A reduced stress experience for patients and visitors alike

The process of finding availabe parking at a medical facility can be stressful for anyone. This can be especially true for patients and visitors, who typically have weightier issues on their minds.

Industry Challenges

When hospital garages are underutilized, the resulting traffic congestion can lead to premature expansion/construction to compensate for the parking system’s overall inefficiency. Plus, traditional security systems have a hard time getting an unobstructed view of key areas where undesirable events can take place, like in and between parking spaces.

Healthcare Solutions

The installation of an Automated Parking Guidance system (APGS) is an innovative method to significantly elevate the patient and visitor experience with faster parking, manage the complex ebb-and-flow of multiple user groups, and further differentiate your brand in today’s highly competitive healthcare services environment.

Tailored Solutions for You 

Our next-generation guidance features, such as real-time wayfinding, are distinct benefits for patients, outpatients, and visitors.

Upon arrival, our advanced wayfinding signage and camera-based M5 smart-sensors combine to direct parkers quickly to open spaces. This reduces time-to-park  up to 63%*, substantially lowers harmful CO2 emissions throughout the parking campus, and helps medical offices and clinics avoid the snowball effect of late patient arrivals.

Upon exiting, our Park Finder feature provides a convenient solution for patients and visitors who may be distracted and need assistance finding their vehicles. With our integrated License Plate Recognition (LPR), this valuable add-on allows a patient, visitor, or employee to quickly locate any parked vehicle by entering at least three numbers or letters from their license plate via a touchscreen kiosk, an enabled pay station, or an integrated mobile app.

* According to a science-based benchmarking study on time-to-park conducted by Park Assist in collaboration with the Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC). This groundbreaking before-and-after APGS analysis encompassed two parking facilities with a combined total of 7.903 individually M4-monitored bays.

An ongoing challenge for hospitals is the daily management of parking policies for doctors, nurses, and staff. Our Park Alerts add-on software module uses LPR to automatically monitor who’s parking where in your facility and sends instant alerts when violations occur. This ensures various user groups are parking in their assigned areas and enables the core INX system to maintain a complete inventory of parked vehicles for security purposes.
