Why Partner with EKC?
Our Empowered Kidney Care philosophy creates a culture of collaboration, offering control, dignity, and hope to all patients. Both staff and patients enjoy an environment where innovation is honored, and healthcare providers can use their experience and expertise to serve as coaches and mentors for their patients.
Our team provides coaching, tools, and technologies to transform your kidney care program into a community.
Working Towards Self-Care Dialysis
In-center self-care dialysis is the primary way we help clinics create an empowered care culture. We first help clients evaluate their unique conditions and customize a plan of action to work towards their goals. We have identified four benchmarks on the road to a fully-empowered self-care clinic.
Customized Implementation Strategies
Empowered Kidney Care provides consulting services to help your leadership transform your kidney care program. We create and help execute a strategic plan to move you towards in-center self-care dialysis and fully integrated kidney care solutions, including transplants, nocturnal therapy, and home therapy.
Learning Module Coaching
We work with you to implement processes to support better patient results, cost savings, and improved experience for staff and patients.
We use technology as a tool to streamline and improve your kidney care program. We'll help you navigate the world of medical hardware, software, and devices.
Empowered methods get empowered results
Our philosophy is based on extensive research and decades of real-world experience. We believe staff should have license to innovate, which means that our program also continues to evolve and improve as doctors, nurses, technicians, and patients all learn from each other.
The EKC model has been vetted and tested by industry experts, legal counsel, and government agencies alike. Empowered model clinics see consistent improvement of quality indicators at every level, scoring an average 4.8-stars according to evaluation by CMS.
Don't risk falling behind
In 2019, the U.S. government announced initiatives to incentivize kidney care improvement, including The Kidney Care First (KCF) and Comprehensive Kidney Care Contracting (CKCC). We're here to help you understand these new programs and take steps towards alignment.
