Kaia Health taps president

Digital therapeutics company Kaia Health appointed Nigel Ohrenstein – healthcare entrepreneur and Lumeris co-founder – as president to accelerate the growth and further advance Kaia Health’s strategy as the market leader in musculoskeletal (MSK) care. Kaia covers 60 million lives worldwide and has transformed MSK care by delivering clinically proven care using computer vision technology through the camera of a smartphone, anytime, anywhere.

Ohrenstein brings more than 20 years of experience dedicated to transforming the healthcare system by delivering solutions that reduce the cost of care, improve the quality of care, and enhance the patient experience. As co-founder of Lumeris, management says Ohrenstein helped build Lumeris into the leading value-based care company.

“Nigel’s combination of business intelligence and dedication to improving both the quality and cost of care will accelerate Kaia Health’s next phase of growth, further our lead in the MSK market, and advance our mission to make effective therapies accessible to patients anywhere and at any time,” stated Konstantin Mehl, Kaia Health Founder and CEO.

“Kaia Health is an exceptional, mission-driven company that is transforming healthcare by furthering access to affordable high-quality care,” Ohrenstein noted. “I am delighted to join an incredible team that is solving four of healthcare’s largest challenges: access, quality, affordability, and health equity.”

During 2021, Kaia Health sealed a $75 million Series C round to expand clinical capabilities, heavily invest in computer vision technology, and transform digital therapies in the United States and Europe.
