Description

Individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are often faced with a complex list of concerns that are exacerbated by insufficient communication among providers and between patients and providers and poor interoperability of digital information. Health information technology (HIT) has the potential to facilitate CKD research, public health surveillance, population health/quality improvement efforts and clinical care. The National Kidney Disease Education Program (NKDEP) Health Information Technology Working Group (HITWG) aims to provide easy and uniform access to electronic kidney health information that will enable researchers to better understand the national burden of CKD, health care professionals to better care for CKD patients, and people living with CKD to better manage their health. Based on feedback from the nephrology and informatics communities, the NKDEP HITWG developing IT-based resources to support CKD population health, including an electronic care plan for management of patients with multiple chronic conditions including CKD, an electronic phenotype to identify patients likely to have CKD, and a business case to justify investment in population health management infrastructure for CKD. This poster will provide information on these resources, including status updates and how to access and implement them.
