Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA)

 

Welcome to The Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA).

The Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA) collects and reports the incidence, prevalence and outcome of dialysis treatment and kidney transplantation for patients with end stage kidney disease across Australia and New Zealand. The Registry was established in 1977 from the merger of separate dialysis and transplant registries to provide information on the patterns and outcomes of dialysis and kidney transplantation, and to support safety and quality activities and the planning of appropriate health services.

To improve the quality of care and outcomes for people with end stage kidney disease in Australia and New Zealand by:

  • collecting and analysing accurate and comprehensive data from all patients receiving long term dialysis or kidney transplantation in Australia and New Zealand,
  • producing and disseminating reports,
  • informing development of practice, policy and health services,
  • working with stakeholders to improve the understanding of kidney disease and outcomes of treatment.

The Registry will encourage and enable the highest quality of care for people in Australia and New Zealand with end stage kidney disease by providing information that is complete, accurate, clear, relevant, readily available and timely.
