Treatment at Satellite Dialysis

Helping You Feel Your Best and Live the Best Life Possible

Choosing a dialysis treatment option is something you do with your doctor and extended healthcare team. Which option is right for you? That depends on your medical needs and what kind of lifestyle you want to have on dialysis.

Home Hemodialysis

Satellite WellBound teams thoroughly train you and your care giver to make sure you are comfortable managing your treatment at home with using an artificial kidney machine called a dialyzer.

Peritoneal Dialysis

Fluid is introduced into the abdomen through a permanent tube. The fluid collects toxins and excess fluid from the body and is then flushed out the tube.

Optimal Start

The highest morbidity, mortality, hospitalization and costs occur in the first 90 days of dialysis therapy. Optimal Start® is Satellite Healthcare’s proven program to coordinate care for patients new to dialysis. It gets patients off to a positive start and minimizes complications.

Optimal Start® includes:

  • Focused patient interventions offering easy-to understand explanations
  • Patient-specific resources, training and support
  • A specially trained staff member who acts as a single point of contact

Optimal Return

Optimal Return® was developed to focus on the new needs of a patient after a hospital admission. It is not a fact sheet to review, but a reminder that the patient’s clinical situation has changed, the likelihood for depression may be increased and the patient requires a comprehensive clinical assessment as if he/she were a brand-new patient.

How does Optimal Return® help the continuity of patient care?

  • Safer return of patients from acute hospitalization to dialysis center
  • Reduced treatment-related complications
  • Reduced medication-related adverse events
  • Reduced hospital readmission rates
  • Improved communication between acute care setting, patient/caretakers, dialysis center, and nephrologist
