The event will also feature an IT exposition with the latest technology products and services from more than 25 Middle Tennessee companies.
Nashville technology startup Goba LLC has landed a partnership deal with Aegis Health Group.
Through the deal, Aegis' hospital clients will have access to Goba's mobile application, which allows users to bring people together for healthy activities by using their smart phones, texting or the Web. Aegis' clients will be able to encourage healthy activities among their own employees and those of local employers by using this tool.
“Goba’s partnership with Aegis Health Group offers hospitals the opportunity to engage consumers and increase loyalty through technology that is convenient, immediate, friendly and effective,” said Goba CEO John Dayani. “Aegis has a long history of providing progressive business development strategies to hospitals. Goba’s mobile platform is a logical technological addition to their already innovative solutions.”
Goba is partially funded by TNInvestco TriStar Technology Ventures.
