Healthier children = a healthier community.

FLUency is a program designed to keep schools healthier by improving the community’s knowledge of, and response to, spreading contagious illness.

  • ENABLE EARLIER CARE: Steer the newly-ill to appropriate sites of care, helping them get better faster
  • PROMOTE PREVENTION: Guide those at risk of illness to take appropriate precautions, reducing incidence of illness
  • EMPOWER THE COMMUNITY: Arm school nurses, parents, and teachers with information on local illness levels, helping them react to reduce transmission

FLUency works to keep schools healthier:

0 %

decrease in unnecessary ER visits, measured through claims data

0 %

decrease in illness-based absences observed during peak of flu season

0 %

increase in appropriate levels of handwashing amongst students

Step 1:

School & Family Enrollment

Thousands of schools nationwide apply to be a part of the program each year. Once accepted, families and teachers connect via the app and may receive a free Kinsa thermometer. Families can quickly detect & respond to illness through their in-app school group.

Step 2:

Illness Prevention & Preparation

Kinsa keeps families healthy through a contextual, social conversation about health. For example:

  • Private in-app school groups where parents come to ask health questions and alert others when a bug is going around
  • Educational content to help parents proactively prepare for cold and flu

Step 3:

Illness Support

Families use early knowledge of spreading illness to take children to the doctor faster, get treatment sooner, and help their school prevent sickness from spreading.
