The agreement, now in effect, is designed to improve the health of individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and better their quality of life by detecting the condition earlier; slowing disease progression; and informing the patient about care options, which may include home dialysis. In conjunction with the patient's primary care physician, nephrologist, or other specialists, Healthmap Solutions works to eliminate gaps in care through a patient-centric approach, streamlining provider communication and coordinating care. Healthmap Solutions nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, and social workers bring a multi-disciplinary approach in providing patient education; health and medication assessments; and counseling.
“It’s a priority for us at Humana to offer a more integrated care model that looks at the individual holistically, and takes into account the member’s personal lifestyle and needs,” said
Individuals with CKD cannot properly filter blood, causing waste and fluid levels that can be dangerously high. Because failure to appropriately manage kidney disease may cause worsening health outcomes and considerable symptoms, a proactive approach to kidney health is critical for an individual’s overall health and well-being.
“Because both of our organizations believe strongly in the importance of actively working to defer chronic kidney disease progression, we’re very pleased to collaborate with Humana,” said
Healthmap Solutions is a specialty population health management company with a specific Kidney Health Management (KHM) solution for patients with kidney disease, serving health plans, as well as accountable care organizations (ACOs) and provider groups seeking value-based solutions that improve the clinical care and financial performance for high-risk, high-cost kidney patient populations. The company has a rich history forged in data and analytics, having begun as a healthcare data clearinghouse, adding robust healthcare analytics expertise. Today Healthmap Solutions uses that experience to power a complex Kidney Health Management program with its clinical experts. The company also provides similar integrated programs across a full range of specialty population health management. For more information: healthmapsolutions.com.
