Welcome to Kidney Week 2019 in Washington D.C.

Rob Kossmann

At Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), we are excited to be in our nation’s capital and to support the government’s commitment to reducing the progression of CKD, and to opening new pathways to kidney transplantation and home dialysis therapies. We are very pleased to work together to transform kidney care for the future and we invite you to join us.

Our many poster and oral presentations reveal new insights, from artificial intelligence to vascular access, that we hope will help to substantially improve how we deliver care. Our trade booths display the latest innovations designed to improve patient outcomes whether through home technologies, connected health platforms, new dialyzers, fluid monitoring, or improved water filtration.

Our merger with NxStage has enhanced FMCNA, with new people, ideas, and solutions. We have seen our growth rate for home therapies in 2019 increase to be eight times that of in-center treatment. Our Fresenius Medical Care Foundation recently announced a substantial and meaningful partnership with Donate Life America to establish a national living donor registry and testing kit.

This is truly an exciting moment in the history of kidney care in the United States. Please join us as we continue our work to improve the lives of every patient, every day. We are excited to work together to achieve positive change.

    Redefining Dialysis, Individualizing Care
    NxStage is transforming home dialysis therapy, manufacturing innovative products for treating end stage renal disease (ESRD). 

    A growing body of evidence supports prescribing more frequent home treatments (peritoneal dialysis and home hemodialysis) to improve the quality of life of the increasing ESRD patient population and remove the constraints of conventional in-center dialysis. With home dialysis, clinicians can tailor treatments to meet the specific needs of each patient. When patients feel better, they live better.
