Investigation of suitability and feasibility of home dialysis – An Evaluation to enhance capacity planning

Chronic Kidney Disease can require patients to undergo dialysis or transplantation as treatment options. Ontario Renal Network (ORN) is responsible for setting the strategic direction of services, their aim is to improve the quality of life of every patients. The project will try to define suitability criteria for home dialysis patients by analyzing historic patient data. Once factors affecting suitability are discovered, the success score for each patient can be developed. This analysis can then be applied to new incoming patients. This can then assist the ORN to allocate resources more appropriately and also to test and set viable potential targets.
