#CareTalk Shorts – Trump sends dialysis patients home

Kidney dialysis is one of the most opaque and problematic sectors of the healthcare economy. It’s controlled by a duopoly that extracts big dollars from private payers while maintaining a symbiotic relationship with the Federal government. Patients aren’t particularly well served and costs are rising.

President Trump’s executive order aims to encourage the use of home dialysis. That’s a good thing, as CareCentrix CEO John Driscoll and I discuss in this edition of #CareTalk Shorts.
