Satellite Healthcare has signed a three-year agreement with NxStage Medical Inc. that includes NxStage’s Nx2me Connected Health platform for their patients performing home hemodialysis with the NxStage System One.
A component of the Nx2me platform is the iPad app, which monitors and captures patients’ treatment data and wirelessly sends it to their center after each treatment. Dialysis center staff can access the treatment data using the Nx2me Clinician Portal to review and follow treatment adherence and progress.
“This partnership strengthens our Re-Imagine Home goal to change the landscape of home dialysis with the design of an industry-leading home dialysis model,” said Satellite Healthcare CEO Rick Barnett. “We identified a number of ways to empower patients, including how technology like Nx2me can be a leading factor in removing barriers to choosing and staying with home dialysis.”
