Trump to order overhaul of organ transplant and kidney dialysis systems
The Washington Post

The Trump administration pledged Wednesday to reduce end stage kidney disease by 25 percent by 2030, proposing to provide better care earlier in the disease’s progression and double the number of kidney transplants performed in the United States.

President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday morning that is also designed to move many of the more than 500,000 people receiving kidney dialysis away from commercial centers to less expensive in-home care.

Trump said the order delivers “ground-breaking action to millions of Americans suffering from kidney disease. It’s a big deal.”
