ICD-Pieces (Parkland Intelligent e-Coordination and Evaluation System) trial is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Healthcare Systems(HCS) Collaboratory demonstration project to improve management of patients with a triad of Chronic Kidney Disease, hypertension and diabetes with Pieces in four HCS including Parkland, Texas Health Resources (THR), ProHealth Physicians Incorporation and North Texas VA. Pieces is a decision support technology platform created by Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation(PCCI).
The primary objective is to test the hypothesis that a collaborative model of primary care and subspecialty care intervention enhanced by Pieces and practice facilitators compared to standard clinical practice will reduce all-cause hospitalizations in patients with coexisting chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension.
Secondary objectives are: a)Test if implementation of the collaborative model will reduce 30-day readmissions, emergency room visits, cardiovascular events or deaths and disease-specific hospitalizations; b) Develop and validate risk predictive models for disease-specific hospitalizations, all-cause hospitalizations, 30-day readmissions, emergency room visits, cardiovascular events and deaths for patients with chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. c) Collect demographic and clinical data to assist phenotyping patients with chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension. d) Obtain safety data including Acute Kidney Injury, progression of chronic kidney disease, electrolyte disturbances and medication errors, and drug toxicity; e) Collect resource utilization information including hospitalizations, emergency room visits, outpatient visits, and diagnostic or therapeutic procedures completed.
Candidate patients in selected clinics will be enrolled over a period of 2 years and followed for 12 months. Pieces will ascertain both primary and secondary outcomes from the Electronic Health Record supported with data from the Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council (DFWHC), Accountable Care Organization (ACO) reports and VA database, and deaths from Social Security Index (SSI) data.

Experimental: Collaborative model
Group to receive Collaborative model of primary care and subspecialty care enhanced by Pieces and Practice Facilitator
Other: Collaborative Model of Primary care and Subspecialty care
Pieces will access Electronic Health Record for all patients receiving care at the participating sites to detect patients with a triad of chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension, facilitate management and monitor outcomes. To maximize successful implementation of care, a Practice Facilitator will be at each site with standardized role training using a curriculum based on the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Practice Facilitation Handbook. Specific interventions are maintaining BP less than 140/90 mmHg, use of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), treatment with statins, aiming for glycosylated Hemoglobin (HgA1C) at the recommended target, and avoiding nephrotoxic medications. Additional interventions include chronic kidney disease education for Primary Care Providers (PCP) and patients using National Kidney Disease Education Program (NKDEP) materials.

No Intervention: Standard Care
Group to receive regular care
- All cause hospitalizations for patients with a triad of chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Hospitalization rates at 12 months for all study participants, capturing all cause unplanned hospitalizations including both regular hospitalizations as currently defined by CMS and observation status overnight. Hospitalizations will be ascertained from Electronic Health Record of each participating healthcare system with assistance from Pieces.
- 30-day all cause readmissions (for those patients who have an index hospitalization) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]30-day all cause readmissions (for those patients who have an index hospitalization), emergency room visits, cardiovascular events and deaths, and disease-specific hospitalizations for cardiovascular complications, congestive heart failure, volume overload, hypertension complications, acute coronary syndrome, myocardial infarction, coronary/peripheral revascularization, stroke, amputation/limb ischemia, uncontrolled diabetes, hypoglycemia, diabetes complications, acute kidney injury, hyperkalemia, electrolyte disturbances, medication errors, drug toxicity and infections.
