Chronic Disease

More than half of all Americans suffer from a chronic disease such as diabetes, congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or kidney failure. Even more concerning, studies by the Milken Institute show that the incidence of chronic diseases is expected to increase by 42% by 2030. Because of the long-term relationship a patient will have with a provider or health system while dealing with a chronic disease, choosing the right providers and facilities is crucial for both outcomes and financial impact.

Kidney Failure Acute

A sudden and rapid loss of kidney function resulting in a build-up of waste products that are normally filtered by the kidneys and removed from the body through urine. Because these waste products are toxic, acute kidney failure can be life threatening. Acute kidney failure may be caused by trauma, surgery, dehydration, medication or other conditions.

Diabetes—Medical Management

The body is unable to make enough insulin or does not use the insulin properly. Diabetes can lead to acute complications such as a coma from too much or too little glucose (blood sugar) and long-term complications such as kidney disease and damage to blood vessels and nerves.

CHF (Congestive Heart Failure)
