Quality of Care

Improvements in quality of care can help prevent progression to ESRD as well as other adverse consequences of CKD. Testing for urine albumin occurs in less than a third of veterans using the VA health system, although this practice appears to be improving over time. Less than 40% patients with advanced stages of CKD were being seen by nephrologists in the VA health system in 2018.
