Abstract

The eMAP:CKD program has shown an improvement in identification of patients at risk of CKD, appropriate testing and management of these patients, as well as increased documentation of CKD diagnosis entered into the EHRs. We have demonstrated efficacy in overcoming the verified gap between current and best practice in primary care. The success of the pilot program has encouraging implications for use across the primary care community as a whole.
