The BC Renal Agency (BCRA) mandate is to plan and coordinate the care of patients with kidney disease throughout the province.
This planning and coordination is accomplished through collaborative partnerships of renal care professionals, working with members of health authorities, the Kidney Foundation, and UBC.
As part of the mandate, the establishment and maintenance of an integrated comprehensive information system, which serves clinical, administrative and research purposes is used in planning and evaluative endeavours.
The BCRA is unique in Canada, and in North America, as a model for integrated health care planning, policy and implementation within a regionalizedstructure for patients with kidney disease. Consensus guidelines for patient care, identification of key elements important to evaluate regarding patient outcomes, and the establishment of provincial contracts have all contributed to the ability of the BCRA to facilitate the delivery of seamless care for kidney disease patients.
