Dr. Rajiv Poduval is a physician-executive dedicated to transforming healthcare delivery in the Nephrology space. His career has focused on the development of a healthcare ecosystem with an emphasis on patient empowerment.

Dr. Poduval served as President of Southwest Kidney Institute, from January 2011 to December 2019. Southwest Kidney Institute (SKI), one of the country’s premier nephrology practices, is a well-diversified company including Southwest Vascular Centers, Southwest Clinical Research Institute, SKI Properties and SKI-DaVita Dialysis Centers. Under Dr. Poduval’s leadership, SKI has expanded its physician base, achieved its desired market density, and strengthened its statewide business partnerships.

In 2012, under Dr. Poduval's leadership, the Renal Care Organization was launched. He has served as RCO's CEO since its founding, and the RCO's growing national footprint is a testament to his commitment to build ‘Partnerships without Boundaries’, a model in which like-minded Nephrologists could share a platform of clinical excellence, committed to high quality population health initiatives. As the RCO platform made a push towards value-based care, RCO Analytics (RCOA) was launched to help support the RCO’s progressive clinical initiatives. Today, RCOA hosts one of the largest CKD databases in the country, and serves as a repository of clinical, operational, and financial data from its member practices. RCOA’s clinical dashboards and risk-stratification tools help practices track quality of care, outcomes, and utilization, in keeping with CMS’ triple aim.

Based on his experience from several leadership roles, Dr. Poduval sensed the need for a physician-led practice management platform, that could leverage the power of a growing physician network, robust data analytics, and creative population health initiatives, to keep physicians relevant, independent, and at the center of patient-care delivery. In 2017, Global Nephrology Solutions (GNS) was born with Dr. Poduval as the CEO. Today, GNS supports nearly 300 Nephrologists in private practice in 10 states, thereby improving care-delivery to hundreds of thousands of patients with CKD.

Dr. Poduval completed both his Nephrology and Transplant Nephrology Fellowships at the University of Chicago and has been practicing both specialties in the Phoenix Metro for over 15 years, where he has been recognized as a ‘Top Doc’ by the Phoenix Magazine. Under his guidance, SKI’s Transplant Division has developed into one of the largest in the State. Dr. Poduval serves as the Medical Director of the Dignity Saint Joseph Kidney Transplant Program, and was instrumental in launching the program in 2014. Additionally, he serves as the Medical Director of both the DaVita Papago Dialysis Unit, Phoenix, and DaVita Fountain Hills Unit, Fountain Hills, and is a 2-time recipient of the ‘Medical Director Excellence Award’ for DaVita’s Westside Division.

Dr. Poduval holds faculty appointments at both the University of Arizona College of Medicine, and the Creighton University School of Medicine, and has been recognized for excellence in teaching. He is a strong believer and supporter of ‘University-Community’ collaboration, and under his leadership, Southwest Kidney Institute has a forged a strong, synergistic partnership with the Nephrology Division at the University of Arizona, Tucson. He is an active member of the RPA and has served as member of RPA’s NCAP Steering Committee from 2012-2018. He has also served as a member of the ASN’s Media and Communication Committee from 2016-2018.

He is passionate about creating and implementing automated processes across the organization, using IT tools and analytics with the goal of driving quality outcomes, and improving patient care while achieving financial success.

He has served on the board of Southwest Kidney Institute and the SKI-DaVita Dialysis Joint venture board for 8 years.  He is a member of the Banner Health Network finance committee, Board member of BHN Neighborhood Physician Alliance (NPA) and member of the Phoenix Tucson Integrated ESCO (Renal ACO) governing body.
