Kidney Dialysis Avoidance Program

Empowering you to live longer and healthier with nurses nationwide who help prevent at-risk members from progressing towards dialysis.

The Kidney Dialysis Avoidance Program (KDAP) was created because medical research repeatedly indicates that early identification, combined with specialized intervention and management, can significantly delay the progression of chronic kidney disease, while also reducing the subsequent health plan costs associated with management of chronic kidney disease.

The Problem

Medical claims data can identify members at all stages of diagnosed CKD and kidney impairment, but typical Large Case Management models do not have a program that focuses on the issue of kidney disease, end-to-end renal care, or renal cost management solutions.

In fact, most groups do not focus on members until an episodic event occurs, such as a high dollar hospital inpatient stay, Emergency Room visit, or pre-dialysis authorization.

Our Approach

Renalogic is focused on solutions that are proactive and member-centric to achieve healthier outcomes and dialysis cost avoidance, not just cost savings.

Our Registered Nurses work with members to slow the progression of kidney disease, preserve or improve kidney function, improve overall health, and reduce the cost of care for members who might otherwise progress to End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).

“The Kidney Dialysis Avoidance Program provides a unique (and specialized) service to members at-risk for developing or who have chronic kidney disease. Our proprietary algorithms and targeted interventions support our members in reversing, or delaying the progression of their kidney disease. Our high touch and technology driven models of care provides members with access to ongoing monitoring of risk and personalized, dedicated nurse health coaching support services.”
