Integrating Care for Patients with Kidney Disease

We passionately believe that integrated care should be the standard for all people with kidney disease. The shift to value-based reimbursement is helping to accelerate the opportunity for more patients to benefit from integrated care. The primary objective of DaVita® Integrated Kidney Care (IKC) is for patients to live a healthier and higher quality life.

Patients with late-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) are among the most vulnerable and medically complex chronic populations. Integrating care for people with kidney disease involves coordinating care before and during the transition to dialysis or transplant and then inside and outside of the dialysis clinic to achieve better clinical outcomes and improve patient quality of life. When done right, integrated care can translate into significant cost savings for the greater healthcare system—including payors, providers and taxpayers—and ultimately patients themselves.

For more than two decades, DaVita IKC has led the industry in providing proven, renal population health management. As the country’s largest renal NCQA-accredited provider, we currently impact the lives of more than 25,000 patients each month through our health plan and health system partnerships, as well as our Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans (C-SNPs) and ESRD Seamless Care Organizations (ESCOs).
