Unadjusted change in the slope and intercept of the eGFR level over time among incident dialysis patient populations initiating dialysis before and after automated eGFR reporting

  • Data are presented for eGFR as a continuous variable. The results were similar when examining the proportion of patients initiated with eGFR≥10.5 and ≥12 ml/min per m2 (data not shown). Results were based on an unadjusted interrupted time series.
