Health Policy Trends in Kidney Disease

      As policy “wonks” interested in the changing fabric of payment and regulatory policies across nephrology, we are delighted to share this policy-focused issue of Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease (ACKD). In 2019, the Advancing American Kidney Health Initiative (AAKHI) was signed, which was an Executive Order of directives to the federal government aimed at (1) preventing or delaying progression to kidney failure, (2) increasing the use of alternative therapies for end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) other than in-center hemodialysis, and (3) increasing the transplantation rate.
