HIMSS19 Takeaway: Interoperability is Key to Creating Exceptional Patient Experiences

by Chris Wiegand on 2/21/19 2:26 PM

Last week, I was present as HIMSS19 took over Orlando with thousands of healthcare providers and technology professionals converging to discuss innovation and emerging technologies in healthcare. The excitement around the newly unveiled information blocking rule has increased the push for vendor interoperability and while the healthcare industry is certainly rife with legacy technology, sensitive data, and bureaucracy, it is on the precipice of monumental change. In recent years, we’ve seen hospitals and healthcare facilities taking small steps towards holistic digital healthcare delivery, and after such an exciting week at HIMSS19, I expect we’re going to see them take bigger strides towards a healthcare landscape which has fully embraced innovation and is well on its way to harnessing the power of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Breaking Down the Jargon: Digital Twins, Indoor Mapping, IPIN, and More

by Dave Johnson on 2/7/19 8:24 AM

When it comes to indoor mapping and navigation projects, there are lots of buzzwords and terms that get used with little explanation. They sound straightforward at first passing, but when it comes time to choose a vendor, many organizations find that the services that they thought they were exploring are actually something completely different, or depend upon other solutions they did not know about. At Jibestream, we’re big fans of clarity and transparency, so we’ve put together this starting glossary to break down the jargon and cut through the clutter.

How Railway Stations are Digitally Transforming to Face the Future

by Vinay Iyer on 1/29/19 8:56 AM

Following a decline in usage after World War II, rail transport has seen a revival in popularity in recent decades thanks to an increase in congestion on roads, rising fuel prices, and government investment in rail as a means of reducing CO2 emissions. In much of the world, railway stations and passenger train transportation is ingrained in the infrastructure of cities, and account for a significant portion of public space. Railway stations are a fixture in our cityscapes and are in the process of a digital transformation in the face of centuries of legacy systems and technology.

Mapping the Year Ahead: IoT and IPIN Predictions for 2019

by Chris Wiegand on 1/23/19 10:27 AM

The post "Mapping the Year Ahead: IoT and IPIN Predictions for 2019" appeared first on DirectionsMag.

"Over the past few years, the stage has been set for greater implementation of IoT projects across various industries and use cases. In 2019, we can expect that the availability and access to location services will expand beyond individual sites to a larger scale as we look forward to wider enterprise adoption. I also anticipate that in the coming year buildings will get smarter, both by initial design and through retrofitting and adaptation, and that there will be some prescient changes in the indoor mapping and positioning technology provider landscape."
