Learn How

Learn how AI can help you promote early diagnosis, slow CKD progression, and anticipate and avoid complications and adverse events. See how AI helps to identify people with undiagnosed CKD or at-risk of rapid progression, predict adverse events due to poor medication adherence, predict CKD-related complications (e.g., hyperkalemia), or identify patients who are likely to initiate dialysis in the next year.

Automatically ingest data from dozens of health data sources including...

Electronic Health Records

EHR data with comprehensive patient histories of vital signs and symptoms, problem lists and chief complaints, tests results, diagnoses and procedures, and prescriptions.

Remote Monitoring Data

Remote monitoring data capture key vital signs and health behaviors (e.g. blood pressure, heart rate, blood glucose, activity levels, etc.).

Social Determinants of Health (SDoH)

Geo-centric data with details about the social and environmental influences on people’s health and outcomes.

What Is CKD?

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a complex condition in which patients experience excessive cardiovascular and other adverse events and carry a heavy burden of morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs. An estimated 37 million people—15% of adults—have CKD and another 20–25 million are at risk for developing it.¹

And yet, CKD remains under-recognized by providers and patients, especially in its early stages when patients are largely asymptomatic. Nine in ten adults with CKD are not aware of their condition and one in two people with extremely low kidney function do not know they have CKD.¹ Healthcare costs increase dramatically as CKD progresses and in later stages, are five to ten times higher than for someone without CKD.² These costs are primarily due to hospitalizations resulting from severe complications that often accompany reduced kidney function.

Why It Matters

Effective interventions can improve outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. For example, an intervention among beneficiaries of a Maryland health plan reduced hospital admissions by 30 to 45% (depending on CKD stage), readmissions by more than 70%, and costs by 20%.³ To expand the use of value-based programs for CKD, CMS recently announced the Advancing American Kidney Health initiative designed to increase value-based models starting in 2020.⁴ AI-based models are ideally suited to help clinicians and care teams in value-based programs by identifying patients to help promote early diagnosis, slow CKD progression, and anticipate and avoid complications and adverse events.

Did You Know…

  • 660,000 people live with kidney failure⁵
  • 37 million adults in the U.S. have CKD, a number that has doubled each of the last two decades¹
  • 9 in 10 adults with mild-to-moderate CKD are not aware of their condition and 25% of them (who also have diabetes) will experience rapid progression within two years¹
