We Breathe Life Into Data

At Komodo Health, our mission is to reduce the global burden of disease. And we believe that smarter use of data is essential to this mission. That’s why we built the Healthcare Map — the industry’s largest, most complete, precise view of the U.S. healthcare system — by combining de-identified, real-world patient data with innovative algorithms and decades of clinical experience. The Healthcare Map serves as our foundation for a powerful suite of software applications, helping us answer healthcare’s most complex questions for our partners. Across the healthcare ecosystem, we’re helping our clients unlock critical insights to track detailed patient behaviors and treatment patterns, identify gaps in care, address unmet patient needs, and reduce the global burden of disease.

As we pursue these goals, it remains essential to us that we stay grounded in our values: be awesome, seek growth, deliver “wow,” and enjoy the ride. At Komodo, you will be joining a team of ambitious, supportive Dragons with diverse backgrounds but a shared passion to deliver on our mission to reduce the burden of disease — and enjoy the journey along the way.

The Opportunity at Komodo Health

The MapAI team at Komodo is using cutting-edge generative AI to build a better way to get data-driven insights about healthcare. We are an integral part of Komodo’s platform working on the most comprehensive data about what actually happens in US healthcare.

Answering healthcare questions in a high-quality manner using the best data is a complex undertaking, requiring significant technical and domain expertise. Generative AI offers a path to do this automatically and efficiently, but engineering and fine-tuning AI systems is itself a challenge.

  • Regular team syncs about our machine learning lifecycle approach, including generating and constructively critiquing new ideas
  • Continually evaluating new technologies and innovations that can be incorporated into our solution
