Q3 2011

Relentless Pursuit of Quality

Q3 2011

DaVita has Achieved Clinical Outcomes that are the best or Among the best in Virtually every Category(1)

A few highlights
DaVita has improved clinical outcomes for 11 consecutive years 98% of affiliated physicians say DaVita meets or exceeds expectations as a clinical partner The DaVita Quality Index (DQI) reflects performance on a range of patient outcomes to measure, rank and improve the clinical performance of each dialysis facility. Improvements in DQI generally translate to longer life and avoided hospitalizations for our patients DaVita Rx reduces the potential for adverse drug interactions and improves patient adherence to prescriptions, lowering the risk of hospitalization by up to 30% Patients with advanced CKD who are in a VillageHealth integrated care program generally experienceslower progression to dialysis, more outpatient than in-hospital dialysis starts, and a higher likelihood ofhaving a fistula in place on the first day of dialysis

Vascular Access is the patients life line to hemodialysis. Blood for dialysis is pumped from a large arm vessel constructed
from the patients artery and vein (arteriovenous fistula or AVF), or from a catheter placed into a large vein near the heart (central venous catheter or CVC). Patients with CVCs, compared to AVF, suffer higher risk of death and hospitalization from infections and blood clots. Trended data:
= =


percent of prevalent patients(>90 days) with a CVC, based on access used in last treatment of quarter (lower is better) percent of prevalent patients (>90 days) with an AVF, based on access used in last treatment of quarter (higher is better)
