Renal Population Health Management

The Renal Population Health program of VillageHealth DM, LLC (d/b/a DaVita Integrated Kidney Care), can help integrate and manage care: 
  • Before and during the transition to dialysis for patients with late-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) 
  • Inside and outside the clinic for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD), who depend on life-sustaining dialysis

Our trained integrated care team collaborates with patients, caretakers, physicians and dialysis care teams to establish and manage a care plan to meet the unique medical, social and behavioral needs of each patient. By focusing on the root causes of unnecessary hospitalizations such as unplanned dialysis starts, infection, fluid overload and medication management, our care teams can help reduce hospitalizations and improve the overall health of CKD and ESRD patients.


What Makes Our Program Unique?

The foundation of our Renal Population Health program is our integrated care model, which is supported by predictive analytics, renal-specific care protocols, a comprehensive technology platform and access to patients while they dialyze. Our innovative and proven care model has delivered clinical and financial excellence across our health plan and health system partnerships, full-risk Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans (C-SNPs) and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid ESRD Seamless Care Organizations (ESCOs).

The DaVita Integrated Kidney Care (IKC) Renal Population Health program relies on our:

  • Deep understanding of dialysis center operations and access to patients while they treat at their clinic 12 to 15 hours a week;
  • Close collaboration with nephrologists and other care team members:
  • National network of trained field and telephonic renal nurses and nurse practitioners; 
  • Proprietary predictive models and risk stratification algorithms;
  • Renal-specific care management protocols and clinical pathways; and
  • Integrated renal technology platform that enables care team collaboration.
