March 15, 2017 —

Fresenius Medical Care North America is collaborating with Humana Inc. in a new program designed to improve care and health outcomes for Humana’s members with end-stage renal disease.

Under the program, FMCNA, operating through its Fresenius Health Partners business, will implement its care coordination model to help patients obtain the health care services they need to address their illness and improve their quality of life.

Each patient will be supported by a collaborative team of local nephrologists and clinicians working in partnership with the Care Navigation Unit (CNU), FMCNA’s group of specialized nurses and service coordinators who provide 24/7 support and care coordination services.  According to FMCNA, the CNU foresees issues before they arise and helps patients, their families and their providers respond as they happen.
