Release primary care capacity with home testing

Reduce chronic disease management backlogs and improve kidney health outcomes with digital screening

Funded Programmes Available in partnership with NHSx, the Accelerated Access Collaborative and the National Institute for Health Research, are offering substantial funding opportunities to release primary care capacity by allowing people at increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD) to complete their annual urine test at home.

Staff in participating GP practices will no longer have to process urine samples and vulnerable patients at increased risk of contracting COVID don’t have to visit the surgery to take their test.

This nationally significant programme, announced by Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock, uses tried and tested technology to improve outcomes in essential annual kidney health testing for people with diabetes and hypertension, closing gaps around poor compliance with national recommendations on testing which is known to be beneficial in the early detection and prevention of CKD.

Funding packages of 50% to 100% are helping this COVID safe chronic kidney disease early detection service catalyse the national restoration and recovery process by providing GPs with an easily deliverable solution to clear chronic disease management backlogs remotely.

Clinical-Grade Testing from Home

The CKD early detection service increases adherence to annual urinary albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR) testing, which is known to be beneficial in the early detection and prevention of CKD, is recommended by NICE, and monitored by the National Diabetes Audit.

The test is built around the existing ACR point of care dipstick. It measures semi quantitative analysis of microalbumin (10 – 150 mg/L), creatinine (10 – 300mg/dL) and albumin to creatinine ratio (mg/g).

Results are expressed as ACR normal (<30mg/g), ACR abnormal (30-300mg/g) or ACR high abnormal (>300mg/g).

The product is CE marked, GDPR compliant, and follows industry standards for privacy and safety.

Call for Expressions of Interest

We are seeking immediate expressions of interest from GP Practices, PCNs, CCGs, STPs, and other forward-thinking partners interested in empowering their patients and improving care through an evidence-based, time-saving, and patient-focused digital technology.

The availability of funding varies regionally ranging from 50% to 100% subsidies.  Please express your interest before 5 pm on 11th June. Once submitted, we will be in touch to discuss the next steps towards releasing these benefits for your patient population at scale.
