MIAMI and DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 8, 2021--

Strive Health, the national leader in value-based kidney care, today announced that Conviva Care Centers, a network of more than 100 clinics and 300 primary care physicians that specialize in treating seniors, is expanding its relationship with the company to deliver specialized kidney disease care management services for eligible patients in Daytona and Jacksonville, Fla., and the surrounding areas.

Strive Health’s multidisciplinary care teams work with Conviva’s primary care physicians, providing specialized, technology-enabled care services for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). Strive combines advanced technology with high-touch patient care to slow kidney disease progression, prevent unnecessary and costly hospitalizations, and expand access to optimal therapies such as home dialysis and transplants.

“Strive Health understands the complexities of kidney disease and works closely with our providers to deliver a seamless experience to our patients,” said Steve Lee, MD, president of Conviva Physicians Group. “Our locations in northern Florida face the challenges of both urban and rural environments, necessitating partners that will closely collaborate with our teams and tailor their approach to meet the needs of the individual. Working with Strive Health’s clinicians helps us advance the preventive, personalized health care we offer our patients. We are excited to expand this program.”

Conviva Care Centers and Strive Health announced an initial arrangement in September 2020 focused on eligible patients in South Florida, spanning Palm Beach south through Miami. The program engages patients in managing kidney diseases, aiming to reduce hospitalizations and dialysis crash rates, increase home dialysis utilization, detect kidney disease earlier and connect patients to nephrologists and other specialists where and when it is needed. Through the expansion, Conviva members in Northern Florida will now have access to similar services.

“Strive Health serves as a bridge between nephrology and primary care, delivering transformative and holistic kidney care,” said Chris Riopelle, CEO and co-founder of Strive Health. “Our close collaboration with Conviva has helped elevate the patient experience with this complex chronic condition, and we look forward to expanding these services to more Florida residents and potentially to new Conviva markets in the future.”
