‘Own your health’ with Hylid Diagnostics

Hylid Diagnostics (HyliDx) will improve the lives of millions of kidney disease patients, save healthcare systems billions of dollars, and produce stellar returns for early investors

The problem: A vicious and costly cycle of chronic disease

The total US Heathcare cost of the three related diseases in the image—comprising CardioRenal Metabolic Syndrome—is $388 billion

Diabetes costs and outcomes have improved with internet-connected home blood tests and remote care

However, chronic kidney disease (CKD) and heart failure (HF) still suffer from:

  • High and growing costs (> diabetes), largely due to unnecessary hospitalization
  • Poor outcomes—low quality of life and productivity, high mortality
  • No effective home testing or remote care capability

    The solution: HyliDx home testing and remote care platform

    • Simple, lab-accurate blood tests for chronic disease monitoring
    • Test results within 5 min from a small, finger-prick sample of blood
    • Results immediately uploaded, via our HyliDx eHealth patient app, to electronic medical records and remote caregivers
    • Patients and caregivers can communicate, by messaging or virtual visit, to enhance patient engagement in therapy
    • HyliDx Cloud AI flags abnormal data or trends, and eventually predicts and helps avoid complications/hospitalizations
    • The first HyliDx home tests are for monitoring chronic kidney disease (CKD)

    Our first target: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

    Sufferers in US, Canada, and Europe

    Total treatment cost

    The use: Main applications of the HyliDx system for CKD

    Patients with advanced CKD

    • To delay onset of costly kidney failure, particularly in remote areas
    • 20-25M in North America and Europe

    Patients on dialysis

    • More than 1M on dialysis in NA, EU
    • Dialysis patients need routine monitoring, which is, currently, especially difficult with home dialysis

    Doctors' offices

    • To save existing CKD patients extra travel to a blood lab prior to their appointments, and to improve early-CKD diagnosis rates (allowing more time for treatment)

    High-risk CKD patients at any stage

    • For medication dosing/monitoring, and for vulnerable patients on release from hospital to avoid costly readmission

    The opportunity

    $50B in cost savings

    In the US and Canada alone, HyliDx can save healthcare more than $50B in treatment costs
