Has NXTM renewed the home system agreement with DaVita?
Has the agreement between the two been ( the home dialyser) renewed. I think it expired in December 2009.
"DaVita continues to be our most significant customer for both segments. We have long-term agreements directly or indirectly covering products sales to DaVita in both the System One and In-Center segments; however, the initial term of our agreement for the home market with DaVita is scheduled to expire in December 2009".
There is no other home dialysis machine on the market. Even fresenius who is big on dialysis machines is using them . NXTM has the whole 100% lock on home dialysis which is being promoted by all the companies due to the new bundling rates by CMS that favours switching patients to home hemo. Not only that even Europe is pushing towards home dialysis.
