Continuing its rapid growth trajectory, Global Nephrology Solutions (GNS) has added five richly-experienced executives to their leadership team. GNS is a physician-led, technology-enabled kidney care platform laser-focused on improving patient outcomes. By nearly doubling its current leadership, GNS is poised to meet escalating market demands efficiently and effectively.
In 2020, GNS received a strategic growth investment from Audax Private Equity to help expand its model to shape the future of renal care. Since then, the platform has grown to 400-plus providers caring for patients across 12 states. Collectively, these new leaders will help further drive GNS’s goals to expand access and support the nephrology industry’s transition to value-based care — all strengthened with a data-driven, physician-led platform.
“The growth of our leadership team with these experienced and dedicated hires will help us advance our offerings and – most importantly – allow more nephrologists to focus on patient care and be leaders in both the industry and their markets,” said Rajiv Poduval, M.D., FASN, Founding CEO of Global Nephrology Solutions. “In 2021, we have brought on nine new partner practices. I expect this momentum to accelerate as our expanded executive team brings together eclectic and expansive experience and a strong desire to improve the lives of patients across the country.”
Executives bringing deep expertise across the healthcare, economics, information technology (IT), marketing and contracting spectrums to the GNS team are:
