Kidney Awareness Registry and Education

Kidney Awareness Registry and Education

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of two different interventions aimed at improving health outcomes among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), who are at high risk of CKD progression. Specifically, this study will examine how best to implement a provider-level intervention (access to a CKD-registry) and a patient-oriented intervention (automated telephone self-management (ATSM) + health coach) on patient health outcomes, with a 2x2 factorial design.

No pharmaceutical medication involved
Patients and healthy individuals accepted

Behavioral - CKD Registry

Primary care providers (PCPs) will have access to a Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) registry for patient care. The registry will: identify patients with CKD notify PCPs of a patients' CKD status provide PCP outreach with NKDEP guidelines and patient educational materials

Behavioral - ATSM + Health Coach

Patients with CKD will participate in an Automated Telephone Self Management (ATSM) program, which blends automated phone calls with live targeted call-backs from a health coach. Patients will receive bi-weekly automated calls for 52 weeks in their native language, consisting of pre-recorded queries pertaining to CKD management, preventive services, and lifestyle changes. Patients will interact with the system using a touch-tone keypad; Out-of-range values or invalid responses will prompt a live more on

Behavioral - Usual care

Primary care providers will manage their patients with CKD per usual care. Patients will receive usual care.
