Pinnacle Disease Management has launched a renal disease management organisation. The organisation will coordinate an integrated network of more than 50 Californian nephrologists and dialysis providers, which provides services for sufferers of kidney disorders. The organisation is seeking contracts from health insurers and managed care organisations to integrate all aspects of renal disease management. Renal disease is estimated to affect 1.5 million people in the US annually, resulting in approximately $30,000 million in annual healthcare expenditure.
