Humana and Healthmap Solutions Sign Agreement for Kidney Disease Care Coordination Services in Florida

June 2, 2020

Leading health and well-being company Humana Inc. and Healthmap Solutions, Inc., a specialty population health management company with kidney health expertise, last week announced a collaboration to provide care coordination services for Humana Medicare Advantage and Commercial members in Florida who have kidney disease. The agreement, now in effect, is designed to improve the health of individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and better their quality of life by detecting the condition earlier; slowing disease progression; and informing the patient about care options, which may include home dialysis. In conjunction with the patient’s primary care physician, nephrologist, or other specialists, Healthmap Solutions works to eliminate gaps in care through a patient-centric approach, streamlining provider communication and coordinating care. Healthmap Solutions nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, and social workers bring a multi-disciplinary approach in providing patient education; health and medication assessments; and counseling. “It’s a priority for us at Humana to offer a more integrated care model that looks at the individual holistically, and takes into account the member’s personal lifestyle and needs,” said Amal Agarwal, M.D., Humana’s Vice President of Transformative Home Solutions. “We are committed to breaking down barriers to coordinated care for our members with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease, which is especially critical during this global pandemic.” Individuals with CKD cannot properly filter blood, causing waste and fluid levels that can be dangerously high. Because failure to appropriately manage kidney disease may cause worsening health outcomes and considerable symptoms, a proactive approach to kidney health is critical for an individual’s overall health and well-being. “Because both of our organizations believe strongly in the importance of actively working to defer chronic kidney disease progression, we’re very pleased to collaborate with Humana,” said Joe Vattamattam, Healthmap Solutions’ Chief Executive Officer. “Healthmap Solutions looks forward to applying our expertise in utilizing clinical data and analytics, and our care management experience, to help Humana members stay as healthy as possible.”
