How It Works
Our approach to managing kidney disease
Chronic Kidney Disease Can Be Managed
Identification, intervention and treatment
We help our customers identify high-risk patients well before kidney failure and focus on preserving kidney function as long as possible. We keep patients out of the hospital, and ensure optimal, prepared transitions to end-stage renal disease. We provide support for all potential paths, including preemptive transplants, conservative care, and both home and empowered in-center dialysis.
Rejecting The Status Quo
Realigning patients, clinicians, and payors
Our clinical priorities and financial incentives are aligned with the best outcomes and quality of life for patients, more satisfying work for clinicians, and the lowest costs for payors.
A unique approach to kidney care
We are a specialty kidney care provider whose top priority is delaying progression of kidney disease. For those patients who do progress, we help them and support them on any treatment they choose, including transplant and conservative care.
Patient Identification + Risk-stratification
Detecting high risk patients using state of the art data analytics
We use proprietary data analytics to identify high-risk patients and intervene as early as possible, creating the best outcomes for patients and avoiding downstream costs for payors.
Providing remote, in-person, and at-home care
Our nephrologists are empowered to help patients slow the progression of their CKD, avoid the emergency room, and effectively manage their condition.
Multidisciplinary Care Team
Coordinating care and managing outcomes that matter most
Our multidisciplinary care team works with patients, enhancing and extending the work of the nephrologist into the field while providing remote monitoring of vitals, training and patient-centered care.
Digital Education + Peer Community
Supporting patient knowledge with engaging content and peer support
Our interactive patient curriculum features engaging and easy-to-understand video content from renowned clinicians and other patients. Patients also benefit from an online peer support community and patient mentors who provide critical insights into managing CKD effectively.
Providing home and empowered in-center dialysis care
If kidney function can no longer be prolonged and transplant and palliative care are not options, we work with patients to determine the best type of dialysis for them, whether home or in-center, and provide training and care at our licensed clinics.
We’ve produced industry-leading results with our new model

“Cricket has been a great comfort to me as I have traveled this journey. The information and peer support is absolutely invaluable. Cricket is a place where everyone cares about you: a safe place to ask all the questions you forgot (or were too embarrassed) to ask and share your real feelings. You are not alone.”
