Proactive Patient Management
Two-way connectivity provides an opportunity for early intervention of dialysis issues in what has been predominately reactive care.
Remote Patient Management (RPM) enables patients to be effectively prioritized.
New APD cyclers with two-way RPM technology allows nurses to view dialysis details remotely in a timely manner, proactively manage clinical issues and make program changes as needed.
Establishing RPM in four UK renal units has allowed PD nurses to increase their time spent on proactive tasks by 32 percentage points.
Routine and reactive tasks were reduced, potentially contributing to shift of PD nurses’ behaviors.
Information received daily should allow for earlier intervention and prescription changes to address potential clinical issues.
Clinicians switching from APD to APD with Sharesource Connectivity Platform spent a greater proportion of time on proactive patient care, which may improve patient management and nurse efficiency.
