    ABOUT US:

    In 2016, We gathered a small group of technologists and doctors together and started discussing some pretty big questions:

    1. How do we leverage technology and AI to create healthcare that is personalized, proactive and available?
    2. How can we remove barriers that limit access to quality healthcare from doctors?
    3. Could consumer-focused technology ultimately improve health outcomes?
    4. Why don't individuals take more control of their health information?
    5. How do we leverage technology and AI to create healthcare that is personalized, proactive and available?

    At K, we've spent the last three years building products and services to address those questions and create a better healthcare experience for consumers, and we've built an amazing team to do just that. We aspire to use data and technology to deliver smarter, more personalized healthcare information, and increase access to quality care that costs dramatically less and leads to better outcomes.

    We still have a long way to go, but with hundreds of thousands of users joining our platform every month, you have an opportunity to help shape the future of healthcare as we build the most sophisticated healthcare platform and make K the home for the world's primary health needs.
