UNC Health Care Introduces App to Help Patients Navigate Hospitals, Clinics and Parking
Date:12/4/2019

UNC Health Care has introduced a new mobile app that will help patients and their families easily find their way around the campuses of UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill and UNC REX Healthcare in Raleigh. The Smartphone app provides turn-by-turn navigation inside the two hospitals, parking garages, clinics and more.

The free interactive app, developed by Gozio Health, also gives patients access to physician directories, UNC Urgent Care wait times and online appointments, and the locations of cafes, restrooms and other destinations in the hospitals. Patients can use the app to mark where they parked, and then follow directions back after their appointments.

“We hope that this technology will help our patients and their families more easily find their way around our hospitals and clinics,” said Steve Burriss, president of UNC Health’s Triangle Region. “We want to find innovative ways to enhance the patient experience during what is often a stressful time.”

The app uses GPS technology and Bluetooth beacons installed throughout the hospitals, clinics and parking garages. Apple iOS and Android versions are available.

“Gozio is pleased to partner with one of the nation’s leading public academic health care systems and assist UNC Health Care with fulfilling its mission of providing excellence in patient care,” said Joshua Titus, CEO of Gozio Health.

Download the app by searching for “UNC Health” on the Apple App store, or the Google Play store. Or text “UNCAPP” to 43506.
