Managing ESRD Risk under Value-Based Reimbursement

End stage renal disease (ESRD) patients—one of the smallest, most medically complex, costly and fragmented patient populations—pose a significant challenge to health systems migrating to value-based reimbursement (VBR) and alternative payment models. Does it make sense for health systems to own ESRD risk? Who is, ultimately, the natural owner of risk for ESRD patients?

This white paper from VillageHealth DM, LLC (d/b/a DaVita Integrated Kidney Care), covers the unique characteristics of the ESRD population and the specific capabilities required to manage them. Its objective is to provide health systems with the context necessary to respond to the questions above and, ultimately, to make an informed decision on how the ESRD patient population fits into their VBR journey.
