Phunware Inc (NASDAQ:PHUN) has announced a partnership with IT company Sirius Computer Solutions, with the goal of providing health systems across the country with what it calls “digital front door” mobile solutions.
Sirius helps its healthcare, retail and government clients beef up their security with technology-based offerings for IT strategy, security, business innovation, cloud and managed services, the company said.
“Sirius is committed to helping our clients transform their business and remain agile by providing the solutions and services they need to succeed in today’s fast-paced market,” Sirius Director of Strategic Initiative in Healthcare Rachel Weissberg said in a statement. “We look forward to working with Phunware to drive digital transformation in healthcare and bring its extensive and comprehensive digital front door mobile solutions to clients.”
Phunware’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform allows its customers to better engage and monetize its mobile audience. Its location-based services and mobile engagement software can be used to create on-premises and mobile experiences in healthcare, retail, hospitality, media, politics and more.
The two companies plan to use their combined experience in healthcare, including Phunware’s existing Healthcare Solution on mobile, to drive patient engagement, optimize operational efficiencies and workflows, and enhance security.
“Phunware is committed to aligning with industry leaders like Sirius to ensure that our mobile solutions can be easily integrated and deployed by the world’s top technology companies,” Phunware COO Randall Crowder said. “Together, Phunware and Sirius are positioned to transform the healthcare experience through services and technologies that empower patients, visitors and staff in a mobile-first world.”
The Ausin-based company’s digital front door helps patients navigate hospital facilities, access patient portals and connect with physicians, all in a unified app.
