Cricket Health is a specialty kidney care provider

We believe in patient intervention well before kidney failure when there is still opportunity to improve quality of life, health outcomes, and control costs.

We are combining and fully integrating traditional medical practices with new modes of technology-enabled education and telemedicine into one seamless experience leading to healthier patient outcomes.

Founded in 2015, we are based in San Francisco, CA. The company’s team and advisors include leaders in healthcare, technology and design from Stanford, UCSF, DaVita, and LinkedIn.
