OVERVIEW
Dignity Health needed a mobile solution for wayfinding and patient experience that would reflect its corporate branding while serving the unique needs of each facility
Dignity Health is the fifth-largest hospital system in the U.S. and the largest not-for-profit hospital provider in California. It operates 39 hospitals and ancillary facilities across 21 states.
Dignity Health Compass is a flagship platform for all facilities in the Dignity Health system. Static wayfinding provides smooth routing throughout publicly accessible areas across multiple floors in each facility, with customizable points of interest as well as search and filtering capabilities. Each facility can add Bluetooth beacons and other customization as needed. After a successful pilot, the app is now live at 11 Dignity Health sites and will be rolled out to the entire system by the end of 2016.

IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
