SEATTLE–(Jan 15, 2018) – Echo Health Ventures (EHV), a strategic collaboration of Cambia Health Solutions and Mosaic Health Solutions, announced today the completion of an investment in Strive Health (Strive), a new company launched to fundamentally change the lives of kidney disease patients through early engagement, comprehensive coordinated care, and expanded treatment options.
“Strive’s new integrated approach to kidney care will be transformative for millions of patients with kidney disease and we are delighted to partner with EHV in this effort,” said Chris Riopelle, CEO of Strive Health. “The experience that EHV and its Parents bring will significantly accelerate our ability to change how kidney care works in America today.”
