RenCare is a digital health startup offering a holistic renal support platform in easing End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients in their transition from dialysis centers to home dialysis. ESRD is a condition marked by a complete loss of kidney function. It affects approximately 800,000 individuals in the US with an incidence of 130,000 new cases per year and a mortality rate of 16%. There is currently no cure for ESRD and patients must either undergo dialysis or receive a kidney transplant. ESRD continues to impose a disproportionate burden on Medicare and federal health services. As the only chronic condition specifically required to be covered by Medicare, and accounting for a staggering $30 billion per year 7% of the Medicare annual budget, reducing costs and improving outcomes in the ESRD patient population has become a top priority for the US government.
