TAGNOS is a Southern California-based MedTech company. Our mission is to illuminate, automate, and orchestrate healthcare results within operating rooms, emergency departments, and asset management systems.

We build streamlined technology that solves real world real time problems for patients, families and healthcare workers. Our focus is to, “Care for the Caring”.
With a deep respect for the complicated nature of delivering care within a healthcare organization, we seek simple, lightweight, and customizable solutions to achieve customizable workflow improvements.

The glue that ties commitment to results is accountability. With our visibility and automation enhancements, TAGNOS illuminates your data, automates timely and distracting processes and empowers the orchestration of asset utilization.

Engineering solutions for a better experience
For over five years, Jag has helmed the product development at TAGNOS as its Chief Technology Officer.
