As part of the executive order, HHS has called for: reducing the number of Americans developing end-stage renal disease by 25% by 2030; having 80% of new ESRD patients in 2025 either receiving dialysis at home or receiving a transplant; and doubling the number of kidneys available for transplant by 2030. Their members have worked to remove barriers to accessing home dialysis, which include establishing the Kidney Disease Education program through which clinicians can promote modality choices, aligning of home and in-center payment rates to eliminate disincentives for providing home dialysis, and promoting changes to coverage policies to support home hemodialysis.

- President Trump will announce changes to improve the care for people with kidney disease on Wednesday, July 10, at 11am.

More than 30 million American adults have chronic kidney disease, costing Medicare a staggering $113 billion.

But the changes won't happen overnight as some of the initiatives will require new government regulations. "It's a game changer", said American Society of Nephrology (ASN) President Mark E. Rosenberg, MD, FASN. Mr. Trump told reporters Tuesday he approves of Acosta's job as labor secretary, but also claimed his administration will be looking very "carefully" at Acosta's handling of the previous Epstein case.

Medicare payment changes that would provide a financial incentive for doctors and clinics to help kidney patients stave off end-stage disease by about six months.

Increase affordable alternative treatment options, educate patients on treatment alternatives, and encourage the development of artificial kidneys.

The president, backed by other administration officials and people who are living with kidney disease, also brought up other health care initiatives his administration has undertaken, like trying to lower prescription drug costs and making hospital billing more transparent. The model should broaden the range of care and Medicare payment options available to potential participants with a focus on delaying or preventing the onset of kidney failure, preventing unnecessary hospitalizations, and increasing the rate of transplants.

"Over the last decade, the kidney care community has improved clinical outcomes and longevity while creating greater access to high-quality care for all patients", said Bryan Becker, M.D., chief medical officer for DaVita Integrated Kidney Care. Patients typically must spend hours three or four times a week hooked to machines that filter waste out of their blood. Trump said it may be possible to find 17,000 more kidneys and 11,000 other organs from deceased donors for transplant every year. The administration is relying on the innovation center even as it argues in federal court that the law that created it is unconstitutional and should be struck down entirely.

Expand support for living donors by paying for lost wages and childcare expenses.

CareDx, Inc., headquartered in Brisbane, California, is a molecular diagnostics company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value diagnostic solutions for transplant recipients. Some do a better job than others, but today's performance standards are self-reported, varying around the country and making it hard for government regulators or the OPOs themselves to take steps to improve. Unlike the medical advances in transplantation, "we haven't really made big dents and progress and moves in increasing cadaveric organs or increasing live donor options".
