Differentiate Services While Addressing Overall Quality of Care

As the population requiring dialysis continues to climb, additional solutions to meet the demand are needed. Home hemodialysis offers clinicians an opportunity to tailor treatments to the individual needs of each patient, including more frequent and / or longer treatments when medically necessary. More frequent therapy has shown improvements in patients’ clinical and quality of life outcomes,1,2 and home is the most practical location for these treatments.

Easing Patients Into Dialysis

Easing Patients Into Dialysis

Many patients begin their dialysis experience by crashing onto in-center treatments due to disease progression, infection, or hospital treatments. Transitional Dialysis is a patient centric approach to gently easing patients into dialysis using your existing in-center infrastructure and staff.

Reduce Transportation Costs

Reduce Transportation Costs

Patients in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) who require dialysis therapy are typically transported to and from a dialysis clinic three times a week often at an additional cost. NxStage products and therapies can help you eliminate these costs with an on-site dialysis solution.

Differentiating your nursing home by providing on-site dialysis may also increase hospital referrals and clients.
