Pager Hires Rita Sharma As Chief Product Officer


Rita Sharma has joined the leadership team of Pager, a leading virtual care and digital health collaboration platform firm, as the Chief Product Officer. In her new position, Sharma will be in charge of overseeing the product team as well as the development, innovation, and implementation of Pager's product strategies and roadmap, as well as its health and wellness platform Onlife Health. Sharma will also concentrate on creating global go-to-market plans and strategies for engagement, navigation, virtual care, well-being, and value-based care.

Sharma comes to Pager from Salesforce, where she served as GM and VP of Product Management for Healthcare & Life Sciences. "We are thrilled to welcome Rita on board to lead Product," said Walter Jin, CEO and Chairman of Pager. "Rita's shared passion for our mission, combined with her successful track record of developing, scaling and growing new products in healthcare for over 20 years, will play a crucial role in our journey ahead."

Sharma oversaw the global development and launch of the company's first healthcare product, Health Cloud, which was aimed at revolutionizing patient and member-centric experiences in healthcare and the life sciences, while he was still employed at Salesforce. She positioned Salesforce as the platform of choice for provider, payer, pharma, and device markets globally and was in charge of Health Cloud's long-term product roadmap and global go-to-market strategy. 

In order to increase the value of the primary Health Cloud platform, she also established a strategic ecosystem of ISV and System Integration partners. Sharma was the Vice President of Marketing & Product Management at Glooko, Inc. before she joined Salesforce, where she oversaw the company's commercial marketing, product management, and customer support activities. Sharma also held a position at Johnson & Johnson, where she oversaw the organization's program for diabetes management innovation.
