PHUN stock is moving higher on May 21, 2020, after the company announced yet another big partnership.
Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, announced today a new Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) deployment with Parkview Health of Fort Wayne, Indiana, for its new digital front door on mobile.
Founded in 1878, Parkview Health is the region’s largest employer with more than 13,000 employees in 10 hospitals who serve nearly one million people across Northeast Indiana and Northwest Ohio. The Parkview Health mobile application portfolio is available on the Apple iOS and Google Android operating systems to better engage patients across their continuum of care, all while optimizing operational and staff efficiencies, lowering costs and boosting revenue. Patients, staff and visitors alike can now seamlessly engage with critical healthcare functions and navigate across more than 1.7 million square feet spanning seven floors, including more than 400 customized points of interest.
“The Parkview Health mobile application portfolio is an excellent example of the digital transformation in healthcare that Phunware can help leading healthcare organizations achieve,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “By leveraging Phunware’s MaaS platform, Parkview Health now offers a frictionless experience through one stand-alone app for all of their needs, which is even more challenging and critical due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic specific to COVID-19.”
Phunware’s digital front door not only enables feature-rich mobile application solutions for healthcare providers, but it also offers seamless integrations with Electronic Health Records (EHRs) such as Epic and Cerner, as well as telehealth service providers such as Teledoc and Amwell. This holistic approach completely eliminates the pain of having to manage dozens of point solutions while simultaneously offering staff, patients and visitors a far more simplistic, cohesive and integrated healthcare experience. Additional capabilities include, but are not limited to:
- Mobile engagement for contextual notifications, including appointment reminders
- Real-time “blue dot” indoor positioning, including mapping, navigation and wayfinding
- Beacon Maintenance to ensure optimal performance of location based services
- Epic MyChart integration with face ID biometric login medical record access
- Prescription management with Teledoc and E-Visit functionality
- Staff directory

Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “By integrating Meridian location technology into our digital front door solution for healthcare, we expect to showcase the extensibility of our MaaS platform for Apple iOS and Google Android patient environments on mobile with real-time, one-to-one engagements, interactions and traceability, both indoors and outdoors.”
