Sanderling Renal Services for Rural Communities: Sanderling is focused on bringing high quality dialysis and nephrology services to rural communities and home dialysis patients. Many patients who live in rural communities lack convenient access to a dialysis clinic or a nephrologist (kidney specialist). Sanderling uses Advanced Telemedicine™ to bring the nephrologist to rural communities, allowing our patients to access high quality specialized care for renal problems and dialysis closer to home. Traveling three times a week over rural roads to a dialysis clinic that is far away from home is a huge burden on a dialysis patient and his or her family. Sanderling helps reduce that burden by developing dialysis and chronic kidney disease clinics in the heart of rural America. Sanderling establishes a close working relationship with the local hospital and primary care providers to improve the continuity of care for patients who require dialysis.
Sanderling Renal Services for Home Patients - Home Dialysis Plus: Sanderling is committed to helping ESRD patients receive dialysis at home. This includes helping the patient and the patient's family with in-home support, even after the initial training is over. This innovative program takes advantage of telemedicine and remote monitoring tools to make dialysis at home feasible for almost any patient.
Quality of Patient Care: Sanderling's founders, affiliated physicians, and clinical staff have a long tradition of providing high quality care and pleasing environments to patients on dialysis. Our clinical protocols are established by our Medical Advisory Board and are continually revised to reflect the latest information related to the treatment of patients on dialysis.
Advanced Technology: Sanderling uses the latest generation dialysis equipment, a sophisticated Electronic Medical Record (PEARL™), and Advanced Telemedicine to enhance the safety and quality of the dialysis treatments performed in its centers and in patients' homes. Advanced Telemedicine allows Sanderling to improve the face-to-face communication between dialysis patients and their nephrologists, even for patients who live in rural communities far from a nephrologist's primary office. The PEARL™ Electronic Medical Record was developed by Sanderling's founder and has a proven history of providing timely information, resulting in better outcomes (lower mortality and less frequent hospitalizations) than other dialysis chains. The PEARL™ Electronic Medical Record is available via a secure Internet connection 24 hours a day, and can be accessed by other providers (emergency rooms, hospitals) in the event of an emergency. This feature enhances the communication, and continuity of care, for Sanderling's patients when they are traveling or need emergency care when the dialysis clinic is closed.
Significant Physician Involvement: The Chief Executive Officer and the majority of the senior executives at Sanderling are nephrologists whose primary goal is to deliver high quality care to our patients. The collective experience and knowledge of this group allows Sanderling to rapidly evaluate and adopt newly developed technology and clinical practices for use in its clinics.
Proven Track Record: The Founder and key executives have been successfully developing dialysis clinics for more than 25 years.
