TEMPE, Ariz. and DECATUR, Ga. – August 9, 2022 – Today, Panoramic Health, the leading integrated value-based kidney care platform, and Northwest Nephrology Clinic, P.A. (NNC), an independent nephrology practice based out of Decatur, Georgia, announced their partnership to deliver superior healthcare outcomes for patients living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) in the greater Atlanta area.
“We are proud to partner with NCC to continue to improve quality care for patients along the CKD-ESKD spectrum,” said Rajiv Poduval, M.D., FASN, CEO and co-founder of Panoramic Health. “Our collective efforts to support the nephrology ecosystem through our value-based care platform provides a winning model for patients, providers and payers.”
With more than 800 providers in 19 states, Panoramic Health continues its mission of bringing together the highest quality nephrology groups in the U.S. and enabling them to collaborate to provide the highest quality, most cost-effective Kidney Care. Panoramic Health’s industry-leading value-based care technology, predictive analytics, clinical decision workflows and patient engagement, paired with NNC’s expertise in CKD management, post-kidney transplant management, and hypertension management will work collectively to improve patient outcomes and slow disease progression for CKD patients in the region.
“We are thrilled to partner with Panoramic Health,” said Andrew Dixon, M.D., President of Northwest Nephrology Clinic. “The ability to retain independence and autonomy over our clinical practice as part of Panoramic Health’s flexible partnership model, while benefiting from the support of its vast resources and value-based care solutions will enable us to continually improve care for CKD and ESRD patients in the Atlanta community.”
Designed by nephrologists for nephrologists, Panoramic Health’s platform has helped significantly improve outcomes for patients, including a 65 percent patient engagement rate that delivers superior value-based care for patients at the direction of the nephrologist. The holistic, value-based care platform also delivers a 30 percent decrease in hospitalizations and 56 percent reduction in hospital re-admissions for CKD and ESRD patients.
“Panoramic Health’s unique partnership model, where physicians continue to not only own their own practice going forward, but also gain ownership in Panoramic Health, has been a true differentiator in terms of attracting the highest quality nephrology groups like NNC,” said Rocky Chanana, Vice President of Business Development for Panoramic Health. “Especially when they consider the benefits of our market leading value-based care support and data analytics solutions.”
