing the needs of anyone who is visually impaired, hearing impaired or wheelchair-bound, but also transition seamlessly between indoor and outdoor environments.

The Austin, Texas-based company’s stock closed up 11.9% to $0.92 a share in New York.
