Renal Care

Renal Care

Our commitment to transforming renal care is focused on working with you to help achieve better outcomes for your patients as they sequence through their therapy journey; supporting the highest standards and access to care.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an urgent and growing global challenge. We estimate there are as many as 4 million end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients globally, and millions more people go undiagnosed; this is a situation projected to grow annually. While your patient population is growing, your time and cost resources are not increasing. We understand you need meaningful innovations and services that help you deliver better outcomes for more patients.

400,000 people approximately are at risk of kidney disease in Ireland. In 2018 there were approximately 292,000 haemodialysis treatments performed nationally in 24 Haemodialysis units with over 250 people on Home Therapy treatments also. 167 people successfully received a kidney transplant in 2018.1

For more than 60 years, we have partnered with the nephrology community to focus on pioneering care in both haemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD). We maintain that pioneering spirit today through new therapies like expanded haemodialysis (HDx) and remote patient management with Sharesource.

Renal home therapies

An increase in home therapies is widely regarded to be positive for both patients and healthcare professionals. Evidence exists that increasing levels of patient engagement can be clinically and economically effective2. Where patients are encouraged to take an active role as a key player in protecting their health, coping with acute episodes of ill health and managing their chronic disease, patients’ experience and satisfaction improves.

 

Advancing Global Renal Care

Access

We help to expand access to care by providing technologies and services that support care in different locations (home and in-centre) and create efficiencies.

 

Quality

Our commitment to care is driven by the belief that while current care models are good, there is an opportunity to expand through innovation.  

Simplified Care

We look to simplify the logistics of therapy, which may reduce the burden of care on patients.

Leading innovation with the SHARESOURCE Remote Patient Management platform.

SHARESOURCE extends your reach by allowing visibility to home patients’ adherence patterns, which may allow earlier intervention. The telehealth platform is the only globally available two-way technology that allows you to remotely monitor and manage therapy from your clinic, which includes the ability to change a patient’s prescription setting remotely. Patients can use an automated PD system with SHARESOURCE. Those who use this may find they have more confidence in performing their therapy at home. When healthcare providers report an increase in pre-emptive patient consultations and APD prescription adjustments, this in turn can help reduce the potential for complications that can lead to hospitalisation. This may lead to a reduction in resource utilisation and associated cost of complications. SHARESOURCE is featured with our HOMECHOICE CLARIA APD System.
