About

Approximately 6% of the UK population has CKD and are at risk of progressive renal failure and premature cardiovascular disease. Early detection and appropriate management can reduce this risk.

Projects to improve care for CKD patients by both Greater Manchester (GM), and Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland (LNR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRCs) have led to the creation of IMPAKT™. This is a programme of work taking place in primary care to help identify people with CKD and lead to improved health outcomes for patients.
IMPAKT™ is designed specifically for use on GP practice systems and consists of a MIQUEST query based tool which analyses data from your practice. A series of tailored, user friendly improvement reports using your practice data are available from the My IMPAKT™ section of this website to help you improve the care of your CKD patients. All patient data will be fully anonymised before it is uploaded to this website.

IMPAKT™ will:
  • Analyse your existing CKD register to identify any:
    • Inaccuracies in CKD coding
    • Patients with incorrect proteinuria coding in relation to their CKD diagnosis
  • Find eGFR evidence for any patients not coded as CKD to:
    • Recommend coding stages where appropriate
    • Identify patients who require repeat tests to confirm CKD diagnosis
  • Measure risk of progressive CKD using:
    • Most recent eGFR and proteinuria data
    • A number of combined risk factors
    • Data on prescribed drugs known to be damaging to the kidneys
  • Identify where coded CKD patients:
    • Have not been tested for proteinuria
    • Are not meeting NICE recommended blood pressure targets
    • Require a minor intervention to their care to meet NICE CKD guidelines
    • Could be considered for referral to secondary care
