Leveraging the Best Technology

At Northern Nephrology & Hypertension we are constantly working to improve the quality of kidney care and total health care we provide to our patients. While having a caring and bright staff is important it's just as important to use evidence based decision making along with advanced technology to really deliver the highest quality resulting and the best outcomes. Unlike many other small and average size practices we take time to review our quality processes and our health outcomes. We are focused on keeping the patient at the center of our care model. While population care is important on the whole, when a patient walks into the office they are an individual and require an individual approach to diagnosis and management. Below are some examples of the technology we have invested in and methods we are using to incorporate decision support systems.
