VillageHealth® understands the complexities of chronic kidney disease. Managing all aspects of care—health issues, lifestyle changes, emotional ups and downs, medical questions and financial concerns—can be overwhelming. VillageHealth partners with patients, physicians and healthcare professionals as well as payors to provide integrated care management for those with kidney disease. Our dedicated team of highly skilled nurses and specially trained professionals work with our clients to help prevent complications, reduce the number of avoidable hospitalizations and improve overall health of chronic kidney disease patients throughout the U.S. In partnering with our clients and managing patients’ care, VillageHealth provides support and advice that helps improve the lives of chronic kidney disease patients.
Renal care requires a team of professionals for each patient. The greatest opportunity for patient success comes from tailoring care to meet the unique needs of each patient. VillageHealth changes the way renal care management services are delivered by using an integrated care management approach. VillageHealth designed exclusive programs to assist in meeting patient needs while being sensitive to the rising costs of healthcare. Programs to encourage catheter reductions to reduce hospitalization and infections; a focus on diabetes management through a foot check protocol designed to reduce amputations; and Kidney SmartSM to educate patients to make better choices for their access, kidney disease treatment and lives. Our programs ensure that valuable resources are effectively used, creating an enhanced patient experience and improved clinical outcomes.
