Workgroup statements from 15th ADQI consensus conference 2015

Published in Canadian Journal of Kidney Health and Disease

This collection showcases the workgroup statements from the 15th Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative (ADQI) Consensus Conference held in Banff, Canada in September, 2015.

ADQI conference brought together world experts across nephrology, critical care, epidemiology, informatics, and biostatistics to focus on the rapid emergence of Big Data in healthcare. ADQI has sought to provide evidence-based consensus, identify care gaps and facilitate future research across diverse issues such as the standardization of definitions for acute kidney injury, use of common nomenclature for renal replacement therapy, along with common procedures and treatments in critical care nephrology. The 15th ADQI conference centered on how Big Data applications, such as predictive analytics, automatic electronic alerting, integrated clinical decision support, and administrative data and can be leveraged to improve the quality of care and long-term outcomes for patients with AKI and those receiving renal replacement therapy.
