John Oliver targets dialysis, a procedure that’s exhausting, deadly, and very profitable
It would be far better for DaVita and Fresenius’s patients to get kidney transplants, which extends your lifespan by about 10 years on average, relative to remaining on dialysis, while avoiding exhausting, time-consuming treatment that makes holding down a job or traveling extremely difficult. But as Oliver notes, many dialysis centers fail to give patients information on transplantation, or actively discourage them from getting on the kidney waitlist. Partly as a result, about 40 percent of people eligible for a kidney transplant aren’t on the waiting list for one.

“In today’s world, you can treat patients with chronic kidney disease in different settings that are frankly much better for them and lower cost for the system,” Price said. “You can provide forms of dialysis in the home. You don’t need brick-and-mortar settings and you don’t need to have all the big real estate infrastructure costs these companies have built up trying to dominate and control this massive industry. There is the opportunity to disrupt the system. And it benefits everyone.”
