For most of us, healthcare sucks. Healthvana makes navigating our health better by empowering the patient with their own health information. We created a patient platform for healthcare providers to manage and communicate with their populations. Healthvana excels at engaging patients in their health and helping them take whatever next step towards better health – all via your mobile phone.

Since 2015, our technology has been used in the fight to help end HIV, and since April of 2020, to end COVID-19. Healthvana is the nation’s leading patient platform for both HIV and COVID-19 – having helped tens-of-millions of patients achieve better health outcomes, while reducing cost for healthcare providers.
