A proven care model that delivers results and lowers costs

We help payers deliver stage-specific care to those who need it most, reducing costs and improving kidney disease outcomes.

We’re an industry-leading provider of value-based kidney care with a clinically-proven approach to managing chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). We help payers and providers shift their entire approach to kidney disease upstream, enabling them to intervene early and deliver stage-specific care to those who need it most, ultimately reducing costs and improving kidney disease outcomes.

More than half of late-stage CKD is undiagnosed, and many diagnosed patients are unspecified.

By identifying these cases and intervening well before kidney failure, Cricket Health’s care team can more effectively treat the disease and ease the transition into renal replacement therapy, resulting in improved health outcomes for patients and substantial reductions in total cost of care for plans. We also improve the member experience by providing your patients with CKD access to a community of individuals undergoing treatment for CKD. Together, they can engage in conversations about their care and learn from each other’s experiences.

Proprietary process and personalized care roadmap.

We identify patients earlier and provide a curated patient experience to those who need it most. By focusing on those who are most at risk for progressing to kidney failure, we can improve health outcomes and reduce costs. And we're willing to put our fees at risk to prove it.

As an innovator in kidney care, we are driving industry leading results on behalf of our customers and patients.
