Our commitment to health

At Koa Health, we believe in putting people (and their mental health) first. So we’ve made it our goal to leverage technology and research to enable people to change their behaviors with effective and accessible support that adapts to their unique circumstances.

Our values

Compassion

We encourage and support people as they work with us to improve their health, with empathy, understanding and respect.

Trust

Improvements in health cannot happen without easy-to-access, clinically-validated interventions people can depend on for treatment and support.

Evidence

When it comes to digital health, we believe scientific research and meaningful innovations, driven by that research, are the way forward.

Our approach

Breakthrough technology for flexible, effective care

Because people’s health and safety are at the centre of everything we do, we conduct comprehensive research on all products—from testing concepts to evaluating usability with diverse users.

Treatment programs are validated through randomized controlled trials (RCTs), including pivotal clinical trials towards FDA clearance, and audited by third parties to ensure unbiased solutions.

Partners

Our team of researchers, data scientists, clinicians and engineers collaborate with leading institutions such as Massachusetts General Hospital and Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust to build evidence-based prediction, prevention and treatment solutions that meet users’ mental health needs end-to-end.

Our team

Our diverse, cross-functional team of researchers, engineers and designers collaborate with the best clinicians in the world to develop and implement groundbreaking technology. Together, we're dedicated to combining our talents for the greater good.
