    Unfortunately, the provision of dialysis under the 1973 ESRD program has proven again and again it is not all about patient outcomes but maximizing LDO profits instead.

    I think if the LDOs wanted to maximize profits they would offer EOD schedules.

    The sticking point in my view is that the current system works well for a lot of the stakeholder on the dull end of the needle. And for people on the sharp end it mostly works well enough.

    There is tremendous inertia to overcome.
