Phunware Inc’s (NASDAQ: PHUN) mobile Pandemic Response Solution for the healthcare industry, backed by the power of its Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform, has been deployed in New York.
In a statement Monday, the company said its mobile healthcare solution was launched at one of the largest teaching hospitals in the US. The system will not only enhance the patient experience but also address critical challenges clinicians now face as they respond to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Phunware said this is the first deployment of its pandemic response solution for healthcare for an existing customer since it announced the rollout on April 7.
The Austin, Texas-based company noted that for the teaching hospital, “digital transformation and innovation is a cornerstone of (its) strategy to ensure patient safety, provide access to lifesaving care and optimize the utilization of all available resources.”
Phunware said it can deploy a native mobile application within days, for both iOS and Android, to support pandemic response efforts.
Its Location Based Services offer healthcare workers access to facility-wide navigation capabilities, on-site mobile directories and push notifications to better coordinate patients, as well as clinicians, who are sometimes working at unfamiliar facilities due to capacity and resource demands brought on by COVID-19.
“We owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women working tirelessly in response to the COVID-19 crisis,” said Randall Crowder, COO of Phunware.
“We are honored to support their efforts with our mobile platform to help patients and clinicians not only better understand and utilize what resources are available, but also how to locate and navigate to them.”
