Why Minuteful Kidney

Increased albuminuria in at-risk populations multiplies the risk for adverse outcomes and cardiovascular events. CKD often shows no symptoms in its early stages.

When detected early and managed, progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and incidence of cardiovascular events can be decreased.

  • Quick, easy and fully-funded implementation: once onboarded, Healthy.io will manage the entire testing process to easily get members back into appropriate care.
  • Easing the workload: Address backlogs in chronic disease management without affecting your workload.
  • Quality care: Test results are securely shared with primary care providers for follow-up.
