We’re on a mission to bring high-quality healthcare to all of humanity.

Our Story

Right Health was founded in 2017 by John Mozas and Dan Pawliw with a vision to re-imagine healthcare. Right Health acquired Akira in 2016.

We started from first principles by asking a simple question: how can we embed technology into the very core of healthcare to make it better?

 

Today, we offer convenient care from anywhere.
