Gozio Health | March 31, 2022

Gozio Health, an industry-leading location-aware mobile patient engagement platform, announced the closing of an investment from funds managed by Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital. The investment round will be used to accelerate Gozio's growth and sets the stage for a long-term financial partnership.

We are at a turning point in healthcare where digital strategy is not only a competitive differentiator for health systems but is foundational to positive consumer experiences. An effective digital platform can enhance engagement with patients, prevent revenue leakage and increase overall patient satisfaction. With the strong support of Morgan Stanley, Gozio is poised to substantially ramp up efforts to equip health systems with the kind of robust, extensible platform needed to optimize digital engagement.”

Joshua Titus, Founder and CEO of Gozio

Gozio’s mobile patient engagement solution provides health systems with a turnkey digital front door, offering a unified platform which integrates HCIT applications, including physician directories, appointment scheduling, EHR and patient record access, into an easy-to-use mobile application. Gozio’s solution also leverages the Company’s patented, industry-leading wayfinding technology to provide real-time, turn-by-turn directions to patients and staff.

“The consumerization of healthcare is driving hospitals and health systems to increasingly focus on patient experience and engagement. Gozio offers a solution that helps patients not only navigate the physical network of the health system, but also provides patients mobile access to the services, information and applications necessary to engage patients in their own care,” said Melissa Daniels, Managing Director at Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital. “We believe Gozio’s digital front door and wayfinding technology provide a compelling value proposition by enhancing the personal end-to-end consumer experience within the network of the health system. We are thrilled to be partnering with Joshua and the Gozio team to support the Company as it continues on its growth trajectory.”

Gozio will use the funding to expand its client base among leading health systems, grow its client services and engineering teams, and advance the extensibility of its platform to support a digital health ecosystem.
