Advancing Kidney Health in America
Ohio Kidney & Hypertension Center (OKHC) and providers will be in a partnership with the Medicare Innovation Center in the Kidney Care Choices Model (KCC) to improve care for Medicare Beneficiaries with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) stages 4 and 5 and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). The practice will be participating in the implementation period of the Kidney Care First model from 10/15/20 – 3/31/21.
The overall goals of this model include:
Later and better starts on dialysis for beneficiaries with CKD
Better coordination of care for patients with CKD and ESRD to reduce total cost of care
Improved access to and quality of person-centered treatment options
Increased access to kidney transplants
