Kidney Care Partners Raises Alarm on Racial Disparities in Kidney Disease; Joins With National Minority Quality Forum to Educate Public, Congress During National Kidney Month
Date:3/3/2009

ams to help patients better manage their kidney disease to delay the onset of kidney failure and prevention initiatives to educate Americans about how to avoid developing it.

To better treat the growing numbers of patients with kidney failure - projected to increase by 85 percent between 2000 and 2015, according to a 2005 study in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN) - the legislation enacted in 2008 also establishes a continuous quality improvement initiative that will provide dialysis facilities and treating physicians with quality-based payments funded through a portion of an annual cost of care update.

"National Kidney Month in conjunction with our partnership with the Forum presents the kidney community with a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the more than 20 million Americans suffering from some form of kidney disease," said Thiry. "As we have seen all too often, many people do not know they have kidney disease until they are facing kidney failure - and with greater access to patient data and the recently enacted education provisions in place, we will have the power to stem this rising tide."
