RenalytixAI Reaches Milestone of KidneyIntelX Commercial Testing with Mount Sinai Health System
NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Renalytix AI plc (LSE: RENX) (NASDAQ: RNLX), an artificial intelligence-enabled in vitro diagnostics company, focused on optimizing clinical
management of kidney disease to drive improved patient outcomes and advance value-based care, announces the commercial launch of the KidneyIntelX clinical test reporting platform within the Mount
Sinai Health System (Mount Sinai) in New York City. KidneyIntelX risk assessment of progressive decline in kidney function or kidney failure, including education support for treating clinicians, is
now commercially available for patients with early stage diabetic kidney disease (DKD).
In addition to patient testing and risk assessment, a central component of this launch milestone is the physician education and support program developed in close collaboration with leadership of the Mount Sinai Departments of Medicine and Population Health Science and Policy, with input from patient advocacy groups and the broader clinical community. This expert experience is reflected in the design of the KidneyIntelX test report and the newly launched product website – www.kidneyintelx.com. We believe this education and support program will be an important resource to help improve care for early stage DKD patients at Mount Sinai and support future deployments of KidneyIntelX.
Agreements with Laboratory Corporation of America and a national medical logistics provider were entered into in calendar Q3 to support sample collection at five patient service centers servicing Mount Sinai patients. The Company intends to scale this process with laboratory service providers and logistics providers across multiple territories in the United States to ensure patient blood samples can be efficiently and securely delivered to RenalytixAI laboratories in New York, New York and Salt Lake City, Utah.
In June 2020, the Company announced that it received a clinical laboratory permit from the New York State Department of Health to provide commercial testing of KidneyIntelX. The Company is currently licensed to provide testing services for patients in 48 states. With the commercial launch at Mount Sinai, RenalytixAI expects revenue generation to increase in the near-term.
RenalytixAI plans to continue to add to the quality and capability of the KidneyIntelX platform through ongoing integration with healthcare system information technology platforms to facilitate ordering, educational programs, laboratory and logistical operations, and other core program elements.
