DENVER—DaVita announced the launch of NephLink , a new online physician community for kidney care.
NephLink is designed to allow physicians to discuss difficult patient cases or practice-management issues, share best practices and ideas, and debate the evolving health care landscape. NephLink provides physicians with direct access to their colleagues to engage and collaborate as a group —or one-on-one—with self-service privacy controls.
NephLink is a primary resource for nephrologists, but is also designed to connect all physicians serving kidney patients, including vascular surgeons and internists.
“NephLink is designed for the entire kidney care physician community to collaborate on difficult cases, share resources and best practices, and break down walls that prevent communication and collaboration,” said Dr.
In addition to providing tools to connect and collaborate, NephLink provides access to news, journals, events and resources from many kidney care news syndicates and journal publishers.
“I think NephLink offers virtually unlimited possibilities for the entire physician community to keep up with the latest clinical and policy developments and connect with each other on a professional level,” said Dr.
Self-service privacy controls allow physicians registered on NephLink to exercise control over posted content that they share publicly. NephLink is powered by OzmosisESP, a care-collaboration platform used exclusively by hospital systems and health care organizations, and there is no cost to join the community or access any of the content available on NephLink.
