Shaping the Future of Healthcare
Welcome to DaVita Medical Insights: a blog platform that gives clinical thought leaders the opportunity to share their knowledge and engage in a collaborative online community.
The current state of healthcare is cause for significant concern. Approximately half of American adults have one or more chronic health conditions, which are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. The cost of healthcare to individuals, governments and society is staggering, and healthcare expenditures are projected to grow by 5.8 percent per year through 2024. In addition, the growing needs of our aging population strains our ability to deliver high-quality, cost-effective care.
As clinicians, we play a vital role in helping to improve the healthcare landscape and deliver true value to patients and all stakeholders. This blog can provide us a space to share thoughts, ideas and information on how we can continue to enhance clinical outcomes and quality of life for our patients—while also being responsible stewards of the public resources that enable us to carry out our mission.
I encourage you to engage with this blog. Share your thoughts on posts that interest you, or email us if you are interested in authoring a blog post.
Join us as we shape the future of healthcare—we look forward to collaborating with you.
