Israeli diagnostic solutions developer Healthy io has FDA approval for the use of its smartphone-based albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) test to diagnose chronic kidney disease (CKD).

• Healthy io kit allows self-tests at home using the included FDA-approved stick, which can be dipped into a cup of urine.

• From there a smartphone camera scans the results.

• Healthy io claims its computer vision algorithms and calibration method make accurate testing as easy as taking a selfie.

• The doctor or health system decides whether the results are uploaded directly to a patient’s electronic medical record so the doctor can view them immediately or if patients can have direct access and see the results right away.

• Healthy io looks for signs of early kidney disease and urinary tract infections.

• In Israel and the U.K, they are currently using the technology to detect possible complications in pregnancy.

Healthy io is poised to do well in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. By using its technology, consumers don’t need to go to the lab or the doctor’s office to get the test done in person. All of that risks exposure to the virus.
