Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) announced that its early-stage fund, CIT GAP Funds, has invested in Richmond, Virginia-based Kamana, developer of a platform for healthcare employers and professionals to work together to fill jobs more efficiently.

Founded in 2018, the startup was launched by a group of healthcare strategists, travel nurses and developers to help staffing agencies land better contracts for health-centered employees.

The financial terms of the investment were not disclosed, but Kamana said it plans to put the funds toward supporting product road map items such as communication within the platform and expanding its talent management processes.

“Kamana’s founders know from experience how inefficiencies impact the healthcare workforce, and the ability to swiftly connect with a flexible talent pool is crucial for employers,” said Kamana CEO Dave Dworschak in a statement. “We are dedicated to supporting both innovative healthcare employers, as well as individual healthcare professionals who need to manage their careers and keep their personal data safe.”

Kamana’s talent management platform includes an onboarding and automated credential management process that’s accessible on mobile and desktop for nurses and recruiters to complete. For employers, the platform has an admin dashboard for credential and agency management, messaging and more.

Dworschak cofounded the company with Nick Toce, Kamana’s chief design officer; John Modica, RN, the company’s chief customer officer; and Kiere El-Shafie, Kamana’s CTO.

“The leadership team at Kamana has first-hand experience with the problems they are solving, and their history of scaling businesses in healthcare gives them a unique competitive advantage,” said CIT Gap Funds Investment Director Alex Euler. “CIT is confident in Kamana’s mobile-first design, user experience, and overall scalable technology. We are eager to see what 2020 has in store for Kamana.”
