I am going to introduce you to an organization that is supposed to be looking out for patients; keeping costs affordable, confirming people get the care they need and give recommendations that will improve their health. To help improve access to care and prevent economic hardship to patients, an academic research group called the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) was created at Harvard Medical School. ICER formed in 2006 as a blending of expertise in health care ethics and evidence-based medicine.
With deep sorrow ARxC mourns the passing of our Dialysis patient, Justo Baudilio Rodriguez. Justo was much loved by the ARxC community and will be greatly missed.
