The National Kidney Disease Education Program (NKDEP) Health Information Technology Working Group hosted a conference on October 22-23 to discuss using health IT to identify and manage CKD populations. The aims of the conference were to:
- Review best practices for kidney-related PHM efforts for research (e.g., pragmatic trials) and clinical care (e.g., PHM implementation across health care systems) from experienced centers across North America.
- Review challenges and opportunities to facilitate additional broad-scale population efforts for research and clinical care for kidney disease.
- Develop a repository to aggregate shared strategies and resources (e.g., algorithms, code) that will facilitate kidney disease PHM efforts for research and clinical care.
Presenters representing various perspectives -- public and private health systems, government, and research organizations -- shared opportunities, challenges, and successes in population health management. Many of these are profiled in further detail as Model Cases.
This page serves as an archive for slide decks and resources from the conference.
