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 GGV Capital, Valor Equity Partners, Mangrove, 14W, Comcast Ventures, Anthem, Lerer Hippeau, Primary Ventures, Max Ventures, (HMO) Maccabi Health, The Box Group and others. The company raised $132M in Series E round on Jan 19, 2021. This brings K Health's total funding to $271.3M to date. The latest round valued K Health at $1.5B post-money.
