Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Gozio’s solution includes interactive maps, which can give users step-by-step navigation to doctor’s offices, pharmacies, restrooms, parking garages and hospitals’ on-site dining locations.
Additionally, the platform lets them check out urgent care and ED wait times. They can use it to access virtual visits, electronic health records, rideshare services and physician directories, as well as schedule appointments and pay bills.
“Gozio’s collaboration with AT&T enhances our mission to improve patients’ access to care and give health systems access to the boundless patient engagement opportunities available with a customizable mobile platform,” Gozio Health CEO Joshua Titus said in the news release.
Founded in 2013, the Atlanta company’s tool is used by hospitals such as Piedmont Healthcare, University of Miami Health System, Greenville Health System and Grady Health System, among others. In 2015, it received $950,000 in seed funding from three investors.
“Today, the solutions AT&T offers go beyond traditional services to boost patient satisfaction and support optimal patient outcomes,” Rod Cruz, AT&T’s general manager of healthcare industry solutions, said in a statement. “Together with Gozio, we can help healthcare customers improve patient outcomes by engaging our collective capabilities in connectivity and data analytics.”
The collaboration between the entities builds on AT&T’s hospital solutions.
Earlier this year, AT&T joined forces with Anelto Health, a company focused on chronic care management and transitional care management for older adults, to tackle remote patient monitoring. Anelto offers a two-way cellular hub called HomeAssure, which pairs with vital sign monitors and activity trackers. The hub utilizes AT&T cellular connectivity, and no WiFi connection is needed. Via the AT&T secure mobile network, the patient’s health data and activity information are transmitted to their healthcare provider.
