DCI Supports Initiatives to Improve Kidney Care in US

Chris Murphy Trump’s health care sabotage will gut protections for Connecticut

Trump said his order was meant to increase the supply of donated kidneys, make it easier for patients to undergo dialysis in the comfort of their own homes and prioritize the development of an artificial kidney. The president is delivering the speech at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in D.C. As of March 31, 2019, DaVita served 203,000 patients at 2,664 outpatient dialysis centers in the United States.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order underscoring these goals, and the US health agency said it would test new payment structures, including one that rewards end-stage renal disease facilities and doctors who meet targets in these areas.

The American Kidney Fund (AKF) commends the President and the Department of Health and Human Services for meaningfully addressing the epidemic of kidney disease-the fastest-growing noncommunicable disease in America. That won't happen overnight - some of the initiatives will require new government regulations.

The National Institutes of Health estimates chronic kidney disease affects roughly 14 percent of the US population. Mr. Trump told reporters Tuesday he approves of Acosta's job as labor secretary, but also claimed his administration will be looking very "carefully" at Acosta's handling of the previous Epstein case. "AKF is encouraged to continue our fight against this deadly disease with our spectrum of programs supporting patients from prevention through transplant".

Too often, transplant centers don't see a kidney patient until he or she has been on dialysis for years, Tevar said.

KCP is committed to respect the desires and interest of patients in selecting the modality they believe will work best for them, as well as working with the Administration to develop an appropriate path that will move us closer to the aspirational targets the President has referenced today.

The Mexican peso fell over 2% on the news and the benchmark stock index slid nearly 1.5%. Urzua also worked with Lopez Obrador from 2000 to 2003 when he was Mexico City mayor.

The president, backed by other administration officials and people who are living with kidney disease, also brought up other health care initiatives his administration has undertaken, like trying to lower prescription drug costs and making hospital billing more transparent.

With 37,000,000 Americans affected by kidney disease and 720,000 of those with kidney failure, the need could not be greater for patients, families, and caregivers.

"We are fighting by your side and are determined to get you the best treatment anywhere in the world", he said, adding later that his health care policies, like his foreign policies, put Americans first.

Almost 15% of the U.S. adult population was suffering from chronic kidney disease in 2018, fuelled by growing rates of diabetes and hypertension, according to the government's U.S. Renal Data System.

The order will attempt to speed up the time it takes to match patients and donors for kidney transplants. Patients typically must spend hours three or four times a week hooked to machines that filter waste out of their blood. Officials pointed to a study suggesting that in the long term, it may be possible to find 17,000 more kidneys and 11,000 other organs from deceased donors for transplant every year, the AP reported. DCI started DCI Donor Services to save and enhance lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

Clearer ways to measure how well the nation's 58 organ procurement organizations, or OPOs, collect donations from deceased donors.
