Gozio Health raises nearly $1M for indoor hospital navigation app

By Brian Dolan

Gozio HealthLast week Atlanta-based Gozio Health, which offers a patient-facing indoor wayfinding app to hospitals, raised just under $1 million in funding from a handful of angel investors, including an undisclosed "large family office", an unnamed Palo Alto-area investor, and Atlanta-based investor Rutherford Seydel.

For its indoor navigation technology, Gozio uses a combination of data from the user's smartphone's "electromagnetic, motion, orientation sensors" and does not require facilities to add expensive infrastructure upgrades. The app includes a physician director, appointment notifications, and a parking location reminder. The app also includes a follow-up survey feature that hospitals can use to gather patient satisfaction information after a visit.

"It is not often that technology is able to directly solve real-world problems faced by millions and it takes people with vision and acumen to recognize the potential of such a solution," Joshua Titus, Gozio Health CEO said in a statement. "I am delighted that we have investors with these qualities, and who understand the need for Gozio Health and the benefits it offers to patients as well as hospitals and their teams."
