Improve Patient Quality of Life While Reducing Costs
To successfully manage risk, it’s important to manage outlier populations—such as renal patients. While small in number—only 0.2 percent of the U.S. population and 1 percent of Medicare beneficiaries—renal patients consistently fall into the top five percent of the most medically complex and costly patient populations. Successfully managing the renal population requires extraordinary scale, routine access to patients, deep relationships with nephrologists and extensive renal specific care management capabilities and infrastructure.
VillageHealth, a subsidiary of DaVita, has a distinct advantage in managing risk for renal patients because we know kidney care and have been taking full quality and cost-of-care risk on the renal population for the last decade. In addition, we have consistent access to patients who dialyze for 12 to 15 hours a week in DaVita’s more than 2,300 dialysis clinics, which serve as patient-centered medical homes.
Renal Population Health Management
VillageHealth’s Renal Population Health Management Program can help integrate and manage care:
- Before and during the transition to dialysis for patients with late-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD), and
- Inside and outside the clinic for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD), who depend on life-sustaining dialysis.
|Patients in our Renal Population Health Management program can lead better, healthier lives and our partners are achieving savings from the reduction in total cost of care.
