Navenio Selected to Join AWS Healthcare Accelerator: Global Cohort for Workforce
The location tech innovator will use AWS Cloud solutions to advance its location-based workforce solutions, delivering better care, patient outcomes and more efficient utilisation of hospital staff
Oxford (March 27th 2023) — Navenio today announced it has been selected to participate in the AWS Healthcare Accelerator: Global Cohort for Workforce to advance solutions for addressing urgent challenges facing the healthcare workforce.
Healthcare workforce shortages are at crisis levels, driven by burnout, shrinking budgets, and the aftermath of a worldwide pandemic. As a result, patients may go untreated or experience delays in care, and healthcare workers need support now more than ever.
This AWS Healthcare Accelerator is a four-week technical, business, and mentorship program for startups seeking to use AWS to improve healthcare workforce training, retention, and deployment. This opportunity will support Navenio’s efforts to unlock a 2-3x improvement in the number of tasks hospital staff can complete on a daily basis, thereby improving bottom-line, patient experience and staff retention.
The AWS Healthcare Accelerator curriculum provides opportunities such as hands-on AWS Cloud and technical training, mentorship from healthcare leaders, and exposure to AWS customers and members of the AWS Partner Network. Navenio may also receive AWS computing credits and opportunities to speak with investors and industry experts, including at a Demo Day where Navenio will be showcased.
Navenio’s Intelligent Workforce Solution provides an indoor mapping system for healthcare facilities and beyond. With its beacon-less technology, Navenio helps optimise patient flow for medical and allied health professionals.
