Wayfinding app HosNav gets major makeover

by Osler Staff | Mar 22, 2017

Tap, tap, swipe, take a picture, check your calendar, tap, tap, swipe, send a text, scroll, scroll some more, make a call, tap, tap. Your phone has worked itself into your everyday life. We’re blending seamlessly in with our patients’ everyday mobile habits with a massive update to HosNav.

Coming to the hospital can be an overwhelming experience. And the last thing you need to worry about is fumbling with payment or wandering around looking for signage. HosNav will help you get right to where you need to go with the least amount of stress.

The app is designed to help patients figure out how to get to their outpatient appointments at any of our sites. It includes parking costs, closest lots to appointments, and clinic locations.

With the opening of Peel Memorial and shifts in clinic whereabouts across all of our sites, we’ve taken the opportunity to make a bunch of improvements to our inaugural app:

  • An updated version is available on the App Store
  • A brand new version is available on the Google Play Store
  • Peel Memorial clinics have been added
  • Design and layout has drastically changed for a more attractive appearance and experience

"As smart phones and mobile apps continue to become more popular, we recognize that such technology provides Osler with an incredible opportunity to help patients have enhanced access to care and improve the overall healthcare experience," said Susan deRyk, Joint Vice-President, Service Quality and Community Relations, Osler, Headwaters Health Care Centre and Central West CCAC. "We look forward to using Osler’s app to help ensure patients have the important information they need, right at their fingertips.”
