Strive Health Partners with NextGate to Support Whole-Patient Kidney Care

April 13, 2021

DENVER and PASADENA, Calif., April 13,2021 –Strive Health, the national leader in value-based kidney care, today announced a strategic partnership with NextGate, the global leader in healthcare enterprise identification, to support Strive’s whole-patient solution for kidney disease populations with accurate, consistent patient identification.

Utilizing NextGate’s market-leading Enterprise Master PatientIndex (EMPI) on AmazonWeb Services (AWS) to [JB1] unify and match the right data to the right individual, Strive’s clinical team of Kidney Heroes™will have  access to comprehensive reliable high-quality data and analysis of its thousands of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage kidney disease (ESKD) patients.

Healthcare providers and payors rely on Strive Health’s comprehensive kidney care model of predictive analytics and high-touch care teams to slow disease progression, reduce hospitalizations, engage patients and improve quality of life. The addition of cloud-based patient identification technology from NextGate will support Strive with a complete and accurate view of patient data across the continuum to effectively identify gaps in care, avoid acute events, and ensure the right interventions at the right time. The EMPI will also impact Strive’s ability to effectively track its 15,000kidney patients across six states for population health analytics and quality reporting under value-based care arrangements.

“Strive's mission is to provide the best tech-enabled, high-touch care for chronic and end-stage kidney disease patients. Partnering with NextGate, a trusted industry leader, is crucial to elevating our technology to provide quality whole-person care for patients,” says SarahMorgan, Data Engineering Lead at Strive Health. “We went through a lengthy vendor review process and were thrilled by the options and value-add thatNextGate offers.”

Kidney care in the U.S. has historically been fragmented, and patients have not always experienced the well-orchestrated and personalized care they deserve. Today, CKD affects an estimated 37 million Americans and approximately 90% don’t know they have it. The partnership between NextGate andStrive will serve to deliver a fully connected and de-duplicated kidney care data experience that promotes care quality and operational efficiency, while supporting patients throughout every step of the kidney care journey.

“Consistently connecting the right data to the right individual is a critical requirement in today's digitized healthcare environment to positively influence outcomes and the patient experience,” said Andy Arodit is, CEO of NextGate. “We applaudStrive Health for prioritizing patient identification as the basis for data integrity and personalized care delivery.”
