Kiio CEO Dave Grandin Explains How the Company’s Pivot Puts it in a Position to Succeed


This week Steve Krupa chats with Dave Grandin, president and CEO of Kiio, about the company’s work to help payers and providers manage patient care. Dave Grandin brings an outsider’s perspective to healthcare, finding great success leading sports technology companies like Avid Sports. Following a short break, Dave returned to the start-up world to help healthcare tackle its own problems by leading Kiio. The company has a unique focus on evidence-based care pathways and low back pain, two areas that likely don’t receive enough attention from Digital Health start-ups.

Overview: Kiio seems to be working an untapped market.
Surprises: Dave Grandin is candid about the company’s strategic pivot.
Regrets: I didn’t get Steve Krupa’s Super Bowl prediction.
