NxStage Initiates 2013 'Call to Action' Campaign with Launch of Hemodialysis At Home: A Better Way For a Better Life

-changing therapy."

More frequent and at home treatments made possible with home hemodialysis can allow people with kidney disease the freedom and flexibility to reclaim their lives.  In fact, in a survey, more than 90% of nephrologists said they would choose a home dialysis therapy for themselves if informed they needed renal replacement therapy, with HHD being the preferred option.  But surprisingly, more than 90% of patients undergoing dialysis in the United States are doing three-times-weekly in-center therapy, a therapy very few physicians would accept for themselves.  

Supporters of Home Hemodialysis:  A Better Way For a Better Life believe patients need to be better educated about the treatment options that exist and that Medicare payment policies should not prevent them from doing the treatment that they – and their doctors – feel is best.

About Hemodialysis at Home:  A Better Way For a Better Life:  Hemodialysis at Home: A Better Way For A Better Life brings together dialyzors, care partners, physicians, nurses, patient advocates, and other renal professionals from across the country who believe patients need to have better access to and more awareness of the improved quality of life reported to be made possible by home dialysis technology.  Hemodialysis at Home: A Better Way For A Better Life is a project of NxStage.  For more information, please visit www.HemoAtHome.org.
