kidney education.

IKONA helps you deliver, measure and support individual learning journeys for patients navigating chronic kidney disease.

Eliminating barriers to effective patient education leads to better health outcomes and reduces costs.


Our solution helps patients thrive using learning science and storytelling.

IKONA gives you the power to personalize education.

A patient's goals, motivations, and overall understanding should drive their individual learning pathway. If your team focuses on helping patients manage their health, navigate their care plans or learn about their available treatment options, you're in the right place.

How we help your team

We make it easier for kidney care providers to deliver effective, measurable education that leads to faster learning and better retention.



Patients already have access to free handouts and online resources, yet still struggle to understand their health and treatment options.

Better delivery is all about how and when patients learn.



How do you currently see a patient's understanding, confidence, or interest in available treatment options?

Better measurement means a more complete picture of the patient journey at every stage.



Together, we can eliminate barriers to health literacy in kidney education. Support is a key component of that aim.

How? With a patient-first, human-led approach, powered by our technology.
