Clinical Trial Summary

In the Kidney ACTion study, CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) patients at increased risk of progression to ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) will be randomly assigned to either standard of care in a specialist nephrology outpatient clinic or to receiving CKD care supported by a novel AI-supported (Artificial Intelligence) software solution.


Clinical Trial Description

The Advancing American Kidney Health (AAKH) initiative has the goal of an ambitious 25% reduction of ESRD incidence by 2030. There is a lack of successful integrated care programs to reach this goal. The CKD population is very heterogeneous, this explains the different risk of progression to ESRD in different patients. However, Guidelines (GLs) for the treatment of CKD patients address risk factors identified in the CKD population at large. Thus, all CKD patients at the same stage receive similar treatments no matter the specific risk of developing ESRD. Up to 5.9% of Europeans have CKD stages 3-5. Treating this huge number of patients would strain health systems from both the organizational and economical point of view. It is reasonable to think that dedicating a personalized management specifically to CKD patients at high risk of progression would be cost-effective. GLs include behavioral (e.g. lifestyle, nutrition) as well as medical (e.g. drug therapy) interventions. Although patient's engagement and empowerment play a pivotal role in successful disease treatment, there is lack of evidence on practices to foster them in CKD patients. Kidney ACTion is a program that supports nephrologists in predicting disease progression for CKD patients and developing multidisciplinary, personalized, evidence-based treatment and care plans. Patient engagement and empowerment is a fundamental part of the program. ;
