"At CareDx, we believe transplantation is better than dialysis because it promises better quality of life for kidney patients, provides better outcomes and is demonstrably more cost effective for the healthcare system overall", said Peter Maag, CEO of CareDx. "We look forward to continuing to work with nephrologists to help create even better care models for our unique population of patients". But more than 700,000 people have end-stage renal disease, meaning their kidneys have failed, and require either a transplant or dialysis to survive. The model should broaden the range of care and Medicare payment options available to potential participants with a focus on delaying or preventing the onset of kidney failure, preventing unnecessary hospitalizations, and increasing the rate of transplants.
