In 2016 DaVita made the decision to implement our Alliance Site Network to better serve our industry clients. Working with established and new PIs, DaVita created research departments within multi-specialist practices to assist with the onboarding and execution of renal trials. We brought in or assumed responsibility for coordinator staff and implemented DaVita Clinical Research processes to help achieve high of quality and performance. Along with these PIs, we have created research facilities that specialize in both CKD and ESKD trials. Over the coming years we aim to expand this network to offer more capacity and study opportunities to our village of patients, our investigators and our sponsors.
