DaVita IKC Programs

DaVita® Integrated Kidney Care (IKC) is committed to the vision of providing integrated care to all patients with late-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD)—to enhance patient quality of life, improve clinical outcomes and reduce overall costs. We partner with health plans, health systems, nephrologists and government entities across the nation to provide the following integrated care programs to more than 25,000 patients each month.

Renal Population Health Management 

Our renal population health program integrates and manages care before and during the transition to dialysis or transplant for patients with late-stage CKD and manages care inside and outside the dialysis clinic for patients with ESRD who depend on life-sustaining dialysis. Learn more >>

ESRD Seamless Care Organizations (ESCOs)

DaVita IKC participates in three ESCOs—Medicare’s first-ever disease-specific accountable care organizations—in collaboration with our partners: nephrologists, DaVita® dialysis clinics and health system ESCO joint venture partners. Learn more >>

Chronic Special Needs Plans (C-SNPs)

DaVita IKC operates and takes full risk on total cost-of-care and quality for C-SNPs in 14 major metropolitan areas—Medicare Advantage plans specifically designed for dialysis and kidney transplant patients—in collaboration with our health plan partners. Learn more >>

Kidney Smart

Kidney Smart is a no-cost community education resource for patients with late stage CKD and those who are in the process of beginning dialysis. Visit www.kidneysmart.org to learn more.
