Aug 29, 2023

Tempe, Arizona – Panoramic Health, the nation’s leading physician-integrated value-based care (VBC) platform, is proud to announce its strategic partnership with Kidney Specialists of South Texas (KSST), a renowned nephrology practice located in Corpus Christi, Texas. This collaboration marks Panoramic Health’s seventh collaboration with leading nephrology practices in Texas in the past year. 

As Panoramic Health's first practice partnership in the Coastal Bend community of South Texas, the alliance with KSST underscores the organization's momentum in fostering meaningful collaborations in Texas. It extends its reach to a diverse population of nearly 80,000 chronic kidney and end-stage kidney disease patients in key metropolitan areas such as Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio. This strategic partnership with KSST integrates Panoramic Health's industry-leading predictive analytics, clinical workflows, and holistic care coordination across KSST’s multiple office locations in the Coastal Bend community.

"We are excited to embark on this transformative journey with Kidney Specialists of South Texas," said Rocky Chanana, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Panoramic Health. "Our shared dedication to patient-centered care aligns perfectly, and together, we are poised to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of patients in Corpus Christi. KSST and other practices across the U.S. value our nephrologist-led approach to VBC, ancillary opportunities, and distinctive model that allows physicians to continue owning their clinical practice while also becoming owners in Panoramic Health.”

By leveraging Panoramic Health's integrated VBC platform, KSST will enhance care coordination to optimize patient engagement and achieve better clinical and financial outcomes. This collaboration will empower KSST to provide even more comprehensive and tailored kidney care services to their patients. 

Dr. Shah Islam, President of Kidney Specialists of South Texas, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership by saying, "Panoramic Health's holistic approach to value-based care resonates with our commitment to providing high-quality, comprehensive kidney care. We are confident that this collaboration will empower us to elevate the level of care we deliver to our patients."

Panoramic Health's mission to revolutionize healthcare through physician-integrated, value-based care remains at the forefront of its expansion efforts. This new alliance with KSST marks another significant step toward creating a healthcare ecosystem prioritizing value, collaboration, and patient outcomes.
