Vasc-Alert is a unique vascular access surveillance program for hemodialysis patients that allows care providers the ability to detect and respond to potential access complications before they arise. The program works by analyzing treatment data to derive the intra-access pressure at the arterial and venous needle sites. When the pressure trend increases, it is an indication that stenosis may be growing. Weekly reports alert staff to possible issues allowing for quick evaluation and invention. Read More..
Vasc-Alert tracks increased pressure as stenosis develops
Quality of Care
Vasc-Alert is an investment in a Predictive Analytical tool that identifies developing issues in the vascular access so patients can receive preventive care before costly complications can occur. Vasc-Alert reports make it easy to spot the trend of growing stenosis, since the patient’s vascular access is analyzed with every single dialysis session utilizing standard treatment data.
By using Vasc-Alert Predictive Analytics reports, your staff may reduce access complications principally caused by thrombotic events. Quality of care may improve, excessive missed treatments may be reduced, and fewer patients may be forced to use catheters, all of which can improve your bottom line. There may also be improvements in operations by utilizing less staff time and resources to manage complications. Read More..
