The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is a non-profit charitable organisation committed to providing life-saving dialysis, promoting kidney transplant and raising awareness of kidney disease prevention. As all patients are required to visit the dialysis centers (DCs) 3 times a week, for the rest of their lives, to receive life-saving dialysis and care, it is crucial that we right-site them to the DC that are close to their homes or workplace. We’ve developed a web-application and performed data analysis which aims to improve the overall right-sited percentage for new, current and future patients. Healthcare agencies which provide specialized services can consider our solution to increase efficiency.
