How IKONA works

Education patients want.
Insights providers need.

Effective education changes lives. We help kidney care professionals deliver measurable education and support their patients every step of the way.


On-demand education and support for your patients

A lack of time and low baseline understanding of kidney health make it challenging to address patients' questions during a visit or treatment. Now kidney care teams have a reliable way to engage, educate, and measure their patients' progress between visits.

We will start with a call to better understand your needs and learn how we might support your team.

"This need for a transition to home became even more acute during the COVID-19 pandemic. How can resource-strapped dialysis clinics — which currently only spend a few minutes on patient education through paper pamphlets — safely and efficiently transition hundreds of thousands of patients to home care?


That’s where IKONA comes in."

How learning science works

Learning science is the intersection of neuroscience and psychology. Decades of research shows us how the brain learns, what its limitations are, and how we can apply its strengths in kidney care.
