AMIA automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) with the SHARESOURCE remote patient management platform is the first and only APD system to include user-friendly features that help guide end-stage renal disease patients through home peritoneal dialysis (PD) therapy, while keeping them remotely connected with their healthcare providers.
AMIA was designed to support more patients being able to administer PD therapy in the comfort of their home with intuitive features, such as voice guidance, a touchscreen control panel and the SHARESOURCE remote patient management platform. AMIA's compact design also means it can be packed in a car or taken onboard an airplane, enabling patients to conduct therapy when traveling for work or leisure.
SHARESOURCE allows healthcare providers to securely view their patients’ recently completed home dialysis-related treatment data that is automatically collected after each PD session. Healthcare providers can then act on this information by remotely adjusting their patients’ home therapy prescription without requiring them to travel to the clinic.
Guiding Patients at Home
Remote Patient Management
SHARESOURCE remote patients management platform extends healthcare providers' reach by allowing visibility to home patients’ adherence patterns, which may allow earlier intervention. Patients using an automated PD system with SHARESOURCE have reported more confidence in performing their therapy at home1. Likewise, healthcare providers are reporting an increase in preemptive patient consults and APD prescription adjustments2-3, which may help reduce the potential for complications that can lead to hospitalization. Healthcare providers also report a reduction in resource utilization and associated cost4.
Simple, voice-guided, step-by-step instructions guide patients through detailed instructions on how to set up and complete their treatments. Built-in technical support features assist them and, if necessary, provide contact information for assistance. The AMIA system can speak to patients in English, Spanish or French Canadian.
The AMIA System is also up to 40 percent smaller and 30 percent lighter than HOMECHOICE and HOMECHOICE PRO Systems. It features a folding design when the touchscreen is not in use. The compact design means the AMIA System fits in a TSA-compliant carry-on case or can be taken in a car, enabling patients to conduct therapy when travelling for work or leisure.
