Acuity Brands, Inc. has announced that Gozio Health, a healthcare technology company specializing in mobile wayfinding, has joined its Atrius™ Internet of Things (IoT) partner ecosystem. Gozio Health will be expanding its mobile platform to include Atrius™ indoor positioning solutions (IPS), leveraging the Atrius™ Navigator Software Development Kit (SDK). Globally, Acuity Brands is a leading provider of lighting and building management solutions.
Using the wayfinding technology developed by Gozio Health, patients can navigate from their home, to the correct parking area, and on to their point-of-care inside a healthcare system’s facility with their smartphones. Gozio Health provides an app that is branded for each healthcare facility and can be further customized with access to additional services such as the MYChart® patient portal and physician directory, allowing patients to meet their medical care needs. Gozio has earned an exclusive endorsement from the American Hospital Association for its wayfinding solution.
Gozio Health’s mobile platform will leverage the Bluetooth® low energy and Visible Light Communication technologies embedded in LED luminaires enabled with Atrius. The reliability and position-location precision offered through this solution will enhance Gozio Health’s current capabilities for wayfinding in indoor and adjacent outdoor spaces. By leveraging these embedded technologies within LED luminaires enabled with Atrius rather than stand-alone beacons, healthcare facilities can more cost-effectively implement IPS technology.
“We chose the Atrius IoT solution to expand our current mobile application development offering for our hospital partners,” said Joshua Titus, CEO of Gozio Health. “When we tap into the smart LED lighting technologies enabled with Atrius, patients at healthcare facilities will experience world class mobile wayfinding.”
