Amongst the top ten clinical initiatives announced, DaVita outlined the top two priorities for physician partners: striving for reduction of first-year mortality rates and reducing catheter use. DaVita will continue the success of the CathAway program, in which the entire care team educates and organizes the patients' catheter removal plan. DaVita will also work to lead the entire renal community to decrease first-year mortality in dialysis patients. These two priorities, in conjunction with DaVita's enhanced clinical programs, are just some of the ways partnering physicians can work to transform kidney care across America. A few of the other highlighted programs include:

  • IMPACT(TM) - A comprehensive patient management effort designed to focus on the first three months of dialysis and to improve the key indicators associated with lower morbidity and mortality.'/>"/>
