Novel applications of remote patient management to improve outcomes in peritoneal dialysis. Use of remote patient management (RPM) and digital health by patients, clinicians and healthcare systems is rapidly expanding driven by ubiquitous global availability, increasing individual dependence on technology for personal health information, the desire to expand healthcare access to remote and disenfranchised patients, and the need to improve health-economic outcomes. Simultaneously, global interest in home dialysis therapies is surging given clinical data, quality of life expectations and reduced health economic resource utilisation.
Our distinguished faculty will share their experience with RPM-embedded peritoneal dialysis (PD) cyclers to provide attendees with an understanding of the significant impact that this emerging technology can have on clinical outcomes..
