DENVER, Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), a leading independent medical group and a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, today announced its continued investment in the newly named technology suite, DaVita Physician Solutions (formerly Falcon Physician), affirming its increased focus on improving physician satisfaction and clinical outcomes.
DaVita Physician Solutions will leverage artificial intelligence and platform-driven thinking to help make sure physicians have access to the right data, at the right time. A key innovator in the health care technology sector, DaVita Physician Solutions is focused on reducing physician IT fatigue through modern technology, with the goal of increasing quality of care and decreasing cost, while improving overall physician satisfaction.
"We are committed to seeing the world from our physicians' perspective, and as their partner, it's our obligation to address their challenges and frustrations through the delivery of our technology," said Adam Weinstein, MD and vice president of medical affairs with clinical IT services at DaVita Kidney Care.
Within four months, DaVita Physician Solutions' new mobile platform has 3,000 active users, demonstrating its value of physicians' time through instant access to clinical information and easing administrative burden. Over the next 18 months, DaVita Physician Solutions will leverage the existing mobile platform to deliver improvements for physicians at point-of-care, as well as the launch of new products for practices and dialysis centers.
"While it might seem counterintuitive, we want our physicians to spend as little time per interaction with our tools as possible. The right technology should support our physicians in making the biggest impact in the least amount of time, giving them time back to spend where it matters most—on patient care," said Derek Schoonover, vice president of physician experience and DaVita Physician Solutions at DaVita Kidney Care.
