At DaVita, we're committed to improving kidney care. That's why we're proud that the government has rated DaVita highest among all major dialysis providers in its two key performance programs: Five-Star Quality Rating System and Quality Incentive Program (QIP). See below to learn more about each one—and about how this information can help you choose the right team for your dialysis care.
Five-Star Quality Rating System: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) created this rating system as a way to help patients decide where they want to receive care by providing more information about dialysis center performance. For two years in a row, DaVita has been the leader in Five-Star ratings, with more Four- or Five-Star centers than any other major dialysis provider.* To learn more about the CMS Five-Star Quality Rating System, check out these frequently asked questions.
Quality Incentive Program (QIP): QIP is part of CMS's end stage renal disease (ESRD) program to encourage dialysis centers to meet or exceed certain performance standards. DaVita leads the industry with 98% of DaVita centers rated in the top clinical performance tier.
