Navenio, the UK health and location tech scale-up, has announced plans for its next chapter of growth and expansion into the US, following a £9.5m investment awarded last month.
The company has appointed Connie Moser as chief executive after seeing a 153% increase in revenue in 2021.
Moser joins Navenio with more than 30 years of experience in healthcare strategy, sales, and operations, including building large-scale businesses across global markets.
The company has also appointed geospatial expert, Andrew Loveless, to drive innovation outside of healthcare in his role as vice president of business development.
The appointment comes after Navenio recently partnered with HERE Technologies to power the indoor positioning element of its Indoor Map as a service; creating a one-stop-shop for indoor mapping solutions.
As part of its plans for growth, Navenio’s US-based leadership will lead the charge from the largest health economy in the world, bringing the benefits of indoor location services to everyone, everywhere.
Moser said: “I am joining at a pivotal time for Navenio and am delighted to drive our expansion in the US and beyond.
“I look forward to building strong global partnerships and believe passionately in the vast potential that Navenio can bring by ensuring ‘right person, right place, right time’ in healthcare settings.
“Artificial intelligence is one of many technologies making a real world impact in the healthcare sector, and I’m proud to lead a company spearheading digital transformation”
Navenio is tackling the rising cost of healthcare with a tool that can increase workplace productivity by up to 100%, freeing up clinical resources for other high-value tasks.
The company’s mission is to get teams back to capacity post pandemic by maximising patient flow in key departments, such as imaging and logistics, a key issue limiting the ability of hospitals to improve both clinician and staff productivity, and patient throughput.
Martin Moran, chairman at Navenio, said: “I’m delighted to announce our plans for growth and welcome both Connie and Andrew to the Navenio team.
“The possibility of indoor location technology is vast and we’re excited to be expanding into the US, providing the benefits of our technology to everyone, everywhere.”
Following recent funding from NHSX, as part of an AI in Health and Care Award, Navenio is also currently developing a proven and nationally-scalable evidence-based solution to further support improved patient flow across the NHS.
The first live sites, as part of the 13 hospital Award programme, have already delivered a positive impact to trusts, staff, and patients, with the full results due to be published later this year.
