It's a dynamic time for kidney care, and physicians aligned with the Nephrology Care Alliance (NCA) can help define the future of kidney care in a value-based system.

Led by physicians, NCA offers nephrologists opportunities to leverage established tools, programs and supports to make full continuum, integrated kidney care a reality for patients. This may also lower treatment and overall health care costs.

Value-Based Care and Chronic Kidney Disease

Through NCA, nephrologists may participate in our value-based care contracts and earn outcomes-based financial incentives.

Joining NCA enables you to utilize data analytics combined with care coordination to better manage kidney disease, potentially slow kidney function decline, and more efficiently transition the patient to dialysis, if needed. Together we can transform kidney care to improve patient outcomes, help lower costs and enhance patients' lives.

Leverage accurate and timely data, performance benchmarking, award-winning patient education, care team resources, and CKD EHR specifically designed for nephrology workflows.
