OUR PURPOSE

Transforming kidney stone disease care.

In response to the increasing incidence of Kidney Stone Disease (KSD), we envision transforming care delivery by integrating e-health services into traditional care, embracing a value-based care approach. This shift from the present inefficient equality-based model to a more effective, patient-centered equity and value-based model aims to enhance care in alignment with patients’ daily lives.

Our innovative, hybrid healthcare coordination system is designed to improve individual health and outcomes. It aligns with society’s growing digitalization and the healthcare sector’s growing commitment to equitable care.

OUR VISION

Seven key objectives for personalized kidney stone prevention.

  • Link patients and healthcare providers with worldwide certified health care professionals.
  • Integrate AI technology to enhance automated healthcare workflows and home monitoring.
  • Make home care more user-friendly, flexible, and accessible with advanced digital tools.
  • Enhance prevention, diagnosis, and risk stratification of KSD.
  • Reorganize care to balance hospital and home care, centered around patient needs.
  • Offer customized care plans and coordinated prevention strategies.
  • Provide evidence and data on how technology improves care delivery, clinical outcomes, and satisfaction in patient-centered home care.

Nephrologist

Dr Cristina David, M.D.

A nephrologist and an intensive care physician with a profound interest in renal
pathophysiology. My dedication lies in applying my knowledge to enhance the care of patients facing renal function challenges.

Innovation stands as a crucial component in revolutionizing the healthcare journey for kidney patients. Introducing novel methodologies and technologies is imperative to elevate the standard of care, improve treatment outcomes, and enhance patient experiences. Moreover, the underestimated potential of telehealth in nephrology cannot be overlooked. Telehealth services hold the promise of providing accessible, convenient, and effective care, offering a valuable means of monitoring, education, and support for renal patients. Embracing telehealth initiatives could significantly bridge gaps in care, particularly in remote or underserved areas, fostering a more holistic and inclusive healthcare landscape for kidney patients.
