A major problem in aging, complicated hospitals is the ability of outpatients and visitors to find their way to various destinations. Boston Children’s Hospital developed a smartphone app in 2012 using IoT technology that serves as a real-time GPS mapping system that is capable of responding to immediate hospital layout changes. From 2012 to 2017, the app was downloaded 4.500 times and 65% of users found it helpful.
