DaVita Selects Technology Solution From Cureatr To Support Integrated Patient Care For Dialysis Patients

DaVita®, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE:DVA) and a leading provider of kidney care services, today announced it has selected Cureatr, the leading enterprise messaging and workflow navigation solution for health care, to enhance communication and care coordination for care teams at dialysis centers across the country.

As a health care industry leader, DaVita seeks technology solutions to maximize care coordination and generate reports on key quality measures for continual process improvement. Cureatr’s mobile care coordination and reporting system will help DaVita foster more robust clinical information sharing, which may help reduce costly hospital admissions.

“The pace of health care demands a communication tool that can keep up, and that’s where Cureatr can help,” said Ben Harber, senior director of clinical operations at DaVita. “We’ve piloted Cureatr in Atlanta and are expanding to other markets soon. All results to date have been positive and show great promise as we scale to larger populations.”

This partnership will enable DaVita to provide Cureatr’s iPhone and web apps to thousands of its facility administrators, care managers, nurses and affiliated nephrologists. This offering, which will include a HIPAA-secure group messaging system with read receipts, secure photo sharing technology, and seamless integration with existing scheduling and directory systems, will improve communication between DaVita’s dialysis care teams, ultimately resulting in more efficient delivery of patient care.

“DaVita is one of the nation’s most innovative health care providers – they are a process-oriented, data-driven organization that is always looking for ways to enhance communication,” said Joseph Mayer, M.D., Cureatr co-founder and CEO. “With new legislation and standards as well as serious care coordination challenges faced by all health care providers, this is a new era for health care. We are confident that Cureatr can lead the charge in helping care providers overcome communication barriers and bottlenecks.”
