Change is coming to an area of healthcare that has evolved somewhat slowly in the past. New solutions will be needed to address increased demand for dialysis nurses and clinicians.
Demand for dialysis is expected to climb significantly as the American elderly population grows. It’s not just acute kidney conditions creating the increased need. More than 35 million Americans are already estimated to suffer from chronic kidney disease. As more Americans reach age 65 and older, increased incidence of diabetes, heart disease and hypertension will all likely contribute to the need for dialysis.
The U.S. rate for dialysis was already more than 209 per million in population, 50 percent higher than any West European nation, and more than double that of Austria, Spain, the United Kingdom.
While most of the dialysis treatment occurs at free-standing (often for-profit) clinics, some hospital-based treatment still occurs. The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic did cause some shift in treatment options, as more in-home visits and dialysis treatments became available. It remains to be seen if this will be a lasting delivery method following the pandemic.
Even with a nationwide network of dialysis clinics, who will staff them? All these factors indicate a potentially dramatic demand increase for dialysis nurses and clinicians nationwide. Medical Solutions stands ready to help clients address this challenge.
Improved reach will be needed to find, select and place the best possible dialysis nurses.
