Cricket Health unveils value-based kidney care model for MA plans -

A program from startup kidney care provider Cricket Health is designed for MA plans managing care for patients with end-stage renal disease who are transitioning from traditional Medicare. MA plans can use Cricket’s analytics platform to identify members at high risk for kidney disease. They are then assigned a care team that includes a nurse, a pharmacist, a social worker, a dietitian and a patient peer mentor. Home visits will be offered to high-risk patients and the system is supposed to reduce referrals, boost the use of home dialysis and cut back on unneeded care. Cricket states members can connect with the care team over the phone or virtually. The goals of the program are to slow the progression of kidney disease and support patients in accessing services.
