Remote Patient Management in Home Dialysis: Planning Considerations for the Future
The objective of this chapter is to discuss the key factors to be considered when setting up a RPM program, and in particular how a RPM program can be beneficial in the management of home dialysis patients. RPM is already being utilized in many other disease states to a greater extent than the home dialysis population (heart failure, COPD, diabetes) to improve clinical outcomes. The key components needed to set up a RPM program will be discussed in this chapter. Furthermore, literature regarding the potential benefits to the home dialysis population will be reviewed along with barriers to the adoption of technology.PMID:34...

Can Remote Patient Management Improve Outcomes in Peritoneal Dialysis?
Contrib Nephrol. 2019;197:113-123. doi: 10.1159/000496306. Epub 2019 Apr 8.ABSTRACTRemote patient management (RPM) for patients receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD) is an emerging technology whereby a patients' biometric information (including weight, blood pressure, and other parameters) can be remotely monitored by providers along with important PD treatment information. As part of an evolving field of telemedicine, RPM has the potential to improve clinical outcomes for patients receiving PD, reduce resource utilization, and improve PD uptake, and positively impact a patients' experience with PD. Preliminary reports of RPM...

Remote Patient Management in Home Dialysis: Planning Considerations for the Future
The objective of this chapter is to discuss the key factors to be considered when setting up a RPM program, and in particular how a RPM program can be beneficial in the management of home dialysis patients. RPM is already being utilized in many other disease states to a greater extent than the home dialysis population (heart failure, COPD, diabetes) to improve clinical outcomes. The key components needed to set up a RPM program will be discussed in this chapter. Furthermore, literature regarding the potential benefits to the home dialysis population will be reviewed along with barriers to the adoption of technology.PMID:34...

Remote Patient Management in Peritoneal Dialysis: Opportunities and Challenges
Contrib Nephrol. 2019;197:54-64. doi: 10.1159/000496309. Epub 2019 Apr 8.ABSTRACTTelehealth describes the use of information and communication technologies to deliver healthcare remotely. Given the twin healthcare pressures of demographic change, where increased numbers of people suffer long-term conditions and there is requirement to deliver care ever more cost effectively, there is a considerable need to make the best use of these technologies in the redesign of clinical services. The opportunity for telehealth in peritoneal dialysis (PD) is to strengthen an already enabled population of resilient individuals who underta...

Remote Patient Management for Emerging Geographical Areas
Contrib Nephrol. 2019;197:143-153. doi: 10.1159/000496310. Epub 2019 Apr 8.ABSTRACTThe increase in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) worldwide is of great concern for many countries and has become a worldwide public health problem, which puts a burden on medical healthcare resources. The geographic variation of ESRD has been observed both locally and globally. Greater distance care facilities may impede timely delivery of good quality care and consequently increase the risk of mortality as well as decreased health-related quality of life. Patients living in remote and rural areas could use peritoneal dialysis (PD) as a home-b...

Remote Patient Management: Balancing Patient Privacy, Data Security, and Clinical Needs
Contrib Nephrol. 2019;197:35-43. doi: 10.1159/000496312. Epub 2019 Apr 8.ABSTRACTRemote monitoring of dialysis offers significant clinical benefits to patients and healthcare providers. However, the collection, transfer, and storage of large amounts of health data involved in remote monitoring require a careful consideration of privacy and data security concerns. Failure to adequately balance clinical utility with privacy has the potential to reduce patients' confidence in remote monitoring and could represent ethical and medicolegal risks for clinicians.
