The in-home care program is headed by Sophia Chang, MD, Chief Clinical Informatics Officer and practicing primary care physician at Clover, and Kumar Dharmarajan, MD, Chief Scientific Officer and practicing geriatrician at Clover.

“Through this program, we are taking full accountability for our patients’ care and health outcomes,” said Dharmarajan. “Our number one priority is to provide exceptional in-home primary care, and we’ve built a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals who are responsive 24/7 to achieve this goal. To do this, we are using data, technology, and care innovations to further improve our members’ lives.”

Clover Health leverages its cloud platform to collect, structure, and analyze longitudinal health and behavioral data.
