PD Cost drivers for providers

High infection driven costs:                                         

Not capturing infections early results in an escalation from a $20 antibiotic based treatment to a $25,000 3 day hospitalization.

High compliance assurance costs: 

3 visits to clinic per patient per month, 1 with a nephrologist and 2 with a nurse practitioner.

No solution for remote treatment efficacy monitoring:

The efficacy of the dialysis process and peritoneal membrane permeability still relies on monthly blood draws.

Patient difficulties with PD

High infection related concerns:

High continuous concerns about infection origination.

No treatment visibility:

Have to visit clinic 3 times a month increasing burden of compliance.     

No access to individual safety data:

The lack of a dedicated patient interfacing management platform results in many unnecessary precautionary visits to dialysis outpatient clinics or emergency rooms.
