Tagnos Receives Cisco Investment

Clinical logistics automation solution gains traction in hospitals, driven by integration with Cisco Webex Teams app for continuous teamwork with video meetings, group messaging, file sharing and white boarding.

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., June 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Tagnos, developer of the leading clinical logistics automation solution for hospitals and clinics, announced today that it has received funding from Cisco Investments through the Cisco Webex Innovation Fund to help support Tagnos’ 18-month-old integration with the cloud-based Webex Teams app for continuous teamwork. In February, Tagnos, which already has hospital customers across the country, received series A funding of $5 million from Benhamou Global Ventures, Morpheus Ventures and Zebra Ventures, the investment arm of Zebra Technologies Corp.

“With the additions to our management team and the continuing support of Cisco Investments and our other investors, Tagnos is well-positioned to build on its initial success with the next generation of workflow optimization tools for hospitals and healthcare systems,” said Neeraj Bhavani, Founder and CEO of Tagnos. “The integration of Cisco Webex Teams into our software gives hospitals an essential tool for rapid identification of emergent problems with patient flow, staffing and other logistical issues so that staff members can quickly resolve them. At the same time, Tagnos can be a gateway for clinicians to access patient information as they collaborate on problem-solving in Webex Teams spaces.”

Tagnos is the first company to take Webex Teams HIPAA-compliant tools into hospitals. The first two hospitals to pilot the integrated solution are Covenant Speciality Hospital in Lubbock, Texas, and White Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

“We are pleased to invest in Tagnos through the Webex Innovation Fund,” said Rob Salvagno, vice president, Corporate Development at Cisco. “Tagnos has displayed technical ingenuity, combined with a deep understanding of what makes healthcare tick.”
