New role for ex-Patrick aide

The Patrick diaspora’s business wings continue to spread. Kofi Jones, who was communications chief in the housing and economic development secretariat under Governor Deval Patrick, has opened her own consulting firm with a focus on health innovation.

KJ Health Matters, “a strategic policy, advocacy, and communications firm,” launched last month.

Jones until recently worked at American Well as vice president for government affairs and “telehealth evangelist,” which almost assuredly was not a position at your father’s health innovation company.

The Boston-based KJHM will focus on analysis, advocacy, and branding, Jones said.
