No Place Like Home for the Holidays

No Place Like Home for the Holidays

Home is defined as a place where something normally or naturally lives.  It is an environment that is comfortable, regardless of the location or residence.  It is often said, “There is no place like home for the holidays”.  This year, home may look a little different.  Perhaps it is now accompanied by a portal to view other family members.  Maybe facetime or zoom has become your connection to some distant family members.  Protecting family and those at risk is certainly on the minds of many. 

According to the National Kidney Foundation 1 in 3 American adults is at risk for CKD, now the 9th leading cause of death in the United States.  The Advancing Kidney Health Initiative has also turned the focus to home, associating better outcomes for hospitalizations and mortality rates with home therapy options.   Advancement in provisions for educational sessions by licensed personnel at specific stages of Chronic Kidney Disease will assure more opportunities for home therapies are available for patients.  Chronic Kidney Disease Detection and evaluation are becoming key components of renal programs.  Understanding progression, extraction of trending data, and inclusion of clinical pathways will be key to navigation of the road to home therapies and success with the new ETC Models. 

Safer “at home” isn’t just a result of the recent pandemic.  It applies to more than the comfort found within our homes.  Safer at home includes home therapies.  It includes educating patients, demonstrating success, and producing better outcomes for the patient, and the facility.  Equipped with a configurable platform based on the facility’s workflow, Visonex can assist your organization with home therapies!
