"An important part of measuring and tracking our clinical performance is through the DaVita Quality Index, or DQI," explained Dr. Allen Nissenson, DaVita Chief Medical Officer. "The DQI focuses on the performance of seven key clinical parameters, giving physicians a snapshot of how the patients in their clinics are performing. We have seen a clear correlation over the past five years of using the DQI that as overall DQI scores improve, overall mortality decreases."

"By focusing on clinical training and continuous quality improvement, we are able to partner with nephrologists," said Robertson. "As a doctor still in practice myself, I want my patients to feel their best and enjoy their lives. DaVita's tools and teammate training help me reach these goals."
