CareDx Expands into the Pre-Transplant Kidney Space through TX Connect
TX Connect adds 19,000 patient referrals for kidney transplant and continues CareDx’s focus on the patient journey
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareDx, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNA), a leading precision medicine company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value healthcare solutions for transplant patients and caregivers, announced that it has also acquired TX Services, LLC, provider of TX Connect, as part of its acquisition of TransChart in January 2021. TX Connect is a cloud-based service that allows nephrologists and dialysis centers to electronically submit referrals to transplant programs, closely follow and assist patients through the transplant waitlist process, and ultimately, through transplantation.
TX Connect currently manages more than 19,000 patients and is fully integrated with TransChart, a transplant electronic medical records platform. TX Connect deepens CareDx’s offering in the pre-transplant space, which already includes XynManagement, a waitlist management service currently serving 6,000 transplant patients in the U.S. Further, it builds on CareDx’s digital portfolio, which includes XynQAPI transplant quality management solutions, and Ottr, another industry-leading transplant electronic medical record software platform.
“CareDx is now poised to better serve dialysis centers that need to get more of its kidney patients on a transplant waitlist, as mandated by the Advancing American Kidney Health Initiative,” said Reg Seeto, CEO of CareDx. “TX Connect will help more patients with getting on the waitlist to their eventual transplant. Adding this important service to our offerings will help us provide better care at every critical step of the transplant patient journey.”
“We are honored to work with CareDx to improve workflows between various care providers in what is often a very long and complicated process for transplant patients,” said Martha Collins, Managing Principal, TX Services. “This service will not only facilitate the secure communication and exchange of patient information between care providers, but it’s also a key component to optimal care and treatment of transplant patients at every step of the way.”
