Health Reports & Data

Chronic Kidney Disease

Goal
Reduce new cases of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its complications, disability, death, and economic costs.

Overview

CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are significant public health problems in the United States and a major source of suffering and poor quality of life for those afflicted. They are responsible for premature death and exact a high economic price from both the private and public sectors.

Why is Chronic Kidney Disease Important?

Meeting the Healthy People 2020 objectives for CKD may lead to:

  • A reduction in the kidney disease burden
  • Longer lives and improved quality of life for people with CKD
  • Elimination of disparities among kidney disease patients

CKD and ESRD are very costly to treat. Nearly 25 percent of the Medicare budget is used to treat people with CKD and ESRD.1

OBJECTIVES AND SUB-OBJECTIVES
State Indicator Definition:
Percentage of adults who have ever been told by a health care professional that they had kidney disease (not including kidney stones, bladder infection, or incontinence). The national indicator is defined differently at the proportion of adults with measured urinary albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) and information to compute estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).

State Baseline:
3.3% (2011)

Most Recent State Value:
3.1% (2015)

HP2020 Target:
National: 13.3%

National Data Source:
National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey

State Data Source:
Hawaii Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System

Data Reports:
Hawaii-IBIS
HHM Report

State Indicator Definition:
Number of new end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients requiring renal replacement therapy residing in U.S. per 1,000,000 population (age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Standard Population). ESRD population includes hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients and kidney transplant recipients. The national indicator is defined in exactly the same way.

State Baseline:
411.4 new cases per 1,000,000 population (2010)

Most Recent State Value:
527.6 new cases per 1,000,000 population (2014)

National: 347.7 per 1,000,000 population

CKD-9
Reduce kidney failure due to diabetes
State Indicator Definition:
Number of new end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients whose primary cause of renal failure was due to diabetes residing in U.S. per 1,000,000 population (age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Standard Population). The national indicator is defined in exactly the same way.

State Baseline:
265.5 per 1,000,000 population (2010)

Most Recent State Value:
327.6 per 1,000,000 population (2014)

HP2020 Target:
National: 151.8 per 1,000,000 population
