January 12, 2021

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with the new chief financial officer of Strive Health, a value-based kidney care company that works with payers and providers to create an integrated care delivery system for chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). We discuss the changes coming to nephrology practices, as well as new ways of looking at the whole patient to halt the slide to irreversible ESRD.

In 2021, CMS is launching new payment models to address the high cost of care for Medicare beneficiaries with kidney disease and to improve patient outcomes. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are among the most expensive conditions in Medicare; about 37 million Americans have CKD and 725,000 have ESRD. The situation is expected to get worse as the population ages, rates of diabetes and obesity soar, and demand for dialysis increases.

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Brandi Riddle, who recently joined Strive Health as its chief financial officer.
