Paradigm Shift of CKD Integrated Care

Introduction: 

     Taiwan has the highest prevalence and incidence rate of end stage renal disease (ESRD) in the world and it consumes national health insurance more than 20 billion Taiwan dollars every year. Therefore, lower the incidence rate of ESRD is one of the major goals in KMU nephrology division. Regardless of the cost, our division not only put effort into arranging manpower but also collecting material to integrate chronic kidney disease care (CKD) program and set up the first institute of kidney health promotion in Taiwan in 2003. Because of the outstanding results, our institute has been awarded “first degree institute” for 5 years in succession and the patients have very high degree of satisfaction (up to 90%). We also established The Faculty of Renal Care in 2003, with many graduates devoting themselves into CKD care and renal health promotion. In addition to clinical practice and training, the characteristics of our CKD care include performing the related researches vigorously, helping Health Promotion Administration, Ministry of Health and Welfareto set up CKD care guidelines, obtaining epidemiology resources by screening community residents, giving speeches and visits to educate primary medical institute to participate in CKD care and cooperating with health administrative to popularize CKD care to general.

     We developed iCKD Healthcare Technology Platform to innovate the care of Chronic Kidney Disease in 2012. This project is supported by Innovative Technology Application Service Program in Ministry of Economic Affair, aims to encourage CKD patients to maintain health behavior through mobile education. We established mobile application and website to improve the interaction between patients and clinical staffs. Being the benchmark of CKD care and research in Asia is the goal to achieve and we will work hard on it.
