Coforma

Where progress is designed.

We’re Coforma.

We’ve honed a modern, agile, user-centered approach that elevates human needs through thoughtfully-designed systems and products.

From articulating the unique needs of American Indian and Alaska Native patients through service blueprints that inform future health IT investments to improving the way governments consume COVID-19 mobility data through a more accessible and user-friendly tool, we’re dedicated to reshaping the way communities access and utilize technology products. Together.

Our cross-functional team works closely with each other and with our government, nonprofit, and commercial partners to research, design, and build better products and services.

Company Background

Founded in 2017, Coforma is co-owned by Eduardo Ortiz, CEO, and Ashleigh Axios, CXO. We employ more than 100 talented creators and business operations leaders. Our leadership has decades of experience in transforming and modernizing government digital services from a civic service mindset, and a strong record of developing innovative technology solutions for government, enterprise, and nonprofits.

We’re a minority-owned small business and 10% Veterans. To date, we've helped improve access to quality healthcare, connected families in crisis at the US border, researched improvements to Veteran care, provided greater access to civic tools, used technology to tell previously told untold stories, and more.
