In October, estimated GFR (eGFR) reporting was modified by the laboratory at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Whereas previously eGFR was reported as two separate values i.e. ?if African American? or ?if non African American,? these two values are now reported as a range with the clinical note: ?Patients with more muscle mass and better nutritional status are more likely to be on the higher end of this range.? This change was made in an effort to reduce medical errors and improve health equity at our hospital and affiliated clinics.
In September 2018, HIVE began a partnership with the National Library of Medicine aimed at improving online access to evidence-based, inclusive sexual and reproductive health information for people affected by HIV and the providers who care for them.
