Tagnos, an Irvine, Calif.-based developer of a clinical logistics automation solution for hospitals and clinics, received $5m in funding.
Backers included Benhamou Global Ventures, Morpheus Ventures and Zebra Ventures, the investment arm of Zebra Technologies Corp.
Led by Neeraj Bhavani, Founder and CEO, Tagnos provides a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed to orchestrate hospital workflow to reduce wait times, enhance the patient experience, improve staff efficiency and optimize the utilization of supplies and equipment.
The company’s analytics engine can ingest data from any real-time location system (RTLS) solution that tracks the locations of patients, staff members and physical assets. In addition, Tagnos incorporates data from electronic health records (EHRs), computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems, laboratory and radiology information systems, bed management systems and hospital admission-discharge-transfer (ADT) systems.
The solution analyzes all of this data to improve patient flow and to prevent bottlenecks by alerting staff about anticipated problems. The insights generated by the platform are also used to reengineer work flows so that care teams can deliver care more efficiently.
