When you go to the hospital, you may already be anxious and stressed. Navigating the maze of a large hospital can be frustrating and being lost is the last thing you want to do when seeking treatment. Luckily, at the University of Utah, a new online wayfinding system is being developed that not only helps patients find their way, but also provides useful information about the different departments, clinics and centers. Christopher Strong, a geographic system analyst working on the project speaks about his Imagine Perfect Care statement and how this system can give patients more control over their health care.
