NN&I interviewed Leslie Trigg, CEO of Outset Medical, on the company's new Tablo dialysis machine, which is aimed at clinics who want to develop the self-care option for patients.
NN&l: What are Tablo's key attributes?
LESLIE TRIGG: The Tablo technology is aimed at meaningfully improving the care experience for patients and lowering labor, infrastructure, and clinical costs for providers. In dialysis clinics, this comes in the form of in-center self care in which patients are able to set up and manage their Tablo treatments independently.
Three key Tablo technology innovations enable this approach: consumer product design simplicity, integrated water purification with dialysate production on demand, and wireless medical informatics.
NN&l: Why is the Tablo a good fit for in-center self-care?
TRIGG: We've stayed very focused on minimizing the number of set up steps, eliminating memorization and mental math, and building a user experience to ensure it is accessible. In the clinic, that's translated into Tablo training times measured in single-digit hours, not weeks, and fast set up times that allow for self care to fit well into the clinic's existing workflow.
