The first step in DaVita’s integrated care model is providing comprehensive educational information about chronic kidney disease (CKD). As a physician, you understand the importance of education in helping your patients become involved in their treatment so that they can make informed decisions about their health.
Physicians and patients can access a wide range of DaVita’s educational resources and chronic disease management tools that address the physical, emotional and financial needs of kidney disease while enabling patients to lead their best lives.
Kidney SmartSM: Through instructor-led or online classes, Kidney Smart gives people with CKD who have not yet started dialysis the information they need to make healthy choices and slow the progression of their disease—all at no cost to them.
myDaVita.com: Kidney care patients can connect with caregivers and fellow patients for friendship and support on myDaVita.com, a robust social networking component of DaVita.com.
