Remote Access Monitoring Providing data-driven vascular access care

Among The Leaders in Vascular Access Surveillance

When an arteriovenous (AV) access begins to have complications, a referral for an intervention is standard procedure. The challenge for clinical staff is knowing which patients are having issues and need a referral.

Vasc-Alert solves this problem in an elegant manner. It is data driven, testing each access automatically every treatment, all without staff involvement. When access issues begin to develop, a weekly report alerts the staff of patients developing access issues before they become problematic so that they can make timely referrals.

Improving Patient Care Begins with a Functioning Access

Efficient dialysis requires a well-functioning, patent access. An access with issues will be inefficient, eventually leading to thrombosis, unnecessary hospitalizations, and loss of the access. Improving patient outcomes requires effective access care.

Efficacy of the Vasc-Alert Solution

Every AV access follows an individualized path, from first cannulation to final abandonment. Thrombosis accelerates this aging process. The key to longer access life is avoiding this adverse event. Numerous studies have shown that frequently testing the access and quantifying the risk for complications, reduces thrombosis.

The Justification for Improving Access Care

When patients suffer access complications like a conversion from an AV access to a catheter, it costs the facility between $3,000-4,000 due to missed treatments and the added cost for catheter use. Reducing these costs by making timely referrals for intervention can easily pay for the service. Furthermore, if the facility is participating in value-based care, hospitalizations and new access placements are also reduced.
