Overview

Klara was founded in 2013 with a mission to transform healthcare communication, so every patient can receive great care. Klara makes it easy for healthcare providers to securely communicate with their patients and with each other, without worrying about HIPAA compliance or losing track of patient information. Healthcare providers across more than 40 specialties use Klara to provide a delightful patient experience, while streamlining their own administrative workflows and saving hours per day.

Klara has been proven to increase patient satisfaction, and reduce time spent on administrative work. And patients love it, too — the average practice sees a patient adoption rate of more than 80%, which is approximately 3x the adoption rates of patient portals and emails.

Klara, which was founded by Simon Bolz and Simon Lorenz, is backed by investors such as Firstmark Capital, Lerer Hippeau, Flatiron Health founders Zac Weinberg and Nat Turner, Clover Health founder Vivek Garipalli, InVision founder Clark Valberg, former Hubspot CRO Mark Roberge, and former Marketo Chief Growth Officer Jill Rowley, among others. It was named the winner of Silicon Valley’s Health 2.0 Award, as well as one of the Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America by Entrepreneur Magazine. It has offices in New York (HQ) and Berlin.

Culture

We are deeply rooted in healthcare — some have worked in healthcare industries before, many have family members who are medical providers, and all of us are patients. What unites us all is our passion for fixing what is a deeply broken experience for both patients and providers, and making lives better by bringing humanity back to healthcare.

Because we don’t accept the healthcare status quo, we are forging our own path — one that’s built on truly listening to our customers and deeply understanding their needs, as well as learning from our mistakes. With employees from around the world, we rely on the wide range of experiences our team brings, and we learn from the innovative networks around our offices in New York and Berlin.

We believe the future of healthcare will have empowered patients at its core, and that good medical care will also mean good service — and together we are building that future.
