Fresenius launches connected health platform for patients on home dialysis
Fresenius Medical Care North America has announced the launch of TheHub, its new health platform designed to improve the remote monitoring of patients on home dialysis.
“This best-in-class solution offers a technology hub that improves the experience for patients and the entire care team,” Jeff Burbank, chief strategy and transformation officer at Fresenius, said in a press release. “The simple and streamlined experience supports our efforts to advance and accelerate the adoption on home therapies while ensuring our patients stay well connected to their care teams.”
To achieve this goal, TheHub consists of three integrated applications, according to the release. These include a “PatientHub,” which allows patients to access lab results/medications and message their care team; a “CareTeamHub,” which consists of daily monitoring and clinical decision support; and a “ProviderHub,” which provides physicians with real-time access to medical records from a variety of devices.
“The new suite of cloud applications is making our connected health technologies easier to use for providers and patients,” Robert Kossmann, MD, chief medical officer of Fresenius, said. “We know these new tools are essential to helping patients succeed on home therapies and are committed to ongoing improvement of our remote monitoring capabilities.”
TheHub will be on display next week at the American Society of Nephrology’s Annual Meeting, from which Healio/Nephrology will be providing live coverage.
