  • Latest offering from global leader in automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) technology
  • Approved for adult and pediatric populations
  • Features Sharesource, the only two-way remote patient management platform available in Canada for patients with kidney failure

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 1, 2021 /CNW/ - Baxter Canada, an innovator in renal care, today announced Health Canada license of Homechoice Claria APD System with Sharesource digital health platform. Homechoice Claria is indicated for adult and pediatric patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and combines a simple user interface with the benefits of Sharesource, the only two-way remote patient management platform in Canada.

"The approval of Homechoice Claria with Sharesource greatly accelerates our mission to improve the quality of life of Canadian PD patients," said Neil Da Silva, Business Unit Director, Renal Care. "Through digital connectivity, we are excited to offer another therapy management tool that allows patients to feel safe and comfortable at home with the confidence of still being connected to their trusted clinician." 

New data presented during the 2021 American Society of Nephrology's annual Kidney Week showed that patients may experience a survival rate nearly two-times higher and a prolonged time to an adverse event and hospitalization when the Sharesource remote patient management digital health platform is used to help manage home APD.1 

Sharesource remote patient management allows healthcare professionals to monitor their patients' home dialysis treatments, and then remotely adjust therapy without the need for patients to make unplanned visits to the clinic. Sharesource is the most widely implemented home dialysis digital health platform. It is used to care for nearly 50% of all patients on Baxter's APD systems globally. The digital health platform is available in more than 70 countries, and it has managed more than 32 million treatments to date.
