About Cricket Health
Cricket Health is a technology-enabled provider of integrated nephrology and dialysis care for people with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). The current CKD/ESRD industry in the United States is completely broken, with over $100B spent annually and where patients end up on the most expensive form of care and the worst outcomes, and little is actually done to slow progression to kidney failure. Through a combination of in-person and virtual interventions, Cricket provides comprehensive multidisciplinary care for kidney disease patients throughout their journey, where our priorities and financial model align with what’s best for patients.
