What are the main findings of the study?
- Veterans receiving dialysis in VAMCs were more likely to be hospitalized compared to dual and VA-outsourced dialysis users.
- Veterans in VA-outsourced settings had shorter hospital stays than users of VA, possibly due to healthier veterans getting outsourced dialysis.
- Among veterans who were hospitalized, dual users had lower one-year mortality than VA-only dialysis patients
