Severance Hospital said Monday it has launched an in-hospital navigation system, using a next-generation mobile service application called “My Severance.”
The hospital installed 2,000 beacons, a short-range wireless communication device based on the Bluetooth 4.0 protocol, throughout the compound to enable accurate location awareness by 2.5D technology maps, making it possible for patients and caregivers to visit consultation and examination rooms easily.
“My Severance”‘My세브란스’ will also include mobile apps, appointments, medical history inquiries, appointments and notification messages. Patients can directly modify his/her phone number or address through the app, and can automatically exit without charging parking fees when registering their vehicle registration plate.
The app also informs the order of the medical care and a medical card for convenience.
