CLEVELAND, OH  //  Sep. 26, 2023 — Journey Biosciences, a digital health company, has been honored as a finalist for the Digital Health Awards, presented by the Digital Health Hub Foundation.

These innovative tools confront a challenging diabetes complication: kidney disease.

Their solutions empower health systems to improve patient outcomes and drive revenue by identifying at-risk populations and enabling early, preventative interventions.  

“Being selected as a finalist highlights our commitment to partnering with health systems, health plans, providers, and patients to change how diabetes complications are identified and managed,” said Journey Biosciences CEO Adam Graybill. “Our thanks to the Digital Health Hub Foundation for this recognition. This is truly an honor.”

The problem: 

  • Common: One in three people with diabetes develops kidney disease.
  • Asymptomatic: Usually silent, ~ 90% of patients are unaware they have kidney disease.
  • Costly: Over $40B is spent annually on diabetes-driven kidney disease in the US.  
  • The Solution: Early identification drives improved clinical and financial outcomes. One in three people with diabetes develops kidney disease. 

"This year's competition has been like nothing we have ever seen. We are very excited for our award show, where we will have the opportunity to celebrate those transforming the future of health!" stated Mark H. Goldstein, Chairman of the Digital Health Hub Foundation.
