Our Mission & What We Do 🚀

Our healthcare system is costly and ineffective. We’re redesigning it from first principles, starting with patients who have chronic conditions.

Gradia provides a virtual extension to brick-and-mortar clinics, empowering physicians to deliver a concierge care experience at scale.

Ultimately, our software is the backbone of the entire patient experience, providing patients with personalized, high-touch care while also helping clinics improve their bottom line. With our platform, patients can stay informed about the status of their care, easily communicate with their providers, and get direct access to specialized, virtual care teams that put them on a path towards recovery.

Our software is currently at several clinics across the Southeastern US and helping thousands of patients get the care they deserve.

Our mission is to make highly attentive, integrated care a standard for all patients and bring more joy to the job of being a physician. And, we deeply believe that beautiful, well-thought software is the only way to make this a reality.

Founded by two Stanford engineers, Gradia is backed by MaC Venture Capital, YCombinator, Atlanta Ventures, Soma Capital, and incredible operators/founders of companies like Ramp, Protocol Labs, Golden, BoltBloomtech, and BillionToOne.
