Improving patients’ quality of life is the heart of our mission—and in doing so we’re able to reduce the burden of care for all involved in the dialysis system. Our nurses work with fewer patients than typical dialysis centers, allowing them to focus their attention and build lasting relationships. And with 4 out of 5 of our patients recovering within an hour¹, they feel revitalized and engaged.

We know that no one knows the patient like their physician. That’s why we strive to keep our patients connected to their preferred doctors at all times. We value their nephrologists’ opinions and look to them as a guiding voice. Maintaining a strong relationship for coordination of patient care is our priority.
Dialysis is mostly government funded, with 1% of the federal budget allocated to treatment of kidney failure and its complications. Patients are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers. These payors are responsible for patients’ transportation and potential rehospitalizations. By drastically reducing the rate of infections and hospitalizations, which allows patients to complete rehab, Dialyze Direct delivers massive cost savings for government and private insurance payors.
Thanks to PDPM, a successful dialysis patient is now incredibly valuable to a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF). SNFs are now focused on how much they improve patient outcomes, incentivizing them to take in patients with more complex medical problems, such as dialysis patients. And with our help, their dialysis patients can be successful, promoting a positive cycle that impacts everyone involved in the care process.
