Percent of patients with hematocrit 33 or greater


Management of End Stage Renal Disease

Measure Title

Percent of people (age 0-69) who get on the waitlist within one year of renal failure, by

  • Race
  • Ethnicity

Data Source

National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, U.S. Renal Data System.

Denominator

Number of persons with end stage renal disease on dialysis under age 70.

Numerator

Management of End Stage Renal Disease

Measure Title

Percent of patients with treated chronic kidney failure who receive a transplant within three years of renal failure.

Measure Source

Healthy People 2010, measure 4-6.

Tables

Percent of people (age 0-69) transplanted within 3 years of renal failure by

  • Race
  • Ethnicity

Data Source

National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, U.S. Renal Data System.

Denominator

Medicare-eligible persons with end stage renal disease on dialysis under age 70.

Numerator

Number of persons under age 70 registered on the kidney transplant waiting list receiving a kidney within 3 years of registering.

Comments

Note that the Healthy People 2010 measure refers to "with three years of registration on a waiting list". Measuring transplants within three years of renal failure yields a more complete picture of access to transplantation.
