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. www.NewayLLC.com
