ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gozio Health announced today that Nicklaus Children’s Health System in Miami, Fla., has launched its industry-leading, customizable location-aware digital health platform. Patients, families and visitors can now access the new Gozio-powered MyNicklaus App and achieve a seamless digital connection with key access points of the health system, empowering better care and guest experiences.
Headquartered in Miami, Nicklaus Children’s is the first children’s hospital system in South Florida to launch a digital health platform that brings together all consumer-facing access points into a single, user-friendly mobile app. The implementation aims to align with a surge in demand for technologies that put consumers in control of their care.
“The introduction of MyNicklaus App wayfinding is a great step forward for the children and families we serve,” said Dr. David Seo, CIO, Nicklaus Children’s Health System. “Creating a welcoming environment that minimizes the potential for undue stress during a child’s care journey is critical to our mission. We look forward to opportunities for enhanced connectivity with our communities through Gozio’s robust digital health platform, as well as the potential for expanding our mobile connectivity strategy in the years ahead.”
Patients, families and visitors can download the MyNicklaus App and take advantage of indoor navigation capabilities on the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital 309-bed campus. The Gozio platform provides GPS-like turn-by-turn directions as well as patient flow capabilities that ensure patients are guided to locations in the order they need to be accessed. The MyNicklaus App also makes it easy to find onsite amenities, from restaurants to restrooms to ATMs – as well as helps patients access digital services such as physician directories, appointment scheduling, patient records and more.
“Recent industry surveys reveal that the vast majority of health system CFOs believe that digital health transformation is critical to future positioning. And for good reason—consumers are increasingly demanding digital engagement as part of a positive healthcare experience,” said Joshua Titus, CEO and founder of Gozio Health. “Nicklaus Children’s is setting the pace for digital engagement within the children’s hospitals sector in South Florida, and we applaud their vision and desire to provide positive healthcare experiences for children and families.”
