Increase Quality of Care

DPC is working to ensure that there are appropriate incentives in the Medicare ESRD program to encourage innovation in the field. We are also partnering with members of the kidney and greater medical community to provide the patient voice in new research projects. All those affected by kidney disease know how vital access to high quality care is to living a full and meaningful life. DPC is committed to working with the kidney community to ensure that all care provided in this country meets the highest quality and patient safety standards so all of our members can live life to the fullest.
