How will the CKD Data Registry use the CKD information?
The de-identified CKD data will be used in several primary areas. These include: 1. Quality Assessment and Improvement analysis comparing practice patterns with an aggregated level of measurement across all participants. 2. Clinical research sponsors may prefer to work with practices that have the electronic data collection and organization capabilities offered by the CKD Data Registry. Thus participation in the CKD Data Registry may generate greater opportunities to participate in clinical studies. 3. Annual CKD Reporting will be provided to analyze the entire data registry and provide a yearly report. Please see the Annual Report Specification for more information.
