Using Health Information Technology to Identify and Manage CKD Populations

Background: Population health management (PHM) strategies have the potential to improve the
quality of CKD care, but significant barriers remain to leveraging existing health
information technology (health IT) and electronic health record (EHR) data for PHM
in CKD. Additionally, efforts to overcome these barriers and implement PHM
strategies for CKD often are developed in isolation, with limited opportunities to
share best practices and lessons learned.
   
Objectives: To advance PHM approaches to improve kidney health, the NIDDK will host a
conference to identify best practices for using the wealth of information within
existing EHRs and health IT systems to deliver optimal care and manage CKD
patients in real time. Accordingly, this conference aims 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.

NIH Visitor Information 

The John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center is located on the NIH Campus in Building 35A. For a map, general information, and directions to and around the NIH Campus, visit http://www.ors.od.nih.gov/maps/Pages/NIH-Visitor-Map.aspx.

NIH Security

The NIH, like all Federal Government facilities, has instituted security measures to ensure the safety of NIH employees, patients, and visitors.

Perimeter Security
All visitor vehicles, including taxicabs, hotel and airport shuttles, delivery trucks, and vans will be inspected before being allowed on campus. Visitors will be asked to show one (1) form of identification (a government-issued photo ID:  driver’s license, passport, green card, etc.) and to state the purpose of their visit. Be sure to allow at least 15–20 minutes for this vehicle inspection procedure.

Building Security
Due to the checking of IDs at the perimeter, employees and visitors will not be required to show their IDs again to gain access to the majority of buildings on the NIH Campus during the normal business day.

Employees and visitors should continue to wear their identification prominently at all times while on campus. Guards will remain at certain buildings to address specific program requirements, such as sensitive research and safety concerns. At building entrances where guards are posted: 

  • Employees must show a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-issued photo ID (for example, your NIH-issued ID badge).
  • Visitors may be required to log in, wear a visitor’s pass, and be escorted by an employee through the building.
  • Visitors may be required to pass through a metal detector and have bags, backpacks, or purses inspected or x-rayed as they enter buildings.
  • Security staff will confiscate any suspicious or potentially dangerous materials. U.S. code prohibits bringing any dangerous weapons onto federal property, including anything with a blade longer than 2½ inches. Meeting participants may want to leave extra bags or personal materials at their hotel to minimize the time needed for inspection.

Weekday Pedestrian Campus Access
