Meet the
People Behind Novocardia

We’re on a mission to transform cardiovascular disease care in this country — how it’s delivered and how patients experience it. 

We’ve built a team of people with proven track records and the passion to make real change. And we have decades of experience as clinicians and leaders — at health plans, provider organizations, and in federal and state government.
