As Editor Keith Chartier points out on page 10, the number of ESRD patients will double by 2015. You have the opportunity to care for these patients with kidney disease and you also have the responsibility to keep your practice running efficiently and be financially successful. Renal Business Today is your practice management resource. It provides you with the tools you need to make excellent business decisions within this ever-changing environment.
Call me or send me an email, I’d love to hear what you think about the magazine, what you would like to see both online or in print.
