Abstract

Home hemodialysis (HD) is undergoing a resurgence. A major driver of this is economics, however, providers are also encouraged by a combination of excellent patient outcomes and patient experiences as well as the development of newer technologies that offer ease of use. Home HD offers significant advantages in flexible scheduling and the practical implementation of extended hours dialysis. This paper explores the reasons why home HD is making a comeback and strives to offer approaches to improve the uptake of this dialysis modality.
