Alaska Native Health Campus first health campus in Alaska to launch comprehensive digital wayfinding platform

November 1st, 2021 by Chelsea Wells

The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) and Southcentral Foundation (SCF) have partnered to implement a state-of-the-art digital wayfinding solution for patients and visitors navigating around the Alaska Native Health Campus. This technology, which includes indoor turn-by-turn directions inside the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) hospital, specialty clinics and Anchorage Native Primary Care Center, is the first of its kind in Alaska.

Tinitun: Pathways to Health app is available for download on all Apple or Android smartphones, or may be accessed by desktop, mobile browser or used at on-site kiosks in select lobbies. The app will help campus visitors locate providers or clinics with ease, discover campus food options, find the nearest shuttle, mark the location of their parked cars and more.

Tinitun, pronounced, “tin-ee-toon” is the Dena’ina word for “trail: major passageways of human movement.” This name is used with permission from the Native Village of Eklutna on whose land the Alaska Native Health Campus is situated, to acknowledge the people and culture of the Dena’ina, while also describing the app’s function: connecting those we serve with their health care using modern technology. The app’s multiple capabilities, as well as the acknowledgment that all paths are different and based on individual choices, are underscored by the tagline – Pathways to Health.

With the continual innovation and expansion around all areas of the Alaska Native Health Campus, patients who visit Anchorage infrequently were finding it sometimes challenging to locate the new locations of the clinic or provider that they were here to see. This feedback, voiced by patients, helped our leadership identify a need to find a solution to navigate around campus, as well as access information about transportation, patient housing and associated care coordination services to help ensure the best experience possible for our patients.

On-site kiosks are now in place in the Patient Housing at ANMC lobby, the main rotunda entrance of the ANMC hospital, the Healthy Communities Building lobby, and Anchorage Native Primary Care Center main and 2 East entrances. It is anticipated that kiosk locations will be expanded in the future.

The app is available now for download in the Apple and Google Play stores for Apple or Android smartphones.
