PRLog - March 11, 2014 - ADEJE, Spain -- SAN DIEGO – XiMED Medical Group announced today its collaboration with Total Communicator Solutions, Inc., a developer of mobile marketing communication platforms and customized applications with the installation of the first proximity beacon network in a health care setting and a new mobile application for XiMED patients.
The beacons, placed at key locations within the XiMED network, integrate with Total Communicator Solutions’ Spark Compass communication platform and its geo-location features to deliver customized content with pinpoint accuracy via XiMED’s mobile phone application.
The XiMED app will launch this spring and provide patients and physicians with advanced tools and methods to communicate and prepare for office visits, procedures and follow-up care.
The XiMED app is based on the Spark Compass platform, which integrates with the Gimbal™ context aware and proximity platform from Qualcomm Retail Solutions, Inc. The XiMED app enables delivery of non-medical, personalized, highly relevant communications to patients on their mobile devices. “With the Spark Compass platform, XiMED can deliver in-app experiences and notifications, including patient reminders about medications, appointments, queries on a patient’s progress, and current medical status,” said Tom Sounhein, CEO, XiMED Medical Group.
“The XiMED app’s augmented reality component will add video and other features to assist physicians in patient education using the very latest technological trends. The app also will send a notification alert when the patient is approaching the facility, streamlining the check-in process. These features enhance the XiMED approach to personalized care.” “Working with XiMED’s innovative team has enabled us to fast track the integration of this exciting new proximity technology,”
“By focusing on patient care via improved and efficient communication and location services through the patient’s personal device, both inside and outside the facility, we are creating stronger relationships between caregivers and their patients and adding greater efficiencies to almost every area of patient treatment and service.”
The beacon network has been installed at Scripps/XiMED Medical Center and affiliated organizations in the San Diego area. The XiMED app with the Spark Compass platform integration is in final stages of development and will be offered to the public after integration with the beacon network is completed.
