Abstract

Background. Regional differences in haemoglobin values and process care measures were examined using data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Clinical Performance Measures Project. It was posited that regional differences in haemoglobin values are consequent upon differences in components of clinical practice. Methods. A national random sample of 8336 adult, in-centre haemodialysis patients, stratified by the 18 regional ESRD Networks, was drawn. Information was collected for October-December 1998. Multivariable stepwise linear and logistic regression analyses were performed to identify variables associated with haemoglobin. Linear regression analysis was used to identify variables associated with Epo/Hb index (mean weight-adjusted treatment level erythropoietin (Epo) dose divided by mean haemoglobin). Results. The percentage of patients with haemoglobin concentration
