Nuna

Older Sister

When Jini Kim was just a child, she guided her family through the American healthcare system.

At age two, Jini’s brother Kimong was diagnosed with severe autism. By age eight, he developed grand mal seizures. He hit his head when he was frustrated, flapped his arms when he was excited, and learned only three words: eomma (mom), appa (dad), and nuna (big sister).

As recent immigrants from South Korea, Jini and Kimong’s parents were unable to confidently speak or read English. Their family struggled to keep up with mounting medical bills. In 1990, at age nine, Jini helped to enroll Kimong in Medicaid, protecting her family from debilitating debt.

Fixing American healthcare became Jini’s life’s work, and when she founded her own company, she named it Nuna in honor of Kimong, caregivers, and big sisters everywhere.

Nuna was the natural evolution of Jini’s family’s struggles with the healthcare system and experience with Medicaid. In 2015, we built Medicaid’s first centralized data warehouse, which stores records for over 74.5 million enrollees across the United States. Since then, we’ve expanded our product lines and our team.

Today, we partner with state and federal government agencies, health plans, and provider systems to turn data into insights. Every solution we provide is designed to overcome core obstacles in healthcare—fragmented data, inefficient processes, misaligned incentives, and inconsistent cost and quality information.

Jini Kim

Co-founder and CEO

As a child, Jini learned the frustrating realities of our healthcare system. As an adult, she set out to change it. Prior to founding Nuna in 2010, Jini was a product manager at Google Health, where she developed Google’s genomics strategy and launched Google Public Data. While helping rescue the ailing HealthCare.gov site in 2013, Jini saw the potential for innovation and change on a larger scale within government—and the opportunity to give back to the program that helped protect her family.

Outside of evangelizing data analytics, Jini loves ice cream, archaeology, and running.
