Chief Medical Officer, Home Modalities DaVita Kidney Care

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 31 million US adults aged 20 years and older – more than 15 percent of the adult population – have chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is the ninth leading cause of death in the US. One in seven US adults has CKD and may not know it because there are no signs and one in three adults is at risk for developing CKD.

 

Recently, advancements in technology, such as home remote monitoring and telehealth, have further enabled kidney doctors to empower patients in the home setting and improve the patient experience. It’s possible to receive great care at home, even when a vital organ fails. The number of patients choosing to receive treatments at home continues to grow.

 

Did you know?

  • 31 million adults in the U.S. currently has kidney disease, but many don’t know it.
  • 660,000 Americans are currently being treated for kidney failure, also called ESRD. For these, 468,000 are dialysis patients and more than 193,000 have a functioning kidney transplant.
  • More than 25,000 DaVita patients have chosen peritoneal dialysis (PD) or Home Hemodialysis (HHD) as their modality of choice, making DaVita the leader in home dialysis in the U.S.
  • DaVita has more than 1,700 home dialysis programs across the U.S., which offer support and home dialysis training for patients. 

 

On Tuesday, June 18th, Dr. Martin Schreiber will be available to speak about one of America’s most prevalent chronic conditions, kidney disease and the advancements in home dialysis care. He can also discuss DaVita uses home remote monitoring, telehealth, predictive analytics and other programs and technology to meet with patients where they are and help them thrive in the home environment.
