Without trained and educated professionals to deliver care, gains in life expectancies that are possible due to medical research and innovative health technologies would remain only theoretical. DaVita, Inc. is responsible for positive Humankind Value, largely through Medical Services ($10.2 B), Healthcare R&D ($7.4 B), and Medical Devices ($6.2 B). Within the Humankind 100, DaVita, Inc. is a top-five company for Medical Services per dollar of revenue. The value associated with Medical Services, Healthcare R&D, and Medical Devices contains our estimation of 494,678.5 additional years lived by people worldwide. However, there is potential room for improvement with respect to Opioid Abuse (-$483.2 M). Medical Services is attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Healthcare R&D, Medical Devices, and Opioid Abuse are mostly or entirely a result of supply-chain relationships. For this firm, supply chain partners increase an already positive Humankind Value.
