How to close the HEDIS® kidney gap with home testing
Boost adherence, reduce costs, and delight members with Minuteful Kidney
Implement the new kidney health quality measure
The new Kidney Health Evaluation for Patients with Diabetes (KED) measure requires that at-risk members take an annual urine ACR test in addition to a blood eGFR test. But the vast majority aren't doing the urine test, and average quality performance could plummet from 85% to 49% as a result. Reach the untested by enabling them to test at home.

Using Minuteful Kidney
The Minuteful Kidney test app and kit allow people to test themselves at home for signs of CKD and receive immediate clinical results. Using colorimetric analysis, computer vision, and AI we transform the smartphone camera into a clinical-grade medical device. The app walks the user through a simple test, making it as easy as snapping a photo.
To maintain high performance in the KED era, health plans need to rethink how they engage with their members. Using Minuteful Kidney health plans have increased ACR testing adherence up to 50% among untested populations. That adherence boost is crucial to closing the new KED measure.
Chronic Kidney Disease doesn’t have specific symptoms in the early stages. When it comes to health sovereignties, how do we empower individuals to take charge of their own health? [This] allows people access to care, where they want it: in the comfort of their own home.
