National Kidney Foundation Spring Clinical Meeting (26 March 2020)
Thomas Goss, PharmD, Senior Vice President, Boston Healthcare Associates, will deliver a presentation titled Evaluation of Payer Budget Impact Associated with the Use of Artificial Intelligence in vitro Diagnostic, KidneyIntelX™, to Modify DKD Progressionduring the Late Breaking Abstract session at the National Kidney Foundation’s Spring Clinical Meeting. The presentation will highlight the significant cost savings associated with the implementation of KidneyIntelX™ in large health care system patient populations in the United States. The presentation is based on a comprehensive economic model developed by Boston Healthcare Associates utilizing peer reviewed clinical data to estimate the costs associated with chronic kidney disease progression in the U.S. The presentation session will be held on Thursday, 26 March 2020 at 4:15 PM ET. A summary of the presentation results will be made available on the Company’s website.
Thomas Goss, Senior Vice President at Boston Healthcare Associates Inc, commented: “The results suggest substantial cost savings can be achieved using KidneyIntelX™ to assess CKD patient populations at risk of rapid kidney function decline and/or kidney failure under a number of different scenarios tested.”
An abstract summarizing the results will also be published in the May 2020 issue of the American Journal of Kidney Disease (www.ajkd.org), the official journal of the National Kidney Foundation, which is recognized worldwide as a leading source of information devoted to clinical nephrology practice and clinical research.
NKF’s Spring Clinical Meeting gathers more than 3,000 nephrology healthcare professionals from across the United States to learn about the newest developments related to all aspects of nephrology practice.

About Kidney Disease
Kidney disease is now recognised as a public health epidemic affecting over 850 million people globally. The Centers for Disease Control estimates there that 15% of United States adults or 37 million people currently have kidney disease. It is reported that 9 out of 10 adults with chronic kidney disease do not know they have it and 1 out of 2 people with very low kidney function who are not on dialysis do not know they have CKD*. Kidney disease is referred to as a “silent killer” because it often has no symptoms and can go undetected until a very advanced stage. Each year kidney disease kills more people than breast and prostate cancer. Every day 13 patients die in the United States while waiting for a kidney transplant.
RenalytixAI is a developer of artificial intelligence-enabled clinical in vitro diagnostic solutions for kidney disease, one of the most common and costly chronic medical conditions globally. The Company’s products are being designed to make significant improvements in kidney disease diagnosis, transplant management, clinical care, patient stratification for drug clinical trials, and drug target discovery.
