KidneyIntelX risk assessment testing now available to Three Rivers members and clients
Renalytix AI plc (LSE: RENX), the AIM-traded developer of clinical grade artificial intelligence in vitro diagnostics for kidney disease, announces that it has executed a provider network agreement with Three Rivers Provider Network, Inc. (“TRPN”) to cover KidneyIntelX testing for kidney disease patients. Under the agreement, KidneyIntelX tests processed on eligible patients through the RenalytixAI Salt Lake City Utah clinical laboratory facility are now available to both TRPN members and clients.
Founded in 1996, TRPN is the largest and fastest growing proprietary provider organisation (PPO) network in the United States. A PPO contracts with providers, such as RenalytixAI and health insurance plans, to provide better healthcare value for their members.
The TRPN network is currently comprised of more than 1.5 million provider locations, including 5,000 hospitals and 100,000 ancillary care facilities, and more than 200 payers. Through their aggregation and contracting of care services at scale, PPO networks like TRPN can help to accelerate coverage and payment for newly launched tests, medical devices and pharmaceuticals, while maintaining acceptable levels of reimbursement. Over 100 million lives now have access to the TRPN network through Acute Care Hospitals, Surgery Centers, Network Physicians, Ancillary Facilities, MRI Centers, Laboratories, Radiology, Urgent Care Clinics, Home Health, DME, Chiropractors, Physical Therapy, and Mental Health.
Shelley Glick, RenalytixAI Vice President, Market Access, said:
“A provider agreement that supports insurance coverage for a novel prognostic testing solution such as KidneyIntelX is an important consideration for patients and doctors. PPOs are an important avenue for many Americans to get access to high quality healthcare. Partnering with an industry leader like Three Rivers is core to our strategy of providing broad population access to KidneyIntelX.”
Under terms of the provider network agreement, members with Three Rivers Provider Network now have access to KidneyIntelX risk assessment testing. This agreement enables TRPN plan members and their covered clients to receive the benefit of KidneyIntelX testing as a participating service provider.

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.
