“Our analysis demonstrated that the multidisciplinary care program provided better health care and reduced renal replacement therapy in patients with advanced chronic kidney disease. By decreasing hospitalizations, emergent start, and the need for renal replacement therapy, the multidisciplinary care program was cost-effective.”
