Supporting patients with kidney disease, dialysis, and chronic kidney diseases.
Chronic kidney disease is a common and costly disease. Not only is prevalence expected to grow in future years, CKD can also lead to additional chronic conditions and increased readmission rates. However, when you inspire patients to get more involved in their own care, behavioral change becomes easier. Patients who actively manage their CKD could see their conditions stabilize.
Our Nephrology Library of patient education is designed to provide CKD educational resources that will support patients, their families, and caregivers throughout their care, whether it’s in a hospital, in a dialysis clinic, or at home.
The connection between chronic kidney disease and other chronic illnesses like diabetes and high blood pressure makes it critical for patients to be informed and understand how improper management or care, combined with poor lifestyle behaviors, can compound their overall health with dire complications, including readmission to the hospital.
The HealthClips Nephrology Library addresses key learning objectives specific to living with chronic kidney disease and treating CKD, including dialysis. This comprehensive Nephrology Library includes:
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Joint Commission DSC Certification for Chronic Kidney Disease
- CMS Bundled Payments for Care Improvement
- CMS Quality Measures All-cause Hospital Readmission Measure (NQF #1785) for Chronic Kidney Disease, Renal: End Sage Renal Disease
- HCAHPS / Patient Satisfaction Discharge
Multiplatform delivery tools enhance the reach and efficiency of these resources through easy accessibility when and where you need it most, while EMR integration supports assignment and tracking of education within staff workflow.
