Humana and Strive Health Announce Kidney Disease Care Coordination Services Collaboration In Kentucky and Indiana

Leading health and well-being company Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) and specialized kidney care company Strive Health today announced they are teaming up to offer kidney disease care coordination services for eligible Humana Medicare Advantage and Commercial members in Kentucky and Indiana.

Now in effect, the agreement establishes a clinically-integrated approach to improve health outcomes and quality of life for members with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Strive Health coordinates care with the member’s primary care physician and nephrologist, and other specialists as applicable, and utilizes predictive analytics technology, telehealth services, and home dialysis education and training.

Through the expertise of Strive Health’s renal-specialized clinical teams – which include nurses and nurse practitioners, dieticians, pharmacists, and social workers – the care coordination services aim to detect kidney disease earlier, and initiate and support regular care and treatment routines, to slow disease progression, reduce hospitalizations, and improve quality of life.

“Innovative care delivery models are a core focus for Humana in prioritizing member-centered care that drives improved outcomes,” said Amal Agarwal, M.D., Humana’s Vice President of Transformative Home Solutions. “Humana and Strive Health are proud to advance a more holistic approach to treating chronic kidney and end-stage renal disease. We are mutually dedicated to more seamless care coordination and an emphasis on greater patient engagement, both of which are particularly important as the nation continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic.”
