Let’s acknowledge the Elephant in the room

Meet Kody, the friendly and compassionate elephant who serves as our trusted guide and navigator. Just like the expression “the elephant in the room,” Kody represents those important conversations and decisions that may seem daunting or challenging. But here at Koda Health, we embrace the presence of Kody as a symbol of support and guidance.

Kody is here to assist you on your journey through the process of advance care planning. With his gentle nature and wise demeanor, he brings a sense of comfort and assurance, making the complex task of planning for your healthcare choices more approachable and manageable. Kody understands that discussing topics related to end-of-life care and medical preferences can be sensitive and emotionally charged.

Our Journey

Koda Health was brought to life after careful evaluation of the problems plaguing America’s healthcare system. Upon meeting through their shared participation in the 2020 Texas Medical Center Biodesign Fellowship, Koda’s three co-founders saw firsthand the importance of defining care prior to a medical emergency. The gaps in this process called Advance Care Planning (ACP), caused frustrations to patients and their families, providers and their care teams, and insurers who were paying for care no one desired. Transforming ACP and allowing for mass accessibility to this service became the core mission of Koda Health.
