Chronic Kidney Disease

Barriers to Adequate Chronic Kidney Disease Management

 As a healthcare organization or private practice, there are barriers you will need to overcome in order to successfully help your patients struggling to manage chronic kidney disease (CKD). 

Here are the most common ones:

  • The complexity and layers of health issues that contribute to chronic kidney disease which include: high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stress, poor nutrition and lifestyle choices, and other overlapping chronic conditions and symptoms. 
  • Misinformation from fad diets and detox regimes.  
  • The patients’ care team do not address or coordinate the patients’ needs for early intervention
  • Lack of evidence-based treatment plans and protocols by the healthcare team. 
  • Poor follow-through for patient participation and self-management in regards to taking medications consistently, monitoring blood pressure and glucose levels, and keeping their body weight under control.

Clinical Research Demonstrates Virtual Care Improves Chronic Kidney Disease Outcomes

For CKD patients, the future is bright. All with the help of virtual healthcare! RPM (remote patient monitoring) patients are able to use their devices to keep track of their appointments, monitor their blood glucose and other health issues, are reminded to take their medications as prescribed, and be given education based on the latest CKD research to maintain a healthy weight. In turn, physicians have the ability to remotely monitor their patients’ vital signs and other important health indicators in between face-to-face visits. This allows physicians to quickly identify any changes or problems to prevent potential health complications. Based on their findings, physicians and other providers can make the necessary adjustments to the patient’s care plan. As a result, RPM has been shown to effectively promote patient participation and engagement for a healthier lifestyle.
