3 Ways Indoor Maps are Changing Bus Stations for the Better

by Jibestream on 3/12/19 9:28 AM

The extent to which bus stations serve as both major transportation hubs and key community centers means that they are often very complex public spaces. In many parts of the world, buses are the most frequently used method of travel, and hub stations are often integrated community-centric venues that see millions of visitors every year in urban centres. Given the high volume of traffic in and around bus stations, there is great potential for indoor mapping and navigation technology to simplify and improve operations within these busy, complicated facilities.

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).

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.
