Mike Uchrin is the CEO & Co-Founder of Monogram Health, an innovative, exciting new company that’s transforming one of the most complex and underserved areas of healthcare: managing chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Monogram partners with health plans to fill a systemic gap in kidney disease care with a new, in-home, evidence-based model that improves patient outcomes and quality of life while dramatically reducing costs for the health care system.
One in 7 adults suffer from chronic kidney disease and ESRD, and the cost of covering people with kidney disease represents 20% — or $114 billion — of traditional Medicare expenditures. In our discussion today, Mike shares how Monogram is creatively and proactively addressing this national care challenge.
