About Carda

Carda Health is building the world’s first patient-centered virtual heart clinic. We started with cardiac rehab because only 10% of qualifying Americans attend, resulting in complications for patients and at least $190B in costs to the US health system. Our leading heart rehab clinic allows patients to complete engaging, compassionate, and life-saving care from home. We now work with some of America’s largest and top-ranked hospitals and most innovative insurers. We are fortunate to be backed by some of the best investors in the business who have also backed the likes of Livongo, Mammoth Biosciences, and Ro to name a few.

Carda is a team of clinicians, mathematicians, repeat entrepreneurs, and engineers. And one recovering financier. Our united belief is that technology and data, when applied ethically and compassionately, can transform individuals’ lives and fundamentally change even the most entrenched industries. Carda was founded by Harry and Andrew, two friends from Wharton who share a family history of heart disease and personal experience with cardiac rehab.
