Event Details

Meeting Summary

Background

NIDDK’s October 2015 Using Health Information Technology to Identify and Manage CKD Populations meeting identified priority needs to support CKD population health management, including 1) a computable phenotype to identify CKD patients, 2) an electronic care plan template for CKD and 3) a business case to justify investment in CKD population management infrastructure. In response, NIDDK’s National Kidney Disease Education Program (NKDEP) launched three working groups to address these needs.

Meeting Objectives

  • Update the kidney community on progress and challenges in developing the CKD care plan, phenotype and business case.
  • Ensure input from the kidney community to address challenges and refine working group products.
  • Discuss additional priorities and next steps for using health IT to improve CKD research and care.

Participants are encouraged to attend in person; however, webinar information will be provided for remote participation. For additional information or to request accessible versions of documents, please contact Jenna Norton.
