The Northwest Kidney Care Alliance is your local End-Stage Renal Disease Seamless Care Organization—ESCO for short—in the Puget Sound region.
We’re a group of health care organizations, doctors and other health care professionals who have come together with one goal: achieve better health and better health care, at lower costs, for people who have serious kidney problems.
By collaborating and sharing information, we provide better-coordinated care for our patients. Discover why Medicare has created the ESCO program and see which organizations and individuals are involved in ours.
We've identified the best ways we can actively improve kidney care. Learn about the initiatives we offer patients involved in our ESCO.
People on dialysis at six Northwest Kidney Centers facilities are being treated in the Northwest Kidney Care Alliance model. Patients throughout Northwest Kidney Centers eventually will benefit from practices piloted in the ESCO.
