In this special feature article, we discuss the development of
collaborative care models in chronic disease management and the need for
such initiatives in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We identify
telemedicine as a potential key element to collaborative care in CKD.
Telenephrologyuas telemedicine would be referred to as it is applied in
CKDuwould be comprised of various technology platforms and applications,
which are described here. We describe a range of scenarios in which
telenephrology would facilitate collaborative care in CKD and how it
would be the basis for patient-oriented research to assess improvements
in outcomes in the future.
