Healthcare Facilities

Healthcare facilities always want to provide their patients and visitors with the best possible
experience available - often at a difficult and stressful times in peoples' lives. On the same tack,
seconds can mean the difference between life and death when the route for staff to
respond to emergencies spread across the facility is hindered.

While the benefits of wayfinding through huge and often complex spaces is paramount,
navigation is only one of the many benefits that Mapsted's location technology can provide.
