Advancing Applied Pragmatic Research To Help Patients Now.

Satellite is recognized nationally as a major force in improving standards of patient care as well as increasing each patient’s quality of life.

Our research focuses on care delivery and process improvement that lead to findings that can rapidly be adopted and implemented across the CKD community. Satellite research initiatives seek to:

  • Increase the number of patients dialyzing using home therapies (HHD and PD).
  • Greatly reduce home dialysis drop-out rates.
  • Advance quality treatment with in the context of excellent patient experience.
  • Collaborate with like-minded organizations to create a future network focused on identifying innovative and leading practices.
