Company’s Research Initiative Recognized as Novel, Innovative Approach to Deliver More Personalized Dialysis Treatment
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Outset Medical, a commercial-stage company delivering first-of-its-kind technology into the growing global dialysis market, today announced that a project featuring the Tablo™ Hemodialysis System has been selected as a winner of the KidneyX Redesign Dialysis Competition. Outset’s winning concept seeks to couple data from Tablo’s unique set of sensors and automation capabilities with physiologic data from the patient to deliver personalized dialysis treatments, ultimately improving outcomes for patients.
The KidneyX Redesign Dialysis Competition is a partnership between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the American Society of Nephrology to support innovative strategies for tackling kidney disease, a space that has been historically underfunded despite a growing patient population and poor patient outcomes, including high mortality and low quality of life. These sub-optimal outcomes are due in part to dialysis treatment decisions driven by incomplete, imprecise physiologic measurements and a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment planning. Tablo has a proprietary suite of sensors and data sets that can allow it to merge data from the machine and the patient in order to automatically adjust treatment parameters and customize therapy to an individual patient’s needs, all without interrupting clinic workflow.
