Scholarcy highlights

  • Peritoneal dialysis is an ideal model for testing remote monitoring
  • We evaluated the RM application longitudinally in stable patients undergoing automated PD
  • We analyzed cost-effectiveness of RM-APD measuring the number of night alarms, number of hospital visits, direct and indirect costs
  • The distance traveled by patients in the case of RM-APD was reduced by 1,134 km with a time saving of 1,554 min for patients
  • All patients found that it is easy to use the RM system and were satisfied with the high level of interaction with the care team and with the possibility of timely resolving technical problems. These data confirm the long-term benefits of RM applied to APD
  • The use of a tablet computer platform to optimize the care of patients receiving peritoneal dialysis: a pilot study
