Editors: Stephen Z. Fadem (Kidney Associates, PLLC, St. Lukes Medical Towers, Houston, TX)
Book Description:
Despite our efforts at creating clinical performance measures, clinical practice guidelines and intense government regulations, we still have disparities in care, poor outcomes and quality that is inferior to many other nations. Bundling and payment reform challenge the ability to deliver good care to patients even further. Chronic dialysis is at a crossroads. Physicians and providers must incorporate new approaches, reinventing the paradigm of how to plot the course of patient therapy. This book offers new ideas. It is refreshing, timely and engaging, with a wide range of topics by leading authors, each designed to help meet the challenges yet to come. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
