Clinical Initiatives and Tools to Support Our Kidney Care Providers

With proprietary clinical initiatives and programs that aim to maximize patients’ outcomes and quality of life at the onset of treatment, DaVita offers tools and resources to support our physicians as they transition patients safely and smoothly to dialysis.

  • DaVita’s IMPACTTMcare-management program improves outcomes and reduces mortality rates by focusing on the first 90 days of dialysis, when patients are at highest risk for serious and potentially fatal complications.
  • DaVita’s CathAwayTM program helps transition patients from central venous catheters (CVCs) to arteriovenous (AV) fistulas, reducing the risk of hospitalization from infections and blood clots.
  • DaVita’s pneumococcal pneumonia and influenza vaccination initiatives lead the industry and help foster a safe environment for patients and the clinical team. In 2012, DaVita vaccinated 91 percent of patients for each.
