Cricket Health has named Geoffrey Clapp as its new chief product officer, the company announced in a press release.

Clapp served as chief technology officer and chief operating officer of the Health Hero Network. Currently, he serves on the board of trustees at Goucher College.
Clapp and the senior Cricket team he will be joining plan to focus on the company’s expansion of its tech-enabled programs and clinical footprint following $24 million in a Series A funding round in September, led by Oak HC/FT.
“Geoffrey brings years of technology, health care and product development expertise to Cricket Health, and we are thrilled to have him join our team,” Arvind Rajan, CEO of Cricket Health, said in the release. “With experience building and growing patient-focused digital health solutions, he will help us achieve our mission of transforming the patient experience while alleviating the burden of kidney disease for patients, providers and payers.”
“Cricket Health is transforming the kidney care system to put the focus back where it should be, on keeping patients healthy, happy — and most important t— at home, rather than at the hospital or dialysis center,” Clapp said. “Cricket’s model leverages the best in data analytics, digital health technology and clinical care, and I look forward to making a difference in the lives of patients around the country.”
