K Health (previously Kang Health) is an AI-powered health app that empowers consumers with health information based on the experiences of others.
K Health is the first health app to offer personalized healthcare based on your symptoms and real people like you.
K Health was founded in 2016 by Allon Bloch & Ran Shaul. The company is headquartered in New York, New York, with an office in Tel Aviv, Israel.
K Health offers free personalized health information that is AI driven and enables people to get faster and better care through K's Primary Care offering.
K Health is able to compare users to those with similar symptoms and medical histories before zeroing in on a diagnosis, by using a data set of two billion historical health events over the past 20 years — compiled from doctors’ notes, lab results, hospitalizations, drug statistics and outcome data.
K Health recently partnered with Anthem to develop a cobranded version of K- CareSpree- that lets Anthem’s over 40 million members chat with a doctor for “less than a copay.” For in-person doctor visits, magnetic resonance imaging scans, and X-rays, CareSpree enables users to schedule appointments at participating health care providers and pay a prenegotiated price.
K Health’s smartphone app, K- has more than 4 million members, growing at a rate of 10,000 to 15,000 new users a day. It facilitates in-app visits from a roster of doctors K users can consult for a fee, assuming they live in one of the U.S. states where service is available.
K Health is backed by Mangrove, 14W, Comcast Ventures, Anthem, Lerer Hippeau, Primary Ventures, Max Ventures, (HMO) Maccabi Health, The Box Group and others. The company raised $42M in Series D round on Nov 18, 2020. This brings K Health's total funding to $139.3M to date.
