Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an ongoing journey. And while every journey is unique, Baxter is with you every step of the way, providing options that can balance your lifestyle with high standards of care.
Once you've been diagnosed with CKD or end-stage renal disease, it can seem like everything changes; you must learn about the nature of the disease, and make challenging decisions about your treatment options.
We understand the dramatic difference effective renal care can make when sequenced in a way that works with your body. We also understand your therapy goals include feeling well and maintaining an active lifestyle to work, travel and enjoy life to your choosing. That’s why we work to support you and your healthcare providers to deliver comprehensive treatment options designed to support the best care possible and help make therapy easier for you and your family.
Baxter has supported patients on their renal care journey with innovative therapy options for more than 60 years. We pioneered both home dialysis (peritoneal dialysis) and in-center dialysis (hemodialysis), and we’re not done yet. We are committed to helping you achieve the best outcomes possible through simplified care.
My home dialysis system talks me through therapy; it’s like having a friend in the room with you. My favorite part of the system is its remote connectivity feature, because I know my nurse can see how my treatments are going and call if something doesn’t look right.

Remote Patient Management
Our SHARESOURCE remote patient management platform is a two-way, cloud-based telehealth technology widely adopted globally for home renal patients. Remote patient management allows your healthcare team to remotely monitor and manage your therapy from their clinic, which includes the ability to adjust your prescription to optimize therapy without the need for a clinic visit. This added visibility to your home therapy also allows them to follow up with you in a more timely manner if they have questions about your treatments. SHARESOURCE is featured with our AMIA APD System and HOMECHOICE CLARIA APD System.
