The population with concomitant heart and kidney disease (often termed ‘cardiorenal’ disease) is expected to grow, significantly impacting public health and healthcare utilization. Moreover, the cardiorenal nexus encompasses a bidirectional relationship that worsens prognosis and may complicate pharmacological management in often elderly and frail patients. Therefore, a more cohesive multidisciplinary team approach aiming to provide holistic, coordinated and specialized care would be a positive shift towards improving patient outcomes and optimizing healthcare resources. This article aims to define the organizational aspects and key elements for setting up a multidisciplinary cardiorenal clinical program as a potential healthcare model adapted to the particular characteristics of patients with cardiorenal disease.
