BACKGROUND: Electronic alerts (e-alerts) for acute kidney injury (AKI) in hospitalized patients are increasingly being implemented; however, their impact on outcomes remains uncertain. METHODS: We performed a systematic review. Electronic databases and grey literature were searched for original studies published between 1990 and 2016. Randomized, quasi-randomized, observational and before-and-after studies that included hospitalized patients, implemented e-alerts for AKI and described their impact on one of care processes, patient-centred outcomes or resource utilization measures were included...

BACKGROUND: Reducing readmissions is an international priority in healthcare. Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common, serious and also a global concern. This analysis evaluates AKI as a candidate risk factor for unplanned readmissions and determines the reasons for readmissions. METHODS: GLOMMS-II is a large population cohort from one health authority in Scotland, combining hospital episode data and complete serial biochemistry results through data-linkage. 16453 people (2623 with AKI and 13830 without AKI) from GLOMMS-II who survived an index hospital admission in 2003 were used to identify the causes of and predict readmissions...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is often detected late, leading to worse clinical outcomes. In 2012, we pioneered an AKI-alerting system for primary care clinicians (PCCs). We retrospectively analysed the alerts and evaluated PCC satisfaction to assess the feasibility of the system. METHODS: The study used a 2-pronged approach. AKI alerts, generated by an algorithm designed by University College London Hospital biochemistry department between June 2012 and June 2014, were analysed to reveal the demographics and outcomes of each patient generating an alert...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The use of electronic alerts (e-alerts) may increase the detection rate of acute kidney injury (AKI) since they are sensitive to small changes in serum creatinine. Our aim was to follow-up a cohort of patients presenting to hospital from the community with AKI (community-acquired AKI [c-AKI]), detected through the use of e-alerts, and describe their short-term outcomes regardless of whether they were subsequently admitted to hospital. METHODS: Blood samples for all hospital attenders from the community either to the Accidents and Emergency department or one of the acute care areas of the hospital during a 6-month period (November 1, 2013-April 30, 2014) were screened for presence of c-AKI using a locally developed e-alerts system based on Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes criteria...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common and serious condition, but the process of care for patients with AKI is currently suboptimal. Automated AKI electronic (e)-alert systems are expected to improve the process of care and patient outcomes. SUMMARY: There have been several reports on the implementation of e-alert systems, which have the potential to improve patient outcomes, but evidence of their effectiveness has not been established. There are some challenges to the development of better e-alert systems...

BACKGROUND: Cardio-Renal Syndromes were first classified in 2008 and divided into five subtypes. The type 1 Cardio-Renal Syndrome (CRS) is characterized by acute decompensation of heart failure leading to acute kidney injury (AKI). Bradyarrhythmia was not mentioned in the classification as a cause for low cardiac output (CO) in type 1 CRS. Besides, CRS was not previously associated with central nervous system (CNS) injury despite the fact that cardiac, renal and neurological diseases can coexist...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication of acute illnesses with significant impact on the mortality and morbidity. Early recognition of AKI allows clinicians to provide prophylactic interventions and to improve the outcomes of this deadly syndrome. Growing utilization and capabilities of electronic health records allow AKI risk stratification and early recognition with a potential effect on the processes of care and outcomes. We evaluate the current level of evidence on the impact of the AKI e-alert on the processes of care and outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Acute kidney injury (AKI) contributes to morbidity and mortality, and its care is often suboptimal and/or delayed. The Acute Kidney Outreach to Reduce Deterioration and Death (AKORDD) study is a large pilot testing provision of early specialist advice, to improve outcomes for patients with AKI. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: This before and after study will test an Outreach service for adult patients with AKI, identified using the national algorithm. During the 2-month before phase, AKI outcomes (30-day mortality, need for dialysis or AKI stage deterioration) will be observed in the intervention and control hospitals and their respective community areas; no interventions will be delivered...

BACKGROUND: Clinical decision support systems, including electronic alerts, ideally provide immediate and relevant patient-specific information to improve clinical decision-making. Despite the growing capabilities of such alerts in conjunction with an expanding electronic medical record, there is a paucity of information regarding their perceived usefulness. We surveyed healthcare providers' opinions concerning the practicality and efficacy of a specific text-based automated electronic alert for acute kidney injury (AKI) in a single hospital during a randomized trial of AKI alerts...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common and associated with extremely poor outcomes. While strategies to tackle deficiencies in basic care delivery are advocated, robust testing of their effectiveness is also needed. The Tackling AKI study was designed to test whether a complex intervention (consisting of an e-alert, care bundle and education programme) can be successfully implemented across a range of UK hospitals, and whether this will deliver improved patient outcomes. This multicentre, pragmatic clinical trial will employ a cluster randomised stepped wedge design to study this in all adult patients who sustain AKI in the 5 participating hospitals over a 2-year period...

Recent public health concerns regarding commercial food products have increased the need to develop an automated method to detect food product-related health events. We developed and verified a method for the early detection of potentially harmful events caused by commercial food products. We collected data from daily internet-based questionnaires examining the presence or absence of symptoms and information about food purchased by the respondents. Using these data, we developed a method to detect possible health concerns regarding commercialized food products...

BACKGROUND: Early recognition of acute kidney injury (AKI) is important. It frequently develops first in the community. KDIGO-based AKI e-alert criteria may help clinicians recognize AKI in hospitals, but their suitability for application in the community is unknown. METHODS: In a large renal cohort (n = 50 835) in one UK health authority, we applied the NHS England AKI 'e-alert' criteria to identify and follow three AKI groups: hospital-acquired AKI (HA-AKI), community-acquired AKI admitted to hospital within 7 days (CAA-AKI) and community-acquired AKI not admitted within 7 days (CANA-AKI)...

INTRODUCTION: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in hospitalised patients. It imposes significant risk for major morbidity and mortality. Moreover, patients suffering an episode of AKI consume considerable health resources. Recently, a number of studies have evaluated the implementation of automated electronic alerts (e-alerts) configured from electronic medical records (EMR) and clinical information systems (CIS) to warn healthcare providers of early or impending AKI in hospitalised patients...

Electronic medical records and clinical information systems are increasingly used in hospitals and can be leveraged to improve recognition and care for acute kidney injury. This Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative (ADQI) workgroup was convened to develop consensus around principles for the design of automated AKI detection systems to produce real-time AKI alerts using electronic systems. AKI alerts were recognized by the workgroup as an opportunity to prompt earlier clinical evaluation, further testing and ultimately intervention, rather than as a diagnostic label...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a serious condition that is associated with an increased risk of death, long hospital stays, and high healthcare costs. The best chance of ameliorating the severity of AKI and improving its outcomes is through early recognition and intervention. Electronic health records (EHRs) have now become an integrated part of medical practice in most clinical settings worldwide. Appropriate use of EHRs potentially improves patient care, while poorly designed EHRs could result in unintended consequences...
