Part Two of Nephronline's Renal Business Blog about WellBound
How home treatment has really changed the lives of dialysis patients. CEO Marc Branson told Nephronline.com he prefers to work with "nephrology evangelists" who share his mindset. He wants patients to be literate and for education to begin well before treatment. This could be where the importance of joint ventures with community clinics come in.

Excerpt from "The Renal Business Beat" a Weekly Blog
Set out to change the lives of ESRD patients, WellBound, the Nation's first chain of home dialysis clinics, is offering education and training about chronic kidney disease and dialysis option.
