Satellite teams concentrate their efforts on helping patients achieve the best outcomes and quality of life possible. We aspire to meet and exceed the standards set by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), including:
- Low standardized hospitalization rates (SHR) in both admits and days, as compared to national averages
- Outperforming industry benchmarks in terms of reaching recommended hemoglobin levels as well as the prevalence of fistulas as the preferred vascular access
Additionally, Satellite’s history as the first to introduce dedicated home dialysis centers drives our commitment to promoting individualized care and patient empowerment. This active encouragement and support for patients has resulted in nearly three times the national average proportion of patients on home dialysis.
Home dialysis results in a higher quality of life for patients and their families. It allows them the flexibility to set their own treatment schedules to match their lifestyles. Plus it gives them greater opportunities to do what’s important to them — work, travel, and spend more time with their families.
