DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners (DVA) and leading provider of kidney care services, announced a collaboration with Medtronic (MDT) to better understand cardiovascular health in end stage renal disease, ESRD patients.

09:01 EDTGEGE to build advanced manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania
GE announced that it will build a new manufacturing facility to drive innovation and implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies across GE. The new facility represents a $32M investment over three years by the company and will result in the creation of 50 high-tech engineering jobs initially, in disciplines ranging from mechanical and electrical to systems and software engineering. These technologists will join GE’s global network of 50,000 world-class scientists, engineers, and skilled labor who are working to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges. The new facility reflects GE’s belief that the intersection of technology and manufacturing – marrying hardware with software – is bringing a new era of manufacturing. The site will be located outside of Pittsburgh in Findlay Township, PA to capitalize on the renowned academic institutions and skilled workforce in the area. Construction is expected to begin in March 2015 to be completed by September 2015.
08:58 EDTAETManaged Care earnings risk low from King vs. Burwell, says Leerink
Leerink believes the Supreme Court decision to the King vs. Burwell case carries low earnings risk for Managed Care companies. The case to determine the legality of Exchange subsidies administered by the Federal Government carries less than 2% and 3% of earnings risk for 2014 and 2015 estimates, respectively, Leerink believes. The firm says Humana (HUM) and Cigna (CI) are currently losing money on Exchanges, and thus could benefit from any Federal Exchange membership loss. Leerink lists Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), WellPoint (WLP) and Molina Healthcare (MOH) as being most impacted.
