Central Florida Kidney Centers and Neway Enter Strategic Partnership for Dialysis Labs

Orlando, Florida, 4/5/2024. Central Florida Kidney Centers, Inc, “CFKC” the leading non-profit provider of renal dialysis services in the Central Florida region, and Neway, LLC, the US leader in value-based care for dialysis labs, have signed an exclusive agreement for Neway to provide dialysis laboratory services to CFKC.

Neway and CFKC started working together in February with a shared mission to accelerate the velocity, quality, and accuracy of dialysis patient care for CFKC. CFKC selected Neway as its trusted dialysis lab partner to serve their kidney community by gaining access to the ®Neway with Quest Diagnostics lab network, the ®Neway Dialysis Lab Stewardship Program, all powered by the ®Neway eLabs Platform. Neway selected CFKC because of its non-profit mission and dedication to providing the highest level of dialysis patient care.

Bryan Thompson, Neway Founder & CEO said, “Central Florida Kidney Center and its non-profit mission embodies the best of dialysis. Neway is on a mission to improve ESRD patient care outcomes, while also giving ESRD programs global cost of care control over dialysis labs. CFKC and Neway is the perfect partnership and a step in the right direction for the future of dialysis through stewardship, innovation, and excellence.”

Amy Kozsuch, CEO of Central Florida Kidney Centers, said, “Through this partnership, CFKC & Neway aim to revolutionize the delivery of care in the dialysis and CKD industry by prioritizing innovation and embracing a value-based approach, ensuring all our patients receive the highest quality care while driving positive change throughout the healthcare system. At the core of the CKFC mission lies a commitment to embodying the essence of being a kidney care company: large enough to effectively serve our community yet remaining small enough to care for every individual intimately. We stay true to these roots and recognize the same qualities in our partners at Neway.”

About Neway:

Neway is the U.S. leader in value-based care for dialysis labs. We help dialysis programs achieve better financial outcomes while increasing the quality and velocity of patient care.

The Neway Dialysis Lab Stewardship Program® helps you maximize lab revenue, lower lab fees, and give you global lab cost of care control. Neway works with your care team to optimize your lab order set and adhere to CMS guidelines, while eliminating wasteful and excessive testing, which lowers your overall lab fees and maximizes your dialysis lab earnings.

Neway with Quest Diagnostics® delivers next-day lab results and emergency preparedness. Dialysis clinics draw the patient’s specimen using Quest Diagnostics collection protocols that preserve specimen integrity and minimize blood degradation, an important detail on dialysis Hemoglobin (HGB) and Potassium (K) results. Quest Diagnostics logistic teams pick specimens up on the same day to be processed locally or regionally and results are delivered the next day. Working with Quest Diagnostics’ extensive network of laboratories and emergency preparedness protocols, Neway sustains the velocity of patient care through unforeseen events such as natural disasters, labor strikes, and pandemics.

The Neway eLabs Platform® is a modern lab ordering and reporting tool developed from years of clinical dialysis lab expertise. It's user friendly and improves dialysis lab draw workflows by reducing clicks and screen time. The Neway eLabs Platform has real-time critical alerts, dashboards, draw calendars, and the highest level of cyber security for PHI & HIPAA. Neway eLabs has all the dialysis labs reporting you would expect plus clinical decision support tools for disease management including hepatitis lab protocols. Neway also integrates directly to your dialysis specific EMR so that new patients and KT/V calculation data automatically flows into eLabs, and conversely eLabs pushes new lab results into your EMR real-time.

Neway is Your Trusted Dialysis Lab Partner delivering innovation, stewardship, and excellence to your dialysis program.
