Affecting 8% of Americans, chronic kidney disease, or CKD, poses a high risk for both adverse cardiovascular outcomes and progression to end-stage kidney disease. Notably, its disproportionate impact on minority communities along with the fragmented nature of care has contributed to a significant cost burden in the US health care system and worsening health outcomes for patients.
