About the National Data
Data Source: United States Renal Data System (USRDS), NIH/NIDDK
Baseline: 35.9 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 years and over with chronic kidney disease received medical evaluation with serum creatinine, lipids, and urine albumin tests in 2016
Target: 48.8 percent
The data to track this objective come from the USRDS 5% Medicare sample. The USRDS data, data collection procedures, calculation methods, and other technical information are included in the USRDS Annual Data Report.
In 2021, the original baseline was revised from 34.0 to 35.9 percent due to USRDS rates re-estimation. There is some lag in reporting new cases of ESRD. Therefore, each year’s Annual Data Report includes re-estimates of earlier year rates. For more information see the USRDS Annual Data Reports. The target was adjusted from 46.7 to 48.8 percent to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method.
