The current standard of kidney disease falls short – but it doesn’t have to. Strive Health and our partners are changing how we treat kidney disease.

About Us

The current standard of kidney care is too little, too late. Today, kidney care focuses almost entirely on ESKD and in-center dialysis, missing the primary drivers of high cost and poor outcomes.

Strive is changing the kidney care paradigm to identify patients earlier, prioritize the right care at the right time and drive better outcomes – all while lowering costs. 

Strive Health is the nation’s leader in value-based kidney care and partner of choice for innovative healthcare payors and providers seeking to improve the lives of their kidney patients.

 

Mission & Values

Strive delivers compassionate kidney care the way it should be done. We emphasize data-driven insights, high-touch care, prevention and next generation dialysis services.  

Our guiding values align Strivers on how we serve patients, partners and the broader community and include:

  • Care for Others First
  • Innovation
  • Resilience
  • Tenacity
  • Fun

What Our Partners Are Saying

SSM Health is committed to improving the lives of our patients and the health of our communities, especially those who are most vulnerable.  By partnering with like-minded organizations like Strive Health, we are able to rapidly transform care delivery to better meet the needs of those we serve. We are thrilled to be able to offer this unprecedented level of kidney care to our communities.

Carter Dredge Chief Transformation Officer at SSM Health System

Innovative care delivery models are a core focus for Humana in prioritizing member-centered care that drives improved outcomes.  Humana and Strive Health are proud to advance a more holistic approach to treating chronic kidney and end-stage renal disease.

Amal Agarwal, M.D. Vice President of Transformative Home Solutions at Humana

At Independence we are always looking for new, innovative approaches to improve our members’ wellbeing. This is especially important for our Medicare Advantage members who are living with chronic health conditions. That is why we are so proud to be working with Strive Health, an organization that we believe will deliver the preventive, personalized health care our members with chronic kidney disease and end stage renal disease need and deserve.

Dr. Heidi Syropoulos Medical Director for Government Markets at Independence Blue Cross

It’s important that we help our members with chronic conditions receive coordinated care, delay or prevent the need for dialysis, and improve their quality of life.  Advanced kidney disease has long been challenging to treat. Working with FMCNA and Strive Health, Blue Cross NC is bringing an advanced level of care to help our members who need it most.

Von Nguyen, MD Chief Medical Officer at Blue Cross NC

Kidney disease is a large-scale health problem that nephrologists are best equipped to manage, and we recognize that the future of nephrology is value-based. The opportunity to participate in risk contracts offers massive potential for NANI to improve patient care, enhance the physician experience and grow the value of our practice to our patients. Strive brings a shared commitment and a proven track record in value-based kidney care, and we are excited to build a long-standing strategic partnership with them as we continue to grow.

Brian O’Dea Chief Executive Officer at NANI

People living with kidney disease require a more person-focused and holistic treatment approach.  Strive Health’s comprehensive and proactive care approach will help us deliver on our goal to make health care better, simpler and more affordable for our members and customers. We are excited to partner with Strive to create a new approach to this disease.

Marion Couch Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Health Care Solutions at Regence

Strive’s solution is integrated into our practice, which allows our clinicians to adapt for these models while having the support of Strive’s robust infrastructure.  We are confident that this new approach will allow us to improve outcomes, deliver a better patient experience and lower costs.

Dr. Fahd M. Al-Saghir Nephrologist and President at Michigan Kidney Consultants

Delivering kidney care through the old fee-for-service model is simply unsustainable. The best way to improve outcomes and reduce costs is to take a more comprehensive approach, aligning with partners like Strive and SSM Health, who provide essential resources and infrastructure.

Dr. Gary Singer Nephrologist and Sr. Partner at Midwest Nephrology Associates

Providers are interested in intervening sooner to help patients with chronic kidney disease access the appropriate education and decision-making tools necessary to improve their daily lives. By partnering with Strive, we’re enhancing our ability to transform the experience for patients with advanced kidney disease.

Dr. Michael Margolis Medical Director of Evolent Care Partners

With Strive, we have found an organization that enables us to enhance our ability to deliver whole-person care to our patients with kidney disease anywhere anytime. Together, we bring a proven innovative clinical model to our communities that integrates with our current model of care.
