NC Company Overview

Klara is a communication platform that is used in the healthcare industry. It enables fast, streamlined communication between healthcare professionals, their teams, their patients, and other related parties. It is designed to make working collaboratively simple for doctors and other medical specialists, and to remove many of the frustrations associated with healthcare administration, making for a better experience for patients and professionals alike, and leading to higher profitability for healthcare facilities. Klara is HIPAA compliant and completely secure, making it appropriate for use for medical communication, which may involve sensitive patient information. Klara, based in New York City, NY, USA, was established in 2013 with the aim to improve and streamline the experience that both patients and healthcare professionals have when it comes to giving and receiving treatment. One of the main issues that has long been found with healthcare processes is that there can often be problems with communication, with patients not having easy access to their doctors, or for relevant people involved in the care to be brought into the loop – for instance labs, pharmacies, and insurers. Klara took on the mission of making all of this work better, by creating a revolutionary communication and collaboration platform that makes good use of the latest messaging technology.
