At Riva Health, you'll work with the cofounder of Siri and a world-class team to achieve our mission to dramatically simplify and personalize disease management – a mission that hits close to home given our own team’s experience with loss due to heart disease.

Hypertension contributes to over 650,000 deaths in the US every year and millions more around the globe.

Our solution combines high touch, virtual care with groundbreaking technology that has a profound impact on an individuals ability to take control over their health.
