We are a company of builders, passionate about consumer health tech.

At Konona, we view healthcare as a quintessential service business, one that requires the collaboration of clinicians, payers and patients. Patient and family engagement is critical to optimizing the healthcare process, improving provider performance and enhancing people's experience of healthcare. Technology should function as a prime enabler, empowering today’s patients and family voices in the healthcare environment.


And this is really the main thrust for Konona: solutions that make patients more self-sufficient, support clinical decision-making and provide the data vital for more efficient healthcare.

Konona HealthTech is a for-profit accelerator/seed investor fund structured to: 
• Select the best candidates, mentor them through development of a successful business model for enterprise sales;
• Validate solutions in “living” healthcare systems; demonstrate Product-Market fit for regional health systems, generate evidence-based business cases for enterprise-scale implementations; 
• Support the growth of successful companies through shared services;
