Fresenius Kidney Care CEO and Chief Medical Officer Discuss Pharmacy Integration

Ron Kuerbitz and Dr. Frank Maddux discuss the value of integration between the pharmacy and patients’ interdisciplinary care team, allowing FreseniusRx to support improved outcomes through better management of renal medications.

OUR COORDINATED CARE APPROACH 

Healthcare in America is complicated, but the FreseniusRx model of care offers opportunities for patient-centric, innovative partnerships.

We believe patients deserve more than just pills in a bottle. Our pharmacy understands the nuances of prescribing patterns for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) and the unique requirements of renal specialty medications.

We are able to maximize our value with both patients and clinics through our interdisciplinary, coordinated care team:

  • Clinical pharmacists with unique training in renal pharmacotherapy
  • Nurses with direct patient care and case management experience
  • Dietitians with experience in serving a variety of patients including dialysis patients
  • Pharmacy technicians with a focus on comprehensive and compassionate care
