About us
It is a momentous time for value-based kidney care, and we are excited to be a part of much needed change. Chronic Kidney Disease is a relatively under diagnosed condition that creates great suffering and burden on society. Out of every 5 dollars of Medicare expense, 1 dollar is spent on the CKD patient. Headquartered in New York, pulseData's mission is to create Machine Learning systems to scale care workflows and to proactively address the explosive growth of kidney disease patients that will fall under value based care.
