A New Model of Care for High-Risk Patients

Solutions

Today's healthcare delivery system is not designed for high-risk, medically complex patients—a population that represents only 5 percent of patients, yet drives 50 percent of our nation's healthcare costs. These patients tend to have greater difficulty accessing medical care, are more likely to rely on emergency department visits for ongoing care and are a population that is projected to grow dramatically over the next 20 years.1

DaVita Health Solutions offers a broad suite of home- and outpatient-based care programs to fill the gaps in today's healthcare delivery system for your most complex patients.

Model of Care
Patient-centered, MD/NP driven

Our programs are driven by a physician- and nurse practitioner-led interdisciplinary care team that extends primary care outside the traditional office setting, increases communication across care providers and helps to ensure seamless transitions from post-acute settings.

Our innovative model of care is designed to deliver patient-centered, high-quality medical care inside the patient's home, in a post-acute care facility or while the patient receives treatment within the dialysis center.

About Us

A Differentiated Partner, A Differentiated Solution

  • Proven results over time: Unlike start-ups, which have narrow track records over short periods of time, we have more than 15 years of experience delivering tailored, comprehensive care programs to manage high-risk patients. These programs have driven measurable results.
  • Comprehensive, customizable approach: While many companies focus on individual diseases or care settings, we believe that you must treat each patient's "whole self," and do so in the right care setting at the right time—whether in the patient's home, post-acute care facility or dialysis center.
  • Provider-led solution and care model: We understand that caring for high-risk, complex patients requires an entirely different care model—one that goes beyond typical disease/care management, consulting or analytics alone to meet patients where they are with all the services they might need.
  • Structurally advantaged in ESRD management: Many high-risk patients have ESRD and/or CKD, and with our roots as a dialysis provider, we are structurally advantaged with routine access to patients as they dialyze 12-15 hours per week, national scale and strong nephrologist relationships.
  • We take all the risk: You don't pay a dime and we don't make a dime unless we save more than we spend; we split the savings only after our model of care costs are recouped.
