Improve your patients’ care with home dialysis
Home dialysis helps patients achieve better kidney health over the long term. With home-first care, patients can fit dialysis sessions into their life more easily and frequently, including with overnight treatments.
Most nephrologists believe greater frequency is paramount — 59 percent of nephrologists agree that increasing frequency of dialysis beyond three times a week significantly improves clinical outcomes.1 With at-home access to dialysis, patients can receive the care they need to thrive.
And patients do thrive with at-home care. Studies show that patients receiving longer, more frequent hemodialysis generally live longer, healthier lives.2,3,4 And patients receiving peritoneal dialysis are more likely to receive a kidney transplant, than those on conventional hemodialysis.5
Home dialysis is the choice most nephrologists would make for themselves and their loved ones. In one survey, half of all nephrologists said they would prefer at-home dialysis for their patients, and 63 percent said they would recommend home dialysis to their close friends and family.6
Why home dialysis works
With at-home dialysis, patients can more frequently access the positive benefits of dialysis, meaning they can be healthier, for longer.
- Fewer hospital stays — Short, daily hemodialysis is associated with a significant decrease in hospitalization.7
- More comfort during treatments — Nocturnal dialysis can help patients receive longer, daily treatments in a more convenient and comfortable setting.
- Greater chance of transplant — Patients receiving peritoneal dialysis are more likely to receive a kidney transplant, than those on conventional hemodialysis.5
