B. Braun provides patients with a complete renal care infrastructure
What does it mean to care for dialysis patients?
For B. Braun, caring for dialysis patients means creating close and supportive relationships of trust between the patients and all of the involved stakeholders – family, friends, physicians and caregivers of all sorts. Medical expertise and advanced technologies support our approach.
Starting with the initial diagnosis and continuing throughout the whole therapy process – including the time between dialysis sessions – we work to find the best possible way to support each patient in coping with his or her condition and in everyday life. This support includes education and advice, training of various sorts, lifestyle and dietary guidance and even vacation-planning assistance. Why does B. Braun do all of this? It’s very simple: our mission is to improve patients’ quality of life.
With our global network and expertise, we are able to offer a comprehensive dialysis solution portfolio as well as a wide range of services to support patients and make their lives easier and better.

What we do
Over the years, B. Braun has evolved into one of the world‘s leading providers on the global health care markets – still entirely family-owned. Throughout this growth, we have always maintained our focus: people in need. Renal care from B. Braun goes beyond the dialysis treatment itself. Putting the patient at the center of our efforts is part of our DNA; we want to help them to meet the challenges they face on a daily basis. Renal failure is a life-changing disease. Over decades of experience, we have developed our knowledge and skills on how to provide the emotional and practical support patients need to lead happier, healthier and ultimately longer lives.
To achieve the goals of quality in renal care and best possible patient outcomes, we firmly believe that an integrated, holistic approach that encompasses the entire care process is absolutely essential. This allows us to continuously monitor, analyze and refine each aspect of what it takes to make that process a successful one in every respect. The expertise we have gained along the way has given us a broad insight on how we can work together with various healthcare partners in the different markets to make renal care as good as it can be. In line with our core beliefs, we live up to current standards and support their continued development, working together with healthcare systems and medical communities in countries around the world. By supporting the development of standards, defining optimal treatment pathways, constantly improving required technology and sharing this expertise with others, we are able to transfer our core beliefs into meaningful outcomes, improving patients’ lives and making their care more efficient. Going way beyond merely developing and manufacturing medical technology as well as pharmaceuticals, B. Braun provides patients with a complete renal care infrastructure.
