Our purpose

After creating breakthrough technologies for revenue cycle management, we founded Koan Health in 2012 to pursue a broader vision of healthcare value. In our earlier work, we discovered waste, disorganization and disparities in care that increase costs and reduce the system’s ability to actually improve health for patients and populations.

Today, we’re helping achieve the shared goal of optimal healthcare value with a more personalized approach to care.

Koan’s sophisticated predictive analytics enable organizations to do the right things for patients—at the right time, in the right amount and in the right setting. Through integrated data, tools and support, we empower early intervention and education that help patients better manage chronic and complex conditions.

Healthier patients mean lower health care costs. And in a pay-for-performance world of at-risk, accountable care, lower costs mean greater health for the organizations we serve. A vibrant healthcare system creating healthier patients and populations—it’s the win-win scenario we’re all working toward.

Our philosophy

At Koan Health, we do things the right way for our customers and bring respect, integrity and honesty to every interaction. We’re open and transparent in our work—and our customers know that our highly skilled professionals will deliver on every commitment, every time. Our employees choose Koan Health because they’re passionate about transforming healthcare and want to work in an environment that’s rewarding, respectful and enjoyable.

Our name

“Koan” honors the philosophy and contributions of Hippocrates, the renowned Greek physician who’s been called the father of medicine. At his school on the island of Kos, near the western coast of Turkey, Hippocrates trained physicians in a unique, patient-centered approach to health and healing.

The Koan School placed great emphasis on observing and documenting the patient’s family history, environment and condition. By recording symptoms—like complexion, pulse, fever, pains, movement and excretions—and treatments in great detail, Hippocrates and his students created valuable records to guide ongoing care and teach new physicians.

In the spirit of Hippocrates, Koan Health creates rich, patient-centered information for optimal results and improved health.
