What is On-Site Home Hemodialysis?

On-site home hemodialysis is a growing movement in which dialysis providers and Skilled Nursing Facilities are partnering to offer Skilled Nursing Facility patients requiring dialysis with on-site treatments in the Skilled Nursing Facility they reside.
"The less time a patient has to spend outside of the facility the better, so the more services you can bring in house the better off your patients are." – SNF Administrator

Opportunity For A More Patient-Centric Approach

There are over 480,000 dialysis patients in the United States and approximately 65,000 of these patients reside in 
Skilled Nursing Facilities annually.1 By 2025, the population of dialysis patients is anticipated to grow to 700,000.1,2

On-Site Home Hemodialysis - A Better Care Model

On-Site Home Hemodialysis - A Better Care Model

On-site home hemodialysis offers Skilled Nursing Facility patients requiring dialysis the opportunity to receive treatments on-site at the Skilled Nursing Facility where they reside.

Benefits of On-Site Home Hemodialysis

On-site home hemodialysis eliminates the need for transportation to off-site dialysis treatments, usually at least three times per week.

For patients who may not be able to tolerate abrupt hemodynamic changes often associated with conventional hemodialysis three times per week, on-site home hemodialysis offers individualized treatment options, including more frequent therapy when medically necessary.

Roles and Responsibilities

Effective on-site home hemodialysis programs rely on a strong partnership between dialysis providers and Skilled Nursing Facilities to manage everything from staff training, to equipment and care plans.
