The Ontario Renal Network is a division of CCO that advises the Ontario government on chronic kidney disease. We also manage the delivery of chronic kidney disease services in the province. The aim is to reduce the burden of this disease on Ontarians and the healthcare system.
Our evidence-based decisions and advice help provide effective planning, programs and funding to support a continuously improving kidney care system in Ontario.
- Fund, organize and manage the delivery of kidney care services in Ontario in a consistent and coordinated manner
- Prevent or delay the progression of chronic kidney disease
- Broaden appropriate patient care options
- Improve the quality of care for people at all stages of chronic kidney disease
- Build a world-class system for delivering care to Ontarians living with chronic kidney disease
We are guided by a 4-year strategic plan, the Ontario Renal Plan. This provincial road map lays out how we will work together with Regional Renal Programs, patients and families, and partners to improve the lives of people at risk for and living with chronic kidney disease.
To fulfil our commitments in the Ontario Renal Plan, our work focuses on:
- empowering and supporting patients and family members to be active in their care
- integrating patient care throughout the kidney care journey
- improving patients’ access to kidney care
Our provincial office connects and coordinates a province-wide network of Regional Renal Programs. Provincial and regional medical leads and regional directors from across Ontario help oversee and support the work of our network.
