Dialyze Direct to Exhibit In-Person at Becker’s 12th Annual Meeting held in Chicago
BROOKLYN, N.Y April 23, 2022 — Dialyze Direct, the nation’s leading provider of home hemodialysis services in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), is pleased to announce that it will be an exhibitor at Becker’s Hospital Review’s 12th Annual Meeting this week in Chicago, as the healthcare media company returns to an in-person event this year.
As part of its exhibit, Dialyze Direct will be showcasing the results from its recent research, peerreviewed and published in Hemodialysis International, which demonstrates the correlation between more frequent dialysis (MFD) and more rapid post-dialysis recovery time (DRT) for endstage renal disease (ESRD) patients in SNFs.
Those findings add to Dialyze Direct’s previously published research providing additional evidence that higher acuity ESRD patients are able to receive clinically appropriate care in nonhospital settings, creating expanded discharge opportunities for this clinically challenging population. For hospitals and payers seeking value-based care and the best possible therapies and outcomes for patients, the data exhibits the advantages of MFD and DRT, which lend to reduced mortality and fewer hospitalizations. SNFs will also find the data advantageous as they look to build and improve relationships with hospitals and payers.
In addition to its proven clinical and quality of life benefits, the company’s congregate care model overcomes long standing socio-economic barriers associated with home hemodialysis, allowing all SNF-residents, including members of historically marginalized communities access to Dialyze Direct’s model of care and its superior clinical and quality of life outcomes.
Starting late last year and continuing into the first quarter of 2022, Dialyze Direct experienced a period of strategic growth and collaboration. This month, the company completed its previously announced acquisition of Compass Home Dialysis, a regional dialysis provider in Pennsylvania with on-site dialysis services in nine SNFs, as well as an outpatient dialysis clinic. Late last year, Dialyze Direct acquired Renew Dialysis, a regional SNF dialysis provider in Ohio and Virginia. And recently the company signed a Letter of Intent to collaborate with fellow dialysis provider Satellite Healthcare. Those moves continue to set Dialyze Direct’s position as the leading SNF dialysis provider in the United States, with on-site dialysis services in more than 150 SNFs in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
“We are looking forward to meeting face-to-face with other providers of healthcare services and professionals interested in learning about the remarkable changes occurring in our industry,” said Robert Aberman, senior vice president, population health at Dialyze Direct. “Today more and more SNFs are beginning to experience the benefits of MFD for patients with kidney failure, including an improved quality of life, more energy to participate in necessary rehabilitation activities and the freedom to take fewer medications. We welcome conversation about how we are improving dialysis for geriatric patients.”
Dialyze Direct representatives will be available at Exhibit Booth #1211 at Becker’s in-person event at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago April 24-28, 2022.
